Immigration and visas:
Visa requirements are different for various countries. Please search the internet for the closest Indonesian consulate for the visa requirements for your country of origin. Many countries (including the US) have free visa entry into Indonesia for a 30 day stay. Your 30 day Indonesian Tourist Visa will be given to you at immigration once you've arrived in Bali. If you are planning to stay longer than 30 days, you may purchase a tourist visa upon entering Bali at the airport for $35. This only means you are eligible for an extension. If you do not purchase this extension option at the airport, then you may not extend your visa beyond 30 days. If you choose to extend, you must do so in Denpasar. This is possible, yet it is an all-day process and can only be done during off-days.
You may also acquire the 60 day visa at an embassy an Indonesian embassy in your country. This needs to be done prior to your travel. A third option for staying over 30 days is to take a quick flight to Singapore or another country nearby that will reset your visa for another automatic 30 days. If you are flying Delta Airlines and planning to stay over 30 days we recommend you purchase a flight or apply for a 60day visa pre-travel, as Delta has been known to not allow those staying longer than 30 days without a visa on the flight. Please email Jessi with any questions about visas.
No inoculations are required to enter Bali but it is always best to talk to your doctor and check out the Center for Disease Control website for information about recommended vaccinations.
