It is possible to get a 60-day tourist visa at the Indonesian Consulate in Singapore.
Documents to provide:
65 Singapore dollars in cash - they do not accept card payments, and they only accept Singapore dollars.
Photo ID - although you can do one inside the consulate
Copy of passport - although you can do one in consulate for 50 cents. Passport must have at least 6 months remaining validity.
Copy of proof of travel to Indonesia - i.e. Ferry ticket or plane ticket. Ferry ticket to Batam works fine.
Copy of proof of onward travel: I had bought a ferry ticket back to Singapore and they told me this was not needed. But other people, like Ashish (see his answer), might have to provide one. So just bring one to be on the safe side, i.e. Ferry ticket from Batam to Singapore.
Additionally, bring something of value to leave at the entrance (a deposit to leave against the badge they lend you for your visit at the consulate): an ID card, or a bank card, or a smartphone (I only had that and they accepted it!), or else.
- Seems like mornings are for visa applications: from 09:00 to 12:00
- Seems like afternoons are for picking up visas: from 15:00 to 17:00
- No tank top
- No shorts
- Flip flops not ok in theory but fine in practice (everyone was wearing them).
Another thing: there are toilets just before the entrance of the embassy, so that you can get changed there if needed.
You can get there by metro, station Orchard. Then walk around 10 minutes to get there.
See the Indonesian Consulate on Google Map.
The address is: Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, 7 Chatsworth Rd, Singapore 249761
- When I went there, the process was very straightforward and fast. I probably didn't spend more than 15 minutes at the embassy.
- Processing your application takes 2 to 3 working days. In my case, I had to go get my visa 2 days later (applied the Monday morning, picked up the visa on Wednesday).
You can (and should) double-check all this info by visiting at least the official website of the embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Singapore.
