• Total spending by Visa Card holders increased 20% in 2005 as compared to 2004, totaling Rp. 5.6 trillion (approximately US$608.7 million). This spending increase is all the more significant given that total foreign to Indonesia for the same periods decreased by 6% in the aftermath of the "Boxing Day" tsunami, another Bali terrorist attack and fears over bird flu.

• In 2005, a total of Rp. 138 billion (approximately US$ 15 million) was spent on women's clothing and Rp. 132 million (approximately US 14.3 million) on men's clothing by foreign visitors using a Visa Card.

• Substantial growth in spending was seen in the purchases of women's accessories and jewelry which increased 160%, while the sale of leather products and luggage increased 102%.

• 852,000 Visa Card transactions were recorded at Indonesian hotels with a value of US$198 million.

• 433,000 Visa Card transactions were made at Indonesian restaurants incurring charges of US$36 million.

• The biggest spenders using Visa Cards came from Australia (US$98.9 million), the U.S. (US$89.1 million) and Japan (US$77.7 million).

• Visa Card purchases by foreign visitors were highest in Bali (US$261 million), followed by Jakarta (US$186 million) and Batam (US$12 million).

• Visa's tracking of "big spenders" showed that visitors who used their cards for the highest level of purchasing hailed from Hong Kong, followed by Russia and the U.K..

• The value of an average transaction increased from Rp. 1.2 million in 2004 to Rp. 1.3 million (US$141) in 2005.
