Carrying on from my post Indonesia Bali & Travelling Solo where I touched on how you could travel solo to Bali. I was only in Bali for 4 days, and felt like I managed to get quite a lot done! Hopefully I can break down a few things that I was able to do which you too might want to incorporate into your trip to Bali. The Rainy season (Jan to April and October to November).
I didn’t apply for a Visa with a British Passport. However, I would suggest doing some research and confirming what visa (if you need one) you should get. Get your head around the current visa situation there are three main visa types for visitors:
Citizens of most countries can receive a 30-day visa for free upon arrival. The visa cannot be extended. If you have obtained one of the coveted 60-day visas in advance, be sure the immigration official at the airport gives you a 60-day tourist card.
Visa in Advance
Visitors can apply for a visa before they arrive in Indonesia. Typically, this is a visitor’s visa, which is valid for 30 or 60 days. Details vary by country; contact your nearest Indonesian embassy or consulate to determine processing fees and times.
Please note: that this is the only way to obtain a 60-day visitor visa, even if you qualify for Visa on Arrival (VOA).
Visa on Arrival
Citizens of most countries can apply for a 30-day visa. A visa like this can be collected upon arrival. The cost is 528,000Rp, payable by cash (no coins) or credit card; currencies are accepted in amounts equivalent to the fee in Rp. VOA renewals for 30 days are possible.
