There is more than one type of Visa for Indonesia but all we are concerned about on this Blog is about the basics that you need to know – to get a Bali Tourist Visa for Australian’s and enter Bali Indonesia. The passport and visa requirements also apply to cruise ship visitors. Visitors from other country’s must check their own entry requirements.

Entry requirements for Bali Indonesia
Passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 (six) months as from the date of entry into Indonesia. A friend of ours was recently refused permission to board his Aeroplane to Denpasar because his passport expiry date came under the 6 month expiry between booking and boarding. There is no compensation for a mistake like this.
Onward or return tickets are compulsory.
Your hotel or accomodation address is required.
And a VOR ( Visa On Arrival)
* A Tourist visa is required ( called Visa On Arrival ) and as Australians you purchase this as you go through to ( but Just before ) the Immigration check out at Denpasar airport. This lasts for 30 days and costs US $25.00 which you can pay in Aus dollars, remember to get this before you stand in line at immigration or you will be sent back to get it. I do not know at what age this kicks in, if u know pls advise via the comment box.
*There are no compulsory vaccinations.
*To get your VOA visitors to Bali enter through the following: Air – Bali Ngurah Rai Airport (Denpasar) Sea – Benoa and Padang seaports.
* When you leave Bali to come home there is a exit tax of Indonesian 150,000 Rupiah and to be paid in Rupiah. This is about Aus $20.00. We put this aside in our hotel safe with our passport. All passengers pay this including children.
* When you get there and if your hotel is not picking you up you will need transport, particularly groups and or families. Bali is 8 degrees south of the equator and can get hot and sweaty which means airconditioned transport is needed. Phone our adopted drivers for wheels.
