This blog is only concerned about holidays to Bali and we do not cover the requirements of other entry points in Indonesia.
From my last visit to Bali ( 6/10/2016 ) i can confirm that the requirement for a Visa on Arrival for Australians to Bali has been removed. This applies to tourism purposes only, lasts for 30 days and there is no extension possible.
Your current passport is required and will be date stamped on arrival.
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 accommodation address is required.
There are no compulsory vaccinations.
Nationals of ALL countries planning to stay for more than 30 days in Indonesia also have to apply for the appropriate visa type (tourist, business, social-cultural, etc.) at an overseas Indonesian Consulate or Foreign Mission before departing for Indonesia.
When you leave Bali to come home there was a exit tax of Indonesian 200,000 Rupiah. The exit tax no longer applies as it is included in your air fare.
When you get to Bali 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 air conditioned transport is needed. Phone or email our adopted drivers for wheels.
