How much do we need to bring to visit Bali?

To visit Bali, you’ll need to consider several factors, including entry requirements, expenses, and essential documents. Here’s a concise guide to help you plan your trip:

  1. Entry Requirements:
    • Entry Fee: Starting January 1, 2024, all visitors to Bali must pay an entry fee of USD 10 (approximately IDR 150,000). This fee is collected directly at the airport or seaport upon arrival.
    • Tourism Tax: Effective February 14, 2024, non-Indonesian nationals arriving in Bali are subject to a new tourism tax. This tax applies to all visitors except those holding ASEAN nationality.
    • Visa-on-Arrival (VoA): Non-Indonesian nationals who do not qualify for visa-free entry need to obtain a VoA upon arrival. The VoA can be purchased at a separate counter at the airport or obtained online in advance through the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights website. Tourists can stay in Bali for up to 30 days with a Bali Visa on Arrival, which can be extended once for an additional 30-day period.
  2. Required Documents for Entering Bali:
    • Valid Passport (with at least 6 months validity).
    • Proof of full vaccination (as per Covid-19 entry requirements).
    • Return air ticket or a pass to continue the trip to another country.
    • Proof of payment of PNBP Visa on Arrival (if applying for a Visa on Arrival for leisure purposes).
  3. Other Tips:
    • Health and Safety: Ensure you have health insurance and follow any Covid-19 guidelines in place.
    • Currency: Bring some cash (Indonesian Rupiah) or credit cards for convenience.
    • Accommodation: Book your stay for at least the first few nights in Bali.
    • Learn Basic Phrases: Learning a few Balinese or Indonesian phrases can be helpful, especially if you plan to explore rural areas.
