The visa application normally takes five working days for the Darwin Consulate to process (assuming information supplied is complete and correct- this is your responsibility to check this NOT the consulate's). Students can send their visa applications after they have completed their enrolment applications. However, students should organise their visas well in advance of their departure date to Indonesia.
Here are general instructions for the social cultural visa (word 24KB) from the Consulate, the form itself also has instructions on the top and below are instructions for filling in specific sections in the visa form:
2. Along with your visa application form in duplicate you will need to provide two passport size colour photos (don't forget to take a couple of spares with you to Lombok) and your passport, valid for six months.
3. Include payment of $60 (money order preferable) to: Consulate of the Republic Indonesia in Darwin
4. Include a self-addressed prepaid registered envelope so that the Darwin Consulate can return your passport with visa inside directly to your postal address.
5. All students send their visa applications via registered post to:
