Shanghai tourists can get Indonesia visa on plane

SHANGHAI travelers going to Indonesia can apply for visa aboard their planes to Jakarta starting tomorrow, Indonesian immigration authority and Garuda Airlines announced today.
Immigration officers will check Shanghai travelers' passports and issue them visas aboard a Garuda flight. For the first time in-flight visa service will be provided to Chinese tourists who need to pay US$25 for a 30-day visa at the Visa Onboard Counter in the Pudong International Airport after check-in.
Immigration officers will then use a mobile card reader to scan the visa voucher and stamp "Visa on Arrival" on the passport and a card, with which travelers can have a quick pass through the customs and avoid long queues at the immigration counters, according to Garuda.
"The Tourism Administration of Indonesia has been making every effort to attract more Chinese tourists. We expect the target of '1 Millionth Chinese Visitor to Indonesia' can be achieved in 2013," said Imron Cotan, Indonesian ambassador to China.
