Bali Visa regulations
All tourists come in on a 30 day visa bought at the airport for a cost of $25 USD this entitles the user to 30 days travel in Indonesia not just Bali so you can visit all of the archipelago if you wish. This type of tourist visa is extendable for a further 30 days through the official visa office for another $25 USD however this can be a massive hassle and they want you to extend 10 days before your visa runs out meaning that you have to wait for it to return, sign endless reams of paperwork and waste literally a day of your holiday (at least) The other option for this visa is to get a reputable visa agent to extend it for you. All you do for this is bring your passport and exit card to one of these agencies which offer “Visa services” (don’t worry they are everywhere on Bali) It costs you about $75 USD for the privilege and good agents can even deliver your passport back to your hotel, allowing you the time to properly relax and enjoy your holiday.
Other types of Visa for Bali and Indonesia include the six months business and social visa and a Kitas. The 6 month Business and social is obtained before you leave your country and you must be offering help or consulting with the business that sponsored you for the visa, this does not mean that this visa legally allows you to work here, but it allows you to scope out business opportunities and maybe secure a proper job within an Indonesian company the business social visa costs around 200 USD you get 2 months initially which you can pay the 80 dollars a month to extend (note this visa is void once you leave Indonesia and you will return on a tourist.)The Kitas is the only form of visa that you can legally work in Indonesia with this is a costly year long visa which allows you multiple entries and exits to the country, you only get a Kitas if a company sponsors your entry, you have Indonesian family or you have a permanent residence here. A Kitas visa costs about $2000 USD per year and those holding one and working here are subject to Indonesian tax laws.
