Obtaining Student Visa

There is no one-application student visa in Indonesia. Thus, once you got a letter of acceptance from an Indonesian higher education institution, you have to:


  • 1

    Apply for a Study Permit from the Indonesian Directorate General of Higher Education

  • 2

    Apply for an entry visa (VITAS) at the Indonesian Embassy/Consulate in your country

  • 3

    Change the VITAS into a KITAS (limited stay permit) at the Immigration Department after arrival in Indonesia

  • 4

    Get a Certificate of Police Registration Card


All of these things altogether make up the Indonesian student visa.
