For those ready to go on a well-deserved holiday to Bali should know if they need an Indonesia visa. For most nationalities this can be arranged upon arrival at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar. The single-entry tourist visa is valid for up to 30 days though.
The following countries can arrange a single-entry tourist visa upon arrival at the visa booth; Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, China, Cyprus, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Laos, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Maldives, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Surinam, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan Territory, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the USA.
Before you receive this single-entry Indonesia visa your passport should be valid for at least another 6 months and you have correctly filled out the embarkation/disembarkation card upon arrival. It cost US $25 for a 30-day single entry visa and US$10 for a 7-day visa.
Nationals who carry this permit are not allowed to extend or convert this visa. Every day that you stay longer until 60 days will cost USD $20 and after these 60 days it will cost 25.000.000 rupiah or a 5 years prison sentence. If you want to stay longer your best option is to buy a return ticket to Singapore.
You then go through the same procedure of a single-entry tourist visa upon arrival at Ngurah Rai International Airport.
There are even nationalities who don’t need an Indonesia visa at all. They’ll receive a visa free permit. Here is a small list of those countries; Nationals from Chile, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Peru, Macao, Morocco, Brunei, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam don’t need the 30-day visa for staying in Bali. They are issued a maximum 30-day visa free permit.
This visa is also not extendable or convertible into another form of Indonesia visa. For this visa free permit count the same rules as for those holding a single-entry visa. Every day that you stay longer until 60 days will cost USD $20 and after these 60 days it will cost 25.000.000 rupiah or a 5 years prison sentence.
When you have come at the end of your holiday on Bali the airport charges tax of 150.000 Indonesian rupiah. When you take a domestic flight you’ll pay 30.000 Indonesian rupiah.
