All travelers from the above countries must be in possession of a passport which is valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival. They must sometimes also be able to prove they have sufficient funds for their stay in Indonesia, if the immigration officer has doubts that they can. Sometimes it is necessary to show them the return ticket or confirmation slip. But since travelers can book easily online now and on short notice, and people carry credit cards, this happens very seldom
Arriving travelers with Visa-On-Arrival status have to go first to one of the “VoA Counters” to pay the appropriate fee before proceeding to the Immigration Clearance Desk. Payment of visa fees can be made in US Dollar or Indonesia Rupiah, AUS$, or EUR. Sometimes other currencies are accepted and even credit cards. But to avoid long queues and problems at the counter it’s better to have the cash ready.
REQUIREMENT AND TYPES OF VISA BEFORE ARRIVAL
Citizens of countries neither on the VoA nor Visa-Free lists are required to apply for a visa overseas BEFORE travelling to Indonesia. Nationals of ALL countries planning to stay for more than 30 (or respect. 60) days in Indonesia also have to apply for the appropriate visa type (tourist, business, social-cultural, etc.) at an overseas Indonesian Consulate or Foreign Mission before departing for Indonesia.
Weapons, narcotics and pornography are prohibited to bring into Bali. Pets are strictly banned to prevent the spread of rabies.
Alcohol & Tobacco
You are only allowed to bring a maximum of one liter of alcohol, 200 cigarettes, 50 cigars or 100grams of tobacco and a reasonable amount of perfume into Indonesia. Photographic equipment, typewriters, laptop computers and radios are admitted, provided that they are taken out on departure. All these should be declared via a customs declaration form that must be completed before arrival. The form might be handed to you in the airplane, otherwise there is a counter next to the conveyor belts where you pick up your luggage.
Another subject is the import and export of money; one is not allowed to import or export cash amounts exceeding Rp. 100 million. In addition, the export of national treasures is frowned upon – genuine antiques, tortoise shell, crocodile skins and ivory are not to be taken out of Indonesia.
