Border Crossings

There are five possible land crossings into Indonesia.

  • Regular buses between Pontianak (Kalimantan) and Kuching (Sarawak, eastern Malaysia) pass through the border post at Entikong. You can get a visa on arrival on this route.
  • Cross between Lubok Antu (Sarawak) and Badau (West Kalimantan), provided you have a visa in advance.
  • Cross between Biawak (Sarawak), and PLBN Aruk (West Kalimantan), provided you have a visa in advance.
  • The border crossing between West and East Timor (Timor-Leste) is open. Get a Timor-Leste visa in Kupang; a visa is required when travelling from East to West Timor.
  • The border from Jayapura or Sentani in Indonesia to Vanimo in Papua New Guinea can be crossed, depending on the current political situation. A visa is required if travelling into Indonesia.
