The Public Relations Sub-coordinator of the Immigration Office, Achmad Nur Saleh, confirmed that the central government decided to leave the requirements for the visa on arrival program unchanged.

The requirements prior to the Covid-19 pandemic are the exact requirements currently implemented for visitors from 23 select countries.

“Following the Government’s Regulation Number 28 Year 2019, the VoA tariff for international travelers is still USD $35 (IDR 500,000),” Achmad said on Sunday (6/3).

He emphasized that this resumed VoA program is only for visitors who enter through the immigration checkpoint at Bali Ngurah Rai Airport. Despite this, visitors can travel to the other parts of Indonesia afterwards and leave the country from any region.

I am confused, was looking at coming over but do I need the voa for a 2week holiday. 600 bucks for pcr for family plus the cost if the ones over there. Should just use rat tests by now. Quicker and cheaper.

Should be free of charge. Not even one US $.

@Wayan Bo, travelers will still come. It's better than the sponsorship visas that many are reluctant to do that will put a hole in their wallets.

@Wayan Bo, It used to be free of charge with a Dutch passport. I remember having to pay for the visa, but that must be over 10 years ago by now.

There was the -option- to pay $35 for VOA such that you could extend it once, though practically that meant nothing as they would not let you get on a flight to Indonesia without a ticket out of the country within 30 days.

Its good that the VOA has returned to the same system as pre-pandemic. Common sense has prevailed, changes would have been a mistake and added confusion to already hesitant tourists. I hope we will see many tourists very soon here in bali.

@Steven, before covid no paid visa required


Tuesday 8th of March 2022

Will the visa-free entry option be available again for nationalities that were eligible for this before the pandemic?

It's not so much the $35, but it takes an hour to pay for the sticker, get it stamped etc - quite a hassle.

@Denise Waddington, hahaha and always happy hour every day any hour.

@Ben, lol nothing changed still Bali time

@Ben, Indonesian require bunch of documents (incl confirm ticket, accommodation, insurance, bank account, 3 month salaries, supporting letter, ect) to apply visit visa to US, UK, Aus, Schengen and many other countries. have to wait 1 week to several months; still no guarantee the visa will issued. Often rejected without reason and the visa fee is not returned.

@Randy, I've done this in the middle east twice, it takes less than 10 minutes. Indonesia needs the money, they must be more practical!!!!!!!!!!

@Ben, there are many ways how that amount of money can afford much greater pleasure instead of buying such one souvenir sticker for the passport. - If tourist are really welcome, but have to pay such amount for visa it can mean that there IQ is at least often more than very modest. - Because of high kerosene prices and another restrictions wouldn’t expect high visitors numbers, especially not from far continents.
