GARUDA, Indonesia’s national carrier, will introduce an ‘Immigration on-Board’ service on the new Amsterdam – Dubai – Jakarta route starting 2 June 2010. This initiative will allow passengers entering Indonesia to have their travel documents processed on-board, eliminating the need to queue at immigration counters upon arrival. Customers will be able to purchase ‘Visa on Arrival’ vouchers available at Garuda Indonesia check-in counters at both airports. During the flight, immigration officers on the aircraft will conduct passport checks and issue ‘Visa on Arrival’ and a card that must be returned to ground immigration officers before exiting the airport. First introduced on the Tokyo – Denpasar – Jakarta route in February 2010, it was very well received by passengers. With the start of ‘Immigration on-Board’, foreign travellers can save up to two hours during peak times. www.garuda-indonesia.com
