Transportation between Vanimo and Jayapura is a bit complicated and at the moment only by land, but vehicles are not allowed to cross the border. From Vanimo to the border are frequent buses for 10 Kina. The border is open from 9 am to 4 pm PNG time, most nationalities can get a free 30 day Indonesian visa on arrival (not extendable). No changing money on the PNG side, at the nearby Skouw market you will find some stalls changing (not the best rate), outside the market you can find cars to go to Jayapura, about 2 hours, first quoted price was 600000 Indonesian Rupees (for the car, usually for up to 7 passengers), quite a bit less, but only with little luggage, take a Ojek (motorcycle taxi) to Koya, the next village about 40 km, first quoted price was 100000 Indonesian Rupees, then Bemo / shared taxi to Yotefa basar, 12000 Indonesian Rupees, then one to Entrop terminal, then Jayapura, each 5000.
