The Head of the Bangli Tourism and Cultural Office, I Wayan Sugiarta, confirmed that after discussing this issue with the Bangli regional government, everyone has agreed to reduce Kintamani’s entry fees for domestic visitors.

“We’ve agreed to revise Kintamani’s entry policy starting May 1,” Sugiarta said on Saturday (23/4). The meeting on Wednesday (20/4) was attended by the Bangli Regent and several tourism associations. After receiving input from others, the regional government has agreed to reduce the entry fees for Bali residents.

The entry fee for Bali residents went from USD $1.7 (IDR 25,000) to only USD $0.07 (IDR 10,000) per person, while domestic visitors from outside the island are required to pay USD $1.4 (IDR 20,000), from previously USD 1.7 (IDR 25,000).

Sugiarta noted that the revised entry policy is only for Indonesian citizens, and international tourists are still required to pay USD $3.5 (IDR 50,000) to access the area.

However, Sugiarta admitted that this entry fee policy hasn’t affected the number of visitors to Kintamani, as the area has been receiving over 600 visitors daily.

Meanwhile, Bangli Regent Sedana Arta explained that the implementation of the entry fee policy is important to preserve and develop Kintamani as it has been a central source of water and oxygen for Bali residents through its lake and forest area.

Article states "...that the revised entry policy is only for Indonesian citizens, and international tourists are still required to pay USD $3.5 (IDR 50,000) to access the area"

What is the fee for foreign nationals that are Bali temporary residents (i.e. not on tourist visa)?

I do not mind paying justified fees if: - Clear defined service or evidence of what the money is spent on - Under official regulation - Fair and non-discriminating price - Threated with respect and addressed in a polite manner

Why is there an extra entry fee to part of the country? Visa was paid to the immigration for Indonesia. Is Kintamani another country now?

What's next, pay again to enter Legian, then again to Kuta, or pay to enter Gilis or Lombok at the port?

Kintamani entry fees. What are these and what are they for? I thought VOA allowed entry to all of Bali.

You are still trying hard to keep international visitors out with such a higher price for those that pay thousands of dollars to get here and stay. I find it a embarrassing thing that they are so harshly treated.

@Neil gill, From June 2022, daytrippers will have to pay up to 10 Euro to enter Venice, the canal city. Just saying...

$3.50 entry in the article for foreigners is not worth discussing in comparison with Venice.

Why even charge Bali residents? They shouldn't have to pay any fees for they have the right to any and all of Bali's land. Charge the tourist more. The fees are so nominal compared to other countries.

@Wayan Bo, Are you repeating what I just wrote?? Out of state could also mean foreigners or people living in another State. Which part that you not comprehend about " Out of State"? The price bracket for Out of State visitors remains higher than in State residents.

@Wayan Bo, It's ridiculous to judge "civilized world" based on entrance fees. There's a lot of inequality in this world, in case you haven't yet noticed - in the east and west. Besides, those in so-called "civilized world" are usually involved and profit by waging uncivilized wars and constantly instigating and escalating conflicts based on false pretexts and virtue signalling. And if you think Bali is uncivilized, you should probably pack your bags and head back to your "civilized world" and fight their barbaric wars.

@Randy, in USA for example there are mainly lower entrance fee prices for children, students and veterans, but there are no higher prices for persons from another countries.

@Wayan Bo, are you calling Southeast Asian countries as uncivilized?

Yeah right...obviously you have not entered a Museum in the US or Europe for that matter. FYI, members,seniors, students, veterans and children under 12 y.o may pay less than let's say for non adult members, and visitors from out of State. And yet there are also civilized people in the US.
