What e-Visa am I applying for and what am I allowed to do with it?

You are applying for a VISIT VISA - type BUSINESS VISA with the code B211A. If you are applying from outside of Indonesia you have to apply for an OFFSHORE Visit Visa (not its official name); if you are already in Bali, you will apply for an Onshore visa. 

The Visit Visa (onshore or offshore, all the same) is a Single entry e-VISA for the purpose of

  • Humanitarian activities
  • Volunteering
  • Family reunion
  • Business or Investment visit, sourcing, business research
  • attending trainings, seminars, workshops, exhibitions or meetings
  • Just visit Indonesia without a specific purpose (newly expanded due to the covid pandemic)  

Even though the visa is technically called a business visa, it’s NOT A WORK PERMIT and does not entitle you to take or have a job in Indonesia, that pays you a salary or provides any income.

You can however have business meetings, do networking, explore investment opportunities, sourcing products...and of course, chill at the pool or beach.

There is another VISIT VISA which is called SOCIAL VISA (Visa Budaya), which was very commonly used before the pandemic, but cannot be issued these days, and became for the moment obsolete.

How long is the Visa valid and can it be extended?

 

Offshore Visa: The initial visa is valid for 60 days (count the days including your day of arrival and day of departure).

Onshore, the initial Visa is valid for 30 days.

 

EXTENSIONS:

This Visit Visa can be extended four times for 30 days each. For the extension you have to be in Bali and need to hand in the passport 2 weeks before the current visa expires.  Only if you got the visa through us, you can also book the extensions with us. 

More information about the visa extension

What happens if I want to stay longer after using all extensions?

For now, and as long as Indonesia does not change the regulations meanwhile, you can apply for an ONSHORE VISIT VISA without having to leave the country. Same process, but remember the initial onshore visa is valid 30 days, and not 60. 

Also this onshore visa can be extended 4 x 30 days, so you get another 150days in total.

  • The Quarantine  and Repatriation Packages can cost you between USD 100 and 200 per night of the mandatory quarantine. Included: meals, 2 PCR tests, airport transfer to hotel. If you travel with a companion and share a room, the cost for the package gets cheaper per person (double occupancy)

  • Travel Insurance that can cover up to USD 100,000 covid related medical costs, in case you get covid while in Indonesia and need to be treated
What else do I need to know beforehand? What could go wrong? What are your terms and conditions?

We live in uncertain times, and rules and regulations can change unfortunately quickly, which is beyond our control.

There are two main risks to consider, before applying for a visa and planning your trip to Bali.

The government could technically change the regulations any day, and deny the arrival of any applicant coming to Indonesia, such as putting your nationality  onto the list of banned countries. This means, even if at this point you do have already a valid visa and even a flight etc, you cannot come to Indonesia and have to reschedule. 

Also, this happens very very rarely but it can happen: the immigration can deny your application, without giving any reasons. 

 

Therefore please check our terms & conditions before you apply:

  1. Once the visa application is in process, it cannot be cancelled, and no refund can be granted (no refund provided).
  2. Only once we have received the payment, we can start to process your visa application with the immigration officials. 
  3. The immigration has the right to decline your application without giving any reason. In such as case no refund can be given.
  4. We adhere to Indonesian immigration rules and regulations. We are not responsible if there is any sudden changes published by the immigration, which may cause a delay or rejection of your application or entry into the country or any immediate changes (no refund policy).
  5. In case of any delay in the process, such as but not limited to: closure of immigration office, problems with the technology, public holidays, etc,  Bali.com is not responsible for any delays occurring.

*IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION

Updated Bali Travel Requirements & Restrictions

Can I visit Bali during the pandemic?

In short: Yes, but you need a Visit Visa. Foreigners can still visit Indonesia (from most countries, see banned list of countries below). A mandatory 7x24 hours quarantine is set for fully vaccinated travellers

Does it make sense to come to Bali under these conditions?

Depends. Because of course you have to consider the additional cost with visa and quarantine, that can be USD 1000 or more. And if you plan to come for 2 or 3 weeks, then the additional nights quarantine is a lot of time to spend in a hotel room.

Who is visiting Bali now?

