Need to extend your B211A Visa that you received through our service? 

Kindly check our FAQ section below. It is important you are aware of all the steps and requirements to ensure a smooth extension process and to avoid delays and potential “overstay-penalties”, which cost IDR 1,000,000 per day.

B211A EXTENSION FAQ

When do I need to notify you that I need to extend?

It is strongly recommended that you notify us 2 weeks before your current visa expires.

How long does it take to process the extension?

The STANDARD Service takes up to 14 business days AFTER we have received the payment and submitted the extension application to the immigration officials.

The EXPRESS Service takes up to 5 business days AFTER we have received the payment and submitted the extension application to the immigration officials.

Business hours are Monday – Friday from 9.00am – 5.00pm (closed on Indonesian Public Holidays).

Indonesian Immigration office does not work during the weekends, and there could be delays due to unforeseen circumstances (changing of regulations, immigration online system slowing down). 

Do I need to submit my passport?

YES!

We will ask you to submit your passport and depending on the service you will book, (Standard or Express) you won’t have access to your passport until it is returned to you.

Do I have to be present at the Immigration Office?

YES!

Showing up in person:

You have to go to the appointed Immigration Office (either in Denpasar or Jimbaran) to take your picture and scan your fingerprint once your visa extension application has been approved by the Immigration Office.

The immigration department will assign an appointment for you sometime after we submitted the extension request (usually within 2 business days for the express service and within 3 -10 business days for the standard service). You need to be sure you are available and can follow the appointment request.

Important dress code – Smart Casual:

Men: Collar / polo shirt (or decent and clean T-Shirt) and long pants, proper shoes.

Women: Dress, long pants, blouse, (or decent and clean T-Shirt)

No short, sleeveless shirts and tank tops, flip-flops, beach wear, yoga pants, ripped clothes.

Can I travel within Indonesia, while my passport is with the immigration department

YES!

You can travel within Indonesia if you show your official ID card (must be valid of course). It is helpful to carry a passport copy with you, just in case, and if needed explain, that the passport is submitted for Visa Extension. 

When should I use the Express Service?

Because STANDARD Service takes up to 14 business days and at times there could be delays, it’s advisable to get the Express service if you need access to your passport much more quickly.

Also, you will need to come personally to the immigration office, and it is uncertain when the immigration department will ask you to come for the appointment with a short notice. So technically, for the Standard Service, you could be called to come to the Immigration Office anytime over the course of 14 business days. So, if you want to visit places further away in Bali or go to the neighbouring islands it will be difficult for you to travel back to “the south” in time to show up personally.

What do I need to apply for an extension of my current Visa?

You must have received your first e-visa with us, because the extension is directly linked to that visa and the sponsorship regulations.

Your passport should be still valid for 12 months.

Check your expiry date of your current visa and make sure that latest 2 weeks prior to its expiry, you email us at visa@bali.com so we can process the booking and payment details.

Once we have received payment, we will hand in your application to the immigration office for your visa extension.

Make sure that you have an active WhatsApp number.

How long is the extension valid?

With the updated regulations your B211A Visa can be extended up to 2 times,  60 days each. 

Maximum stay with for a B211A is 180 days. If you wish to stay longer you need to apply for another separate B211A ONSHORE Visa.
It is uncertain how many onshore visas a traveller can apply for in a row without needing to leave the country – for now at least one.

What happens if I am late to apply for the extension?

The application needs to be submitted to the immigration BEFORE your visa “runs out”. Otherwise you are overstaying

Every day you are overstaying the immigration will charge a IDR 1,000,000 penalty fee, which you would have to pay when picking up the passport after the extension process is completed.

If for some reason you did not inform us 2 weeks before the visa runs out BUT your Visa is still valid a few days, we would need to speed up the application process including receiving the payment. We will do our best to help you out and make it fast, but we cannot promise that we can submit your application in time, means while your visa is still valid. We might have to charge you an extra IDR 400,000 if time is extremely short. We will try to avoid this extra fee.

How long it takes us to submit the application depends on… 

  • how long it takes you to submit the application form
  • how long it takes to complete the payment and the money to arrive
  • when you will submit your passport
  • generally whether there are weekends or public holidays that we need to consider

We hope we have clarified all the steps. For further assistance, feel free to send us an email on visa@bali.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
