Immigrant (IV) and Nonimmigrant Visa (NIV) Information
Welcome to the visa pages of the U.S. Embassy Jakarta, Indonesia. The Embassy is closed on both Indonesian and U.S. holidays and weekends.
What is a Visa ?
A visa is issued by a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. A visa entitles the holder to travel to the United States and apply for admission; it does not guarantee entry. An immigration inspector at the port of entry determines the visa holder's eligibility for admission into the United States.
- Nonimmigrant visas are required by anyone seeking temporary admission into the United States for tourism, business, education, medical treatment, or petition-based employment. The type of visa required depends on your purpose of travel.
- Immigrant visas are for applicants planning to permanently relocate to the United States.
Location: Jalan Medan Merdeka Selatan No. 5, Jakarta Pusat. The Embassy is just south of the Indonesian National Monument in Central Jakarta. There is no parking at or near the Embassy so please come by taxi.

Since 2011 all applicants may check the status of their entry through the Entry Status Check at www.dvlottery.state.gov. Entry Status Check will be the ONLY means by which lottery applicants will be notified of their selection for DV-2012. Additionally, Entry Status Check will describe how the successful applicant can proceed with the application visa application. The correct procedures are explained in the DV Lottery 2012 Instructions "Selection of Applicants."
