Top 5 Tips for Choosing Visa agent in Indonesia – Thanks to the booming of tourism and the rapid development of Indonesia, a growing number of tourists can be seen in many regions of this stunning archipelago. Not only for visiting, but Indonesia has also become an ideal place for foreigners to work and live at the same time.
Many visa agents, both bogus and authentic, have been appearing around Indonesia, particularly in popular cities such as Bali and Jakarta. Moreover, the changing of immigration rules and regulations to apply for an Indonesia visa have also become very frequent because of the inflow of foreigners, which also increases the potential of fake visa agents.
You should be cautious about choosing the right agency. There are stories of incorrect information, inflated processing fees, and people being misled on visa procedures by unscrupulous agents.
As such, we have gathered 5 tips on how to find the best visa agent in Indonesia to help you fulfill your inquiry without hassle.
1. Do some research about the agency/company
Although there are many visa consultants available in Indonesia, it is not easy to choose one that is reliable and not misleading. If you happen to choose a crooked visa agent, it can turn your entire visa process into a nightmare.
With the use of the internet, you should be able to check the visa consultant company’s website and the feedback section. You can also check their other social media pages, especially in the review or testimonial section to give you an idea about their performance and how clients have rated them.
2. Check if the agent is registered or not
Please be noted that all visa agents in Indonesia are required to register themselves according to the Indonesian Law. Make sure you always opt for a visa consultant that is not only registered but also reputable in the country.
3. Ask if the agent is qualified or not
It is recommended to check the agent’s experience in handling relevant visas and how long they have been in the industry. With extensive experience, they are more knowledgeable and are familiar with the usual issues which applicants encounter, thus they are much prepared to deal with complex situations.
More often, a reputable visa agent with extensive experience and knowledge will have an informational website, customer testimonials and valid contact information. A trustworthy visa agent will get you further as they are always ready to deal with complex situations.
4. Transparent with the fees
A trusted visa agent must have affordable and transparent fixed rates for different services. Your agent should be able to elaborate on their fee structure.
5. Avoid visa agent that offer job guarantee in Indonesia
As mentioned earlier, only registered visa consultant companies are eligible to provide professional advice. If the agent or someone advising you start painting a utopic picture of your future in Indonesia to get a job, this is a red flag that something is not right. Avoid visa consultants who are claiming to be able to provide you with job and placement in Indonesia. Chances are, these tempting job offers are mostly fake and are falsified to lure foreigners and gain profits.
