After Singapore

I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more

KBRI Singapura (Indonesia Embassy in Singapore)

The Indonesia Embassy in Singapore is located amidst the executive landed-house complex in Chatsworth Rd, just near the shopping heaven Orchard Rd. There is no direct bus stopping in front of the Embassy building. You need to walk around 500 meters from the bus stop (you can take bus #111 from Queenstown MRT).

The office opens at normal working hours, observing both Singapore and Indonesian public holidays. One interesting thing is during the 2008 Vesak Day, it differs by one day between Singapore and Indonesia. Therefore, the Embassy closed for two days. How lucky.
For foreigners, there is usual visa services, and for Indonesian they can also process immigration matters such as passport extension or address change.
Yearly, the Embassy closed at least twice for the Indonesia’s Independence Day. The formal ceremony falls right on the 17th of August, and the next week would be the “party” for Indonesian workers working in Singapore. The second one is called “Pesta Rakyat” or (people’s party), inviting all Indonesians to come in. When I said “all”, means really a lot. Last time it was reported 9,000 Indonesians, mostly works as housemaid visited the Embassy for party. During the party, there will be an ID check. Only Indonesians can come in.
KBRI Singapura is located at N° 7 Chatsworth Rd, Singapore 249761, Republic of Singapore.
