Conversion Application

Immigration Procedure

For foreign students who want to study in Indonesia, we suggest them to apply Social Cultural Visit Visa /Visa Kunjungan Sosial Budaya (VKSB) issued by the Indonesian Embassy or consulates in their respective countries. VKSB is given only for two (2) months and may be extended up to six (6) months.


Conversion is the change in status from VKSB to KITAS and can only be arranged at the Immigration Office in Jakarta through regional Immigration Office.
