Australia to enhance visa arrangements for Indonesian visitors
6 November 2015
Australia will introduce a three-year, multiple-entry visa for Indonesian visitors to Australia next year and expand online visa lodgement to all Indonesian citizens by 2017.
The new measures will make the process of applying for an Australian visa simpler for Indonesian tourists and business people and will enhance tourism and business links between Australia and Indonesia.
“The new three-year multi-entry visas really opens the door to repeat visits and provides us with a great marketing platform,” said Tourism Australia’s Managing Director John O’Sullivan.
The announcement came during the inaugural Indonesia Australia Business Week (IABW), an Australian Government trade and investment mission to Indonesia from 17-20 November 2015.
Indonesia is Australia’s 13th largest market for leisure visitor arrivals and ranks 17th with respect to visitor expenditure.
