Traveling to Jakarta

Visa Information

If you are a US passport holder, you must have a passport that has 1) at least two blank pages, and 2) is valid for at least six months beyond the date of your arrival in Indonesia. When you arrive in Jakarta, you will go through immigration and obtain a visa on arrival (which costs approximately $35 USD). If you are traveling from somewhere other than the US, please check your country’s travel guidelines.

Health & Vaccination Requirements

The Indonesian government requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination in order to enter the country. No other vaccinations are required, but we recommend talking to your doctor about travel vaccinations. 

Travel Tips

  • Traffic in Jakarta is very bad and it can often take 2-3 hours to get to the center of the city. We recommend using a shuttle service to get from the airport to your hotel, or taking the train
  • You should not drink the tap water in Jakarta. Make sure to bring bottled water with you each day as you attend the conference.
  • As a Muslim country, it is recommended that both men and women avoid wearing shorts (despite the heat). We also recommend that women bring loose, comfortable clothes with sleeves. You can read a more detailed list here.
  • October is in the rainy season in Indonesia, so we recommend bringing a travel umbrella.
  • In order to use your electronic devices, we strongly recommend bringing a travel adapter and a step down converter.
