What e-Visa am I applying for and how long is it valid for?

You are applying for a VISIT VISA – type BUSINESS VISA with the code B211A. SInce you are applying from outside of Indonesia it’s often also called OFFSHORE Business Visa (not its official name), while any visa now issued while visitors are already in Indonesia are called ONSHORE Visas.

It’s a Single entry e-VISA for the purpose of

  • Humanitarian activities
  • Volunteering
  • Family reunion
  • Business or Investment visit
  • attending trainings, seminars, workshops, exhibitions or meetings 

Even though the visa is 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 an income.

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

After the e-Visa is issued, you need to arrive in Indonesia latest within 90 days. Otherwise it will be void. The initial visa is valid for 60 days (count the days including your day of arrival and day of departure).

EXTENSION:

This Visa can be extended four times for 30 days each while you remain here on the island. The you can purchase the extensions also here on Bali.com soon. The expected cost per extension will be around IDR 1,000,000.

There is another VISIT VISA which is called SOCIAL VISA (Visa Budaya), which is very common and very similar, but cannot be issued these days.

  • The Quarantine  and Repatriation Packages can cost you between USD600 and USD 1000 – with accommodation for 4 nights (previously 7 nights), 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 control. So here are two main risks when 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, even if they have a valid visa. Also, the immigration can deny your application, without giving any reasons, this happens extremely rarely, but it is heard of. 

Therefore please check our terms & conditions before you apply:

  1. Once the visa application is in process, it cannot be cancelled, and no refund of the fee can be granted (no refund provided).
  2. Only once you completed the payment, we can start to process of 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 for your application or entry into the country or any immidiate 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.
  6. We are not responsible for the failed extension process if the applicant does not send us an email notification latest 10 days upon arrival in Indonesia.

Can I visit Bali during the pandemic?

In short: Yes, but you need a Visit Visa. Foreigners (from most countries) can still visit Indonesia. A mandatory 10x24 hours quarantine is set for fully vaccinated travelers (effective 3rd Dec, due to the new variant Omicron). You can arrive and do quarantine in Jakarta (JKT). 19 nationalities can arrive and also do quarantine in Bali (DPS), but flights are still difficult to get, because not many airlines decided to offer flights to Bali. We advise travelers to fly to Jakarta first and do quarantine there.

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 for example they choose to have a staycation, work remotely or are digital nomads. Some follow up on doing their business arrangements for 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.

If you are not a national of these countries you CANNOT fly directly to Bali, and must enter Indonesia via Jakarta AND ALSO do the quarantine in Jakarta - even if you hold a KITAS or KITAP. Technically, other entry points for foreigners beside Bali and Jakarta are Batam (BTH) Batam and Tanjung Pinang (TNJ). But that would not be practical for travelers coming to Bali.

Can I catch a direct flight to Bali?

  • Yes - maybe, there are airlines directly flying to Bali but not many airlines are offering this destination yet. 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? Simply get a ticket to Jakarta (which could be substantially cheaper than Bali) and then follow the quarantine there in one of the appointed 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.
  • Will other countries be added to the list and when? The number of selected countries will probably change. We would not suggest to "build on hope" that your country might get included at some point when making your travel plans. 

Is there a mandatory Quarantine?

  • Yes, the mandatory quarantine for every traveler who enters Indonesia is now increased to 10x24 hours for travelers who are fully vaccinated. 
  • Where do I have to do the quarantine? If you manage to book a flight directly to Bali and are a national of the above mentioned countries, you can do the quarantine also now in Bali.
  • In Bali, quarantine can be done in a selection of appointed hotels in Ubud, Nusa Dua, Sanur, and Kuta (list of quarantine hotels in Bali)

  • 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 consider to travel to Bali 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.

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, to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. Expect at times shorter operational hours on restaurants and attractions, also health protocols enforcement
