Bali’s visa on arrival (VOA) explained

By 6th May 2014 November 21st, 2018 No Comments

It is not uncommon that we receive questions regarding visa’s on arrival (also known as VOA) in Bali, so here is a quick guide that should cover all you need to know.

64 countries are eligible for VOA

Visa on arrival is simply a tourist visa, that grants you access to Bali for 30 days. 64 countries are eligible to a visa on arrival when visiting Bali, whilst a few countries, like Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, don’t need a visa at all (see the lists of countries below). If your country isn’t among the countries on the lists you need to contact your local Indonesian embassy in order to get a visa.

Your visa is issued at Bali’s international airport upon arrival

You get the visa upon arrival at Bali’s Denpasar airport before you walk through the immigration. There is no application needed, all you have to do is to bring the US$ 35 the visa will cost you, your passport and queue up at one of the visa counters. You can only pay with cash at the visa counters, euro’s and Indonesian rupiahs are accepted as well as US$. It is possible to withdraw cash inside the airport, but the withdrawal line can get long, so it is recommended to bring some cash.

The visa lasts for 30 days and can be extended once

The visa on arrival will run out after 30 days, but if you want to stay longer you can extend the visa once at one of the immigration offices in Bali – see our post on how to extend your visa n Bali. After 60 days you will need to leave Indonesia to be entitled to a new VOA.
