Travel to the EU

Useful information on travelling abroad for EU citizens; as well as information on travelling and studying in the EU for citizens of Indonesia and Brunei.

Nationals of European Union (EU) and Schengen Member States in need of consular assistance in Indonesia should take contact with the Embassies/ Consulates of their countries. The emergency contacts in EU/ Schengen Embassies in Jakarta are listed below. You are also invited to consult the travel advices available on the websites of those Embassies, which are regularly updated.

Any EU citizen in a non-EU country where his/ her own national State has no representation is entitled to protection by the diplomatic or consular authorities of any other EU country. EU citizens in such a situation are entitled to protection under the same conditions as the nationals of that other EU country.

In Indonesia, seven EU Member States do not have a resident Embassy. Six of them have concluded representation agreements with another EU Member State. Please consult the list below to find out which Embassy you are advised to contact.

EU and Schengen Member States cooperate closely locally on consular protection matters through constant exchange of information, crisis preparedness and collective action when needed in case of consular crisis such as natural disasters. The EU Delegation assists actively this cooperation.

If you are planning a short stay in a European Union (EU) country, you may need a visa, depending on your nationality and on the rules in the country you wish to travel to.

For 26 European countries in what is called the 'Schengen area', a Schengen visa is issued for short stays, allowing its holder to travel and stay there for up to 90 days in any 180-day period. The 26 countries are:

  • 22 EU countries: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
  • 4 non-EU countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

Bruneian citizens can enter Schengen countries without a visa for a short stay of up to 90 days. Despite this visa exemption, travellers do not have an automatic right to enter the Schengen area. Border officials in Schengen countries may ask for other supporting documents such as: proof of accommodation, proof of sufficient funds or a return air ticket.

Indonesian citizens require a visa to enter the Schengen area. To apply, please check with the embassy of the EU country which will be your main destination. If it is not clear what the main destination country is, apply at the embassy of the country where you will have the longest visit. If the visits in different Schengen countries are for the same amount of time, the first destination will be the determining factor.

A Schengen visa is not appropriate for stays longer than 90 days, or if you plan to get a job or set up a business, trade or profession.

Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania and the United Kingdom are outside the Schengen area. These six EU countries have their own rules for issuing short-stay visas. For short-stay visa information here, check with the respective embassies.

The Delegation of the European Union does not issue visas.
