So, you’ve got your sights set on Bali, huh? Excellent choice!

This Indonesian gem is bursting with beautiful beaches, lush rice terraces, and a culture that’s as vibrant as its sunsets. But before you can sip on fresh coconut water under a palm tree, there’s one small but crucial detail you need to handle: getting your visa. We’ve got your back with this straightforward guide to make your Bali visa process as smooth as a Balinese massage.

Here's how it works

Step 1: Know Your Visa Options

First things first, let’s figure out which visa suits your travel plans best:

Visa on Arrival (VOA): This one’s a favorite for many travelers. It lets you stay for up to 30 days. The best part? It’s extendable for another 30 days if you’re not ready to leave paradise just yet.

Tourist Visa (B211A): Planning to stay longer than 60 days? This one’s for you. It’s valid for 60 days and can be extended up to 4 times (each extension is 30 days).

Social-Cultural Visa (B211B): Perfect if you’re visiting friends, family, or engaging in social-cultural activities. Same extension rules apply as the B211A.


Step 2: Gather Your Documents

Now, let’s get those documents in order:

Passport: Ensure it’s valid for at least six months from your entry date.

Return Ticket: Proof of your plan to leave Bali at the end of your stay.

Visa Application Form: Available online or at the Indonesian embassy/consulate.

Passport-Sized Photos: Always good to have a few on hand.

Proof of Funds: Evidence that you can support yourself financially during your stay.

Step 3: Applying for Your Visa

Visa on Arrival:

  • Arrive at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.
  • Head to the Visa on Arrival counter if you need a VOA.
  • Pay the fee (around $35 USD for VOA).
  • Get your passport stamped, and you’re all set!

Online Application Option:

Want to avoid long queues at the airport? You can also apply for your Visa on Arrival online before your trip. Here’s how:

  • Visit the official Indonesian e-Visa website or click here

  • Fill out the online application form.
  • Upload the necessary documents.
  • Pay the visa fee online.
  • Receive your e-Visa via email and print it out before your flight.


Step 4: Extensions (if needed)

Falling in love with Bali and need more time? Here’s how to extend your stay:

Visa on Arrival: Go to the immigration office in Bali before your 30 days are up. Fill out the extension form, pay the fee, and get an additional 30 days.

Tourist/Social-Cultural Visa: Head to the immigration office for each extension. You can extend up to four times if you’re staying the full six months.

Step 5: Enjoy Bali!

Now that the nitty-gritty is out of the way, it’s time to let loose and enjoy all that Bali has to offer. From the bustling markets of Ubud to the serene beaches of Uluwatu, there’s something for everyone. Don’t forget to explore the hidden gems, indulge in some delicious local cuisine, and make the most of your Balinese adventure.

Final Tips

  • Be Polite and Patient: Sometimes immigration can be a bit slow. A friendly attitude goes a long way.
  • Keep Copies: Always have copies of your passport and visa with you.
  • Ask for Help: If you’re ever in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask locals or fellow travelers. Bali is known for its welcoming and helpful people.

Now, pack your bags, grab your sunnies, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Bali is waiting for you!
