Getting an Indonesian Tourist Visa from the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore.
Getting there: 7 Chatsworth Road.Map.
It’s about 10-15 minutes walk South-West from Orchard MRT station. Bus 75 (to Bt Panjang Int.) stops nearby (at the stop for “lucky towers” apartments), or there is a taxi stand outside. The embassy is in a red-brick compound. Approaching from the West, it’s the third entrance gate.
Hours: Applications: 0900-1200 Collection: 3pm – 5pm. They said they are open on Saturdays, but the website says Monday-Friday only.
Turnaround time: 2 working days.
Price: 65 Singapore Dollars (no other currency accepted). Pay cashier when applying. The price is the same for your first or your Nth visa.
A few points of note on the specimen (completed) form : Visa approval: ‘No’ is checked; Number of visa approval: NIL is entered; 9 other useful info, (a) other countries travel doc: NO is checked; (b) return, through ticket: is completed with flight details
Possibility for second application: Sure, no problem. Can’t even understand why you are asking, sir.
Navigate on the site to Services > Foreign Services. The Tourist Visa Page was last updated 14 August 2009, but all the information seems to still be valid. Update September 2012: The old website was hacked/defunked. I have updated the link to point to the new website, but I can’t immediately see any information on it about tourist visas.
Other: Take another form of ID with you (as well as your passport), you will have to leave your secondary id at the security desk as deposit to get a visitors pass which you need to enter the embassy grounds, or as the sign says: “Kindly Issue any card with your name printed on it as a verification. Examples: Driving Licence, Membership Card etc. (No Business Card Please)”.
There are no obvious dress restrictions in place.
There are photocopying facilites, photo-booths and a restaurant inside the embassy grounds.
