Advice If Traveling from Overseas or within Indonesia

A negative COVID-19 PCR test is still required to enter Indonesia or to stay at a Mentawai Resort. Refer to Circular Letter No. 5561/22/Disparpora (Mentawai Govt. Tourism Dept.): Indo1 / Indo2 / English

If travelling from Bali, we recommend booking an appointment with Dr Retno Safitri (Siloam Hospital) on +62 81916247778 (available on WA). PCR Testing is between 7.00 am – 9.00 am with the results ready in 3 days. The cost is Rp.900.000 (about USD 60.00).

Half the regular price for our packages and empty line-ups more than makes up for the requirement to be tested while remaining a responsible and healthy traveler and staying safe!

New E-Visas Now Available

Indonesia’s immigration department has recently released a new E-Visa system to replace the old telex visa process.

This means you no longer need to visit a consulate or embassy outside of Indonesia before entry. Instead, you can have your E-visa processed online in only 2-3 days, and travel directly to Indonesia to have your passport processed on entry.

Our current discounted rates are designed to subsidize the current USD 495 visa fee for foreigners to enter Indonesia, and those taking advantage are being rewarded with the most uncrowded line-ups seen in the past 30 years. For those living in Indonesia, it’s an absolute no brainer to visit while the borders are closed to free visa on arrival (VOA).

It is expected that the Indonesian government will reintroduce VOA via Bali initially as vaccines become available that are expected to begin being distributed in Bali from January 2021.

For Australians, the situation remains complex with the travel ban still in place by the Australian government, yet we are able to assist those intending to spend more than 3 months away to secure a travel permit to depart Australia, as well as having a visa to visit Indonesia.

Send us an email and we can let you know what is the best method for you to obtain a business or social visa to visit Indonesia and the pre-requisites for a travel permit to depart Australia, depending on your circumstances. For further information email [email protected]

For Surfers outside of Indonesia

It only takes 2-3 days for an E-visa visa to be issued. Christmas and New Years’ at Macaronis Resort has always been a blast, so why not book in your family to join us for a trip of a lifetime this Christmas and New Years’ to surf empty South Mentawai perfection all to yourself!

If you are keen to join us over this Festive Season, School Holidays, or to take part in our Surf Coaching Clinics, Contact us today!

We are taking every precaution to make sure our staff, guests, and the local community remains safe. Please read and follow these Tips for Health and Safety for when travelling to or from Macaronis Resort.
