Indonesia Travel Advice

Make sure you are up-to-date with the pre-departure essentials before your trip to Indonesia. 

Passport & Visas

Visa requirements for visiting Indonesia vary depending on the visitor’s nationality and the purpose of their visit. Many countries are eligible for a visa exemption, allowing travelers to enter Indonesia for tourism or business purposes for a certain period without a visa.

Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your intended date of departure from Indonesia. This is a standard requirement in many countries and helps prevent any issues during your stay.

Bear in mind that our Indonesia travel advice is for guidance only. You are advised to check the details as it is your responsibility to have all the official documents ready before traveling.

You can consult the latest travel advice from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. We recommend all travelers to check their Government National Travel Advisory prior to their departure: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA

Travel Insurance 

You need to have valid and adequate travel insurance before your tour with Travel Talk begins. It is your responsibility to have your insurance ready, but we are more than happy to provide you with guidance in the process. You can visit our travel insurance page for more details. For now, here is some Indonesia travel advice that you need to keep in mind when choosing the right plan.

  • To prevent any unwanted surprises, make sure your plan covers emergency medical situations, cancellations, and threats against your personal belongings.
  • Based on your tour, there may be adventure activities that your travel insurance does not include. So, look carefully at what your policy covers. 
  • Make sure you have the latest information regarding safety and health issues. You can find useful Indonesia travel advice on governmental websites.
When to Go
  • High Season

Visiting Indonesia during the high season can offer a mix of vibrant experiences and challenges, particularly in terms of weather and climate. The high season typically coincides with the dry season, which varies slightly depending on the region. In popular tourist destinations like Bali, the high season typically spans from May to September when the weather is generally sunny, warm, and relatively dry. This period offers ideal conditions for outdoor activities such as surfing, snorkeling, and sightseeing.

However, it’s essential to be prepared for occasional showers, especially in the afternoons or evenings, as Indonesia’s tropical climate can be unpredictable.

  • Shoulder Season

Visiting Indonesia during the shoulder season can be a delightful compromise between the highs and lows of peak and off-peak times. The shoulder season typically falls between the high and low seasons, often transitioning from one to the other. In Indonesia, this period varies depending on the region but generally occurs during the transitional months of April and October.

During the shoulder season, travelers can enjoy a more balanced experience with fewer crowds compared to the high season while still benefiting from relatively good weather conditions.

Visa requirements for visiting Indonesia vary depending on the visitor’s nationality and the purpose of their visit. Many countries are eligible for a visa exemption, allowing travelers to enter Indonesia for tourism or business purposes for a certain period without a visa.

Useful Tips for Indonesia Tours

money

Money Matters

The currency in Indonesia is the Indonesian Rupiah, abbreviated as IDR.

ATMs are available in central locations, but access is difficult in rural areas. Credit cards are widely accepted except in some small shops.

We recommend carrying cash with you at all times. Some entrance fees may require cash payment.

Singapore travel advice

The Food Scene

Indonesian cuisine is a vibrant and diverse tapestry of flavors, reflecting the country’s rich cultural heritage and geographical diversity.

Rice is a staple in Indonesian meals, often accompanied by a variety of flavorful dishes such as rendang, a slow-cooked beef curry bursting with aromatic spices.

Nasi goreng, a fragrant fried rice dish typically served with a fried egg on top; and sate, skewered and grilled meats (often chicken or beef) served with a delicious peanut sauce.
