Passport Making Fee

Quoted from kompas.com, currently all passports in Indonesia have 48 pages because passports with 24 pages are no longer issued.

When making a passport you are required to pay a fee based on the type of passport you want to make, namely:

  1. Usual passport 48 pages IDR 350,000.00
  2. Ordinary electronic passport 48 pages IDR 650,000.00
  3. Passport expediting services completed on the same day IDR 1,000,000.00 (accelerated services excluding passport issuance fees).

How to Extend Passport

Passports have a validity period of 5 years. That's why you need to pay attention to the validity period of the passport you have before using it to travel abroad.

Many use the term passport extension to apply for a passport that is about to enter its expiry date, but please note that basically there is no term passport extension.

The correct term is actually a replacement passport, because in practice you will get a new passport number with a validity period that has been added to another five years.

To replace your passport, you can do it at least six months before the expiry date.

The requirements for replacing a passport that is about to expire are quite simple, namely:

  1. E-KTP or certificate in the process for those who do not have e-KTP
  2. Old passport
  3. In addition to bringing the original documents, you also need to bring photocopies. Furthermore, for the passport replacement process, you can follow the same steps as how to make a new passport online above, namely starting from registering the online passport queue and visiting the immigration office bringing the required documents for further processing.

The cost for replacing a passport is the same as for making a new passport, which is IDR 350,000 for a regular passport, and IDR 650,000 for an e-passport.

Types of Passport in Indonesia

Every Indonesian citizen is only allowed to hold 1 (one) valid passport in his own name. According to immigration.go.id there are 3 types of passports in Indonesia, namely as follows:

1. Ordinary Passport

Ordinary passports are issued by the minister or immigration officials appointed and issued to Indonesian citizens. An ordinary passport contains 48 pages and is valid for 5 years.

Passports are state-owned documents that can be canceled or revoked at any time by the state without notification.

2. Service Passport

Service passports are issued to Indonesian citizens who travel outside the Indonesian Territory for non-diplomatic assignments or official travel. Diplomatic passports and service passports are issued by the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

3. Diplomatic Passport

Diplomatic passports are issued to Indonesian citizens who travel outside the Indonesian Territory in the context of diplomatic assignments or assignments.

The use of this type of passport has been regulated in Law 6/2011 concerning Immigration and PP 31/2013 concerning Regulations for Implementing Law Number 6 of 2011.

This passport is commonly used by civil servants, members of the TNI/Polri, as well as members of the DPR, DPD and MPR.

What About Lost or Damaged Passport

Reporting from immigration.go.id, an application for a replacement passport can be submitted if the validity period is about to expire (less than six months of passport validity).

The validity period has expired, been lost, damaged during the passport issuance process, or damaged outside the issuance process (torn, wet, burned, crossed out, etc.)

Based on Presidential Regulation (Perpres) Number 28 of 2019 which has been officially in effect since May 1 2019, replacement of a passport due to loss or damage will incur a fine of Rp. 1,000,000.00 for a lost passport and Rp. 500,000.00 for a damaged passport.

However, this fee will not be charged to the owner of a lost or damaged passport due to force majeure, such as floods, earthquakes, fires, riots and other natural disasters determined by the competent authority.

1. Requirements for Making a Lost Passport

If your passport is lost while still in Indonesia, you can apply for a new passport with a process that is almost the same as making a new passport or replacing an old passport.

  1. Lost report letter from local police
  2. Identity card (KTP) that is still valid;
  3. Family card;
