How to obtain the Bali VoA?

The Indonesian government has announced that foreign visitors who want to visit Indonesia must download the Electronic Visa on Arrival application. The only thing needed is for foreigners to register their visa requests on the website. They can then immediately use a credit card or debit card with the Visa, Mastercard, or JCB logo to make payments online after that.

Following payment, the officer will verify the e-VOA application, and if authorized, will send it to foreigners via the application. Additionally, when entering Indonesian territory, foreigners only need to download the authorized e-VOA and present it at the immigration checkpoint.

By luring tourists or the upper class from different countries, global talent, and billionaire business people to come and develop their investments and businesses in Indonesia, the e-VOA service is anticipated to welcome more opportunities for foreign nationals who have the potential to enter the country and support the tourism industry, increase foreign investment, and create jobs.

Visa on arrival for 30 days and non-extendable will cost Rp 500.000 or USD 35 and it will be available to all regions in Indonesia. You can check for the details of visa prices here.

B211A visit visa (tourism visa)

While there are various types of visit visas, those looking to travel to Bali for the purpose of tourism need only to obtain the B211A visa for tourism. The B211A visa is a single visit e-visa valid for 60 days and is extendable for a maximum of four times. Each extension allows you to stay for an extra 30 days.

Please note, however, that while the B211A visa is an e-visa and can be obtained online, actually applying for the e-visa requires you to enlist the services of an Indonesian visa agent who will apply on your behalf and act as your sponsor.

Applying for the B211A visa requires the following:

  • a scanned copy of your passport
  • a coloured passport size photograph
  • proof of at least one vaccination dose
  • your bank statement in the form of a PDF file. Account balance must show at least USD 1,500
  • valid travel insurance with a minimum coverage of USD 25,000

The entire process usually takes 10 working days. The visa fee is USD 50.
