Hi guys, I've just searched for 'visa on arrival' with 'work' and trawled through loads of thread on the forum looking for the answer to this and can't find it. I have, however, worked out that there are a LOT of questions about Visa On Arrival so I'm sorry to add another one to the throng! however I will be bringing $25 US exact money and following the directions given on the forum about how quickest/ easiest/ cheapest to get the visa!! so the searches so far have been useful from that perspective!
However my question is a different one. I have the opportunity of 2 weeks' work (I know, a very short term thing) in Indonesia for something in which I have a very specific area of expertise. It has been suggested to me that I can just get a VOA visa (I am British and have a full British passport with more than 6 months to run and plenty of blank pages) to cover this. The Indonesian UK website doesn't have very much information. The USA website says that it is OK to use the VOA visa not only for tourist purposes or private visits but also for 'temporary business' purposes, which I think fits me. However I have absolutely NO desire to fall foul of any immigration problems!
So since there are some very knowledgeable people on here, I thought I'd ask - is it OK to work (for a very short period, well within the 30 days) via a VOA visa?? I would be able to evidence my financial status and I would, of course, have the return flight booked too so the other visa requirements I think are fine. I would also not be expecting to want or need to extend the visa - this is literally a one-off occurrence of me getting a short-term piece of work.
All help gratefully received!
