Read some Bali travel information and get in holiday mood
Are you looking for some Bali travel information? You are in the right place. On this page we will give you some facts about Indonesia and Bali.
Bali is just one of many islands in Indonesia, the capital of Bali is Denpasar (shortcut DPS) and the airport Ngurah Rai is the only one on the island where national and international flights arrive. You can already get a feel of the island whilst landing, fishing boats will always be there to welcome tourism to the island.
With the new airport open since september 2013 the island just became a bit more sophisticated it made the visa process easier and faster.
Indonesian visa (Bali visa):
After landing at the airport you must get an indonesian 'visa on arrival' for your stay in Bali. the 30 day Visa (cost: 25 US$). You have to go to the counter before immigration to obtain the visa, your passport must be valid for 6 months and you must fill in the immigration card (you get them on the plane or around the counter from Visa on arrival). It is possible to pay the fee in different currencies or by visa or mastercard, but we recommend to pay in US$ as they tend to charge credit card fees. This visa can be extended by another 30 days.

Very important Bali travel information!!
Be careful with the immigration departure card - you MUST show it again when you leave Bali plus you need a departure fee of 150.000 indonesian rupiahs (click here for Yahoo exchange rates) which you pay after check in and before immigration.
Do not overstay your visa - immigration is very strict and they will charge you 25 US$/day for overstay.
I realized that a good Bali travel information is the internet here, there are a few providers who supply the USB stick, which can be plugged into a power point and will give wifi access, depending on which area you stay we recommend Smartfren, Telkomsel or XL
I am very happy with the speed and it makes it so easy to use the internet all over Bali!! Try it!!
