Visa on arrival

Bali has charged tourists for visa on arrival since February 2004. Staying less than 7 days (included) is 10USD, 7 days to one month is 25USD. The maximum stay is one month. Make sure you have the exact change ready for paying the fee at the visa counter before lining up at the immigration counter as sometimes they don't give your change back. Also they randomly require tourists to provide two 2-inch snap shot photos, so it's suggested to have these ready, too.


According to some of the tourists' comment, on the way to Ubud some taxi or pickup service drivers will take you to expensive souvenir shops where they can get a high percentage bonus. We would suggest you to say no to these offers if they happen. Check out our Transportation webpage for your transportation needs.


Currency exchange

If you plan to bring USD to Bali for exchange, remember USD issued before 1996 (included) is not accepted by all Money Changers here in Bali. Also larger denominations always get a higher rate. Furthermore, due to large quantity of fake USD paper bills, most countries in South East Asia stop accepting USD bill that comes with a series number that begins with CB. The current exchange rate of USD to Rupiah is at 1 to 10,088.
