Visa-free Travel to Indonesia Finally!

Indonesia is a land of spellbinding wonders and rich culture. From the glorious beaches at Seminyak to the magnificent still-active volcano Mount Bromo to the fascinating temples, Indonesia has everything from nature, to culture.

Here comes the good news. The Indonesian government has officially extended its visa-free entries policy to an extra 30 countries including Japan, South Korea, USA, Canada and Great Britain! Which means you finally don’t have to pay the frankly quite pricey $35 for the little sticker you are required to get before you enter the country!
