Socio-Cultural Visit Visa – Index B 211A (VKSB 211A)

Socio-Cultural Visit Visa (Visa Kunjungan Social Budaya/VSKB) Index 211 is 60 days single entry visa for those coming to Indonesia for a short-term stay, not as tourists and not for business. This visa is recommended for international students who wish to participate in student exchange programmes and stay longer than 60 days. VSKB 211 can be extended up to 4 (four) times consecutively at the regional Immigration Office. Each extension granted is no more than 30 days (extension subject to immigration approval). The application of extension requires certificate/recommendations issued by the institution where the students study.

General requirements

  1. A Letter of Guarantee
  2. A copy of a valid passport with more than 6 (six) months validity
  3. A Sponsor Letter
  4. A copy of bank account with balance at least USD 1,500.00 or in other currency equivalent to USD 1,500.00
  5. Two recent color close-up photos (4 cm x 6 cm) with a white background

In case an international student has to arrive in Indonesia within less than 3 (three) months and does not have enough time to apply for VITAS, he/she can apply for this type of visa. VKSB could be converted into ITAS which be valid for 12-24 months at the Immigration Head Office in Jakarta through the regional Immigration Office. Once the student arrives, he/she must immediately apply for Study Permit since this document is required for this conversion process.
