Bisnis, JAKARTA – Following a recent decree issued by the Minister of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia Yasonna Laoly, the government has implemented a freeze on visa-free visits for 159 countries worldwide. 

Previously, Indonesia had granted easy entry permits to 169 countries since 2016, allowing visitors to enter without a visa. This new measure means that only 10 countries are now eligible for visa-free entry into Indonesia. The decision was made through the issuance of the Minister's Decree Number M.HH-GR.01.07 of 2023, on Temporary Suspension of Free Visas for Countries, Special Administrative Region Governments of a Country, and Certain Entities.

Effective on June 7, 2023, the Indonesian government has implemented a temporary suspension of the visa-free visit policy (BVK) for 159 countries. 

This decision limits visa-free entry to only 10 countries, all of which are members of the Asean family. These countries include Brunei Darussalam, the Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Vietnam. The visa-free facility, previously granted to 159 countries under Presidential Regulation Number 21 of 2016, has been temporarily suspended in accordance with the new regulation.