Most foreign visitors that choose to travel now to Bali, stay a month or longer (visit visa is valid for 60 days and can be extended up to 180 days). Travelers come, because they might choose to have a staycation, work remotely or are digital nomads. Some follow up on doing their business arrangements, meeting clients and partners, or look for products to export and be manufactured. The normal holiday makers that come for 2-3 weeks are usually not yet ready to take all the hurdles and face the extra costs - which is ver understandable.


Updated Travel Regulations for Bali (Indonesia)

Are any countries currently "red-listed" and banned from entering Indonesia?

The list of "red countries" that were banned from entering Indonesia and from applying for a Visa due to Covid, has been cleared by the Indonesian government effective Jan 12th.

  3. Israel

  7. North Korea
  8. Somalia

Who can arrive DIRECTLY in Bali and follow quarantine in Bali? 

According to the latest update by the government, NATIONALS with following PASSPORTS are allowed to take flights directly to Bali. All other nationals have to arrive in Jakarta and follow quarantine there.

1. Bahrain 8. Kuwait 15. Saudi Arabia
2. China 9. Norway 16. Spain
3. Hungary 10. New Zealand 17. Sweden
4. India 11.Poland 18. UAE
5. Italy 12. Portugal  
6. Japan 13. Qatar -
7. Liechtenstein 14. South Korea -

Technically, other entry points for foreigners beside Bali and Jakarta are Batam (BTH) Batam, Surabaya (SBY) and Tanjung Pinang (TNJ). But that would not be practical for travellers coming to Bali.

Can I actually get a direct flight to Bali?

Very uncertain;  if you are a national of the above mentioned countries you are technically allowed to arrive directly in Bali. BUT airlines are very reluctant to offer flights to Bali (DPS). They have difficulties to get enough passengers. Simply check with flight ticket sites of your choice, but be aware that airlines often cancel direct flights to Bali 2 weeks before departure, if they did not get enough bookings.

I am NOT one of the nationals above, what is the best way to come to Bali?

In any case, we suggest these days to simply get a ticket to Jakarta (which could be substantially cheaper than Bali) and then follow the quarantine in Jakarta in one of the appointed quarantine hotels. When the quarantine is completed you can take a DOMESTIC flight from Jakarta to Bali on the same day with one of the smaller airlines such as Citilink, Batik Air, Air Asia etc. Ticket price one way 50-150USD.

  • Can I transit in Jakarta and then do quarantine in Bali? No.

Is there Mandatory Quarantine?

Updates quarantine regulations can be found HERE

Do I need to be fully vaccinated to come to Bali, Indonesia?

YES! You need to show a COVID-19 vaccine card/certificate (printed/digital) that has been done minimum 14 days before departure date, written in English. 

Can Children get a visa and travel with parents?

Generally Yes. They would also need a visa. Children above 12 years of age need to be fully vaccinated. Below 12 years of age they need to have a negative PCR test like the adults upon arrival, and the accompanying adult must be a family member. However, just make sure to double check with the airlines of your choice, since they have their own regulations about minors at times.

What else do I need  to travel to Bali or Indonesia during the Pandemic?

  • Upon arrival, visitors will get the first of two PCR tests at the airport (will be paid by the hotel). It could be that you have to wait for the test result at the airport, which could unfortunately take up to two hours. Second PCR will be done in the hotel the day before check-out. 
  • Proof of medical Travel insurance with a Covid medical coverage of minimum USD 100,000. In the event where RT-PCR test upon arrival showed a positive result, medical treatments on a isolation/health facilities based on the symptoms level will have to be taken by foreign citizens at their own expense
  • Negative Covid-19 PCR taken maximum 72 hours before departure at origin country.
  • Proof of booking and payment for mandatory quarantine accommodation upon arrival - will be provided by the hotel after you have completed your quarantine / repatriation package booking
  • Register to PeduliLindungi App, proceed to fill your travel information on International e-HAC (Indonesia electronic health alert card app).

How is the situation in Bali?

  • The situation is overall well under control. The number of vaccinated citizens is above 80%. The government still applies a cautious approach and keeps Micro-Scale Social Restrictions (PPKM Regulations) in place which are regularly updated, to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. Expect at times shorter operational hours on restaurants and attractions, also health protocols enforcement
  • Wearing masks in Public is mandatory
  • You need the PeduliLindungi App when visiting some venues and stores.
