Visa and Immigration

Visa is a stay permit arrangement. There are different types of Indonesian Visas available, however, international students at BINUS University must use a proper study visa: Limited Stay Permit for Study Purpose (index code: C 316) to support their stay permit during the study period.

In order to support the students’ visa application, BINUS University will send all necessary documents bundled in BINUS-LoA Package to students via e-mail.

As for visa application:

  • To start with the visa application, students may go to their chosen Indonesian embassy/consulate as written on the TELEX. Students must also bring the TELEX, Letter of Acceptance, Visa Sponsor & Guarantee Letter along with other documents required (sometimes varies by the embassy/consulate);
  • If a student has double citizenship, he/she must use the passport which they submitted to BINUS University upon application earlier (also written on their TELEX). Their passport ID has been recorded by the Indonesian authorities for visa purpose;
  • The students should make an appointment and process their visa right away to their chosen Indonesian embassy/consulate;
