Many regions and cities in Indonesia are safe for travel by US citizens and other foreign nationals. Nevertheless, for their own safety and with respect to certain domestic conditions, we strongly advise the visa applicant to contact the Indonesian Embassy/Consulate or their travel agency for current information of their travel destinations within Indonesia.
Furthermore, there is one region in Indonesia that require special permission for travel: Papua. Please inform the Indonesian Embassy/Consulate about any intention to visit this restricted region; this also applies to those who work there (e.g. Freeport employees, religious workers, etc.). The visa applicant should apply for special authorization as early as possible; it may take more than two weeks before special permission can be granted or denied. Visitors who enter these restricted regions without authorization are subject to arrest, detention, and prosecution according to Indonesian law.
