All international students must have a valid visa to enter Indonesia.

obtain this immigration document will take about 60 to 90 days,
because student should get a study permit (from the Ministry of
Research, Technology & Higher Education in Indonesia) and telex
visa (from the Directorate General of Immigration-Jakarta) before
applying for student visa at the Indonesian Embassy in your home
