You can get a 60 day visa in your home country (you have up to 3 months from date of application to enter Indonesia where you will then get your 60 day stamp) or at one of the countries close to Indonesia like Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Singapore. I have received 60 day visas from both Singapore and Penang in 2006 without any problems. Usually takes about 3 days and you will need a passport that has at least 12 months left on it, two passport photos, photocopy of the first page of your passport and money to pay for the 60 day visa.
