If you plan to stay In Indonesia for more than 60 days (you must have a Social Visa for such a stay length), then you will also need to receive from Operation Wallacea both the temporary flight ticket and the letter from the Indonesian Embassy. Please present these documents to the airline upon checking-in for your international flight ONLY if the airline asks to see an onward ticket within 30 days of you arriving in Indonesia. The tempoary ticket will be sent to you from our Indonesia office approximately 72hrs before your scheduled international flight. Please make sure you check your email account for this ticket a couple of days before you fly. If you have not received the temporary ticket within 48 hours of you departing to Indonesia please contact our Indonesia office urgently (email@example.com). The letter from the Embassy will be sent to you well before your expedition commences. Please ensure you print both of these documents and take them with you to the airport. If it is not possible to print the documents then please take a screen shot of them on your phone for presentation at the airport.
For a stay of more than 60 days you will need to obtain a Social Visa. This visa needs to be obtained from an Indonesian embassy or consulate prior to your planned travel to Indonesia. Please visit the website of the Indonesian embassy of the country where you will apply in order to understand the application process including processing time and cost. A Social Visa initially provides you with a period of 60 days in-country and is extendable for a further 30 days once you arrive on expedition.
Anyone wishing to apply for a Social Visa will need to contact the Indonesia office (firstname.lastname@example.org) in order to request a sponsorship letter. Please email a scanned copy of your passport (main page only), indicate the embassy/consulate at which you will apply and let us know if you are visiting the forest site, Hoga or both. Please do this as soon as possible, as it can take time for the embassy to process your visa.
