    Don't know what's taken them so long to figure this out. I make lots of leisure trips, but choose Thailand as one of my primary places, along with a few other countries in SEA which have no visa requirements/fees. I make very few trips to Cambodia, Vietnam, and Indonesia, simply because of their visa policies. Make it easy for me to enter your country, and you'll make way more money via tourist dollars. As for whether it's actually being implemented, I have no idea.

    When in doubt try the websites of (a) Indonesia consulate and/or (b) the US Department of State...

    To get on the plane, I think IATA's website, or any airline that offers for free the TIMATICweb access is the place to check. That only gets you to the airside of the destination country's airport of arrival. For official information, the country's Embassy in the US; just as @NYCUA1K said !
