Effective from 26 January 2011, Indonesian Immigration Authority under Ministry of Law and Human Rights is scheduled to launch the e-passport. The government sets the amount of e-passport launched to be 10,000 units along the year of 2011. The launch of newly implemented e-passport is available only in three immigration offices, those are: Immigration Office Class I Jakarta Barat (West Jakarta), Immigration Office Class I Special Soekarno-Hatta, and Immigration Office Class I Jakarta Pusat (Central Jakarta). The electronic passports are, like regular passports, available in 2 versions, namely the 24-page version and the 48-page version. The biometric chips are embedded inside the back cover of the passports. It was reported that during 2011, approximately 12,000 Indonesian citizens have gained e-passport and starting from 25 January 2012 Indonesian Immigration Authority launched 'autogate' (automatic gates that automatically read the e-passport) in Soekarno Hatta International Airport, which reduced the waiting time for e-passport holders, since they are no longer needed to be checked manually at the immigration desk. The service is available both for arriving and departing passengers . The government plans to apply the 'autogate' in airports throughout the country.
Regular passports (Non e-passports)
Issued by Directorate General of Immigration, Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. It can be obtained at any immigration office in Indonesia and at Indonesian embassies and consulates. The passport contains either 24 or 48 pages and is valid for 5 years. The holder of regular passports now can use special autogate just like e-passport holders.
Issued by Ministry of Foreign Affairs for diplomatic missions.
Issued by Ministry of Foreign Affairs for public servants on official travel.
Hajj passports (obsolete)
The Ministry of Religious Affairs formerly issued hajj passports for the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca under Article 29(1)(d) and Article 33 of the Immigration Act of 1992. However, new government regulations in 2009 deleted the relevant portions of the legislation. As of Hajj 2009, all hajj pilgrims from Indonesia use ordinary passports. The use of ordinary passports is a requirement of the Saudi Arabian government.
The passports contain a note from the issuing state that is addressed to the authorities of all other states, identifying the bearer as a citizen of that state and requesting that he or she be allowed to pass and be treated according to international norms. The note inside Indonesian passports states:
Pemerintah Republik Indonesia memohon kepada semua pihak yang berkepentingan untuk mengizinkan kepada pemegang paspor ini berlalu secara leluasa dan memberikan bantuan dan perlindungan kepadanya.
Paspor ini berlaku untuk seluruh dunia
The Government of the Republic of Indonesia requests to all whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and afford him/her such assistance and protection.
This passport is valid for all parts of the world
In case of diplomatic and service passports, those are not formally valid for visits to Israel and Taiwan, since there are no formal diplomatic ties with those countries, requiring diplomats and servicemens to use regular passports.
Latest Indonesian passports are bilingual; Indonesian and English.
