Individualbali.com – The government through the Directorate General of Immigration, Ministry of Law and Human Rights, has added the subject of Visa on Arrival (VOA) for Tourism Special to 42 countries. This rule comes into effect Tuesday, (22/03/2022). At the same time, a special VoA for tourism in the Riau Islands was also applied with a different country subject.
“From previously only 23 countries, currently VoA specifically for Bali tourism is opened for 42 countries. Currently (VoA specifically for tourism) is only applied to foreigners who land in Bali and the Riau Islands. Foreign tourists can leave the territory of Indonesia through any TPI, not having to go through Bali or Riau Islands,â said Director of Immigration Traffic, Amran Aris.
Countries whose citizens can enter Bali using a Visit Visa on Arrival / Special Tourist Visa on Arrival are:
- South Africa
- United States
- Saudi Arabia
- Brunei Darussalam
- South Korea
- New Zealand
- United Arab Emirates
âTourism-only VoA tariff of Rp. 500,000, in accordance with Government Regulation no. 28 of 2019. Tourists must prepare a passport that is still valid for a minimum of six months, a return ticket or a canal ticket to continue traveling to other countries as well as other documents required by the Covid-19 Task Force,” Amran detailed.
âStay Permits originating from VoA for Tourism are Visit Stay Permits (ITK), which are granted for a maximum period of 30 days and can be extended for a maximum of 1 (one) time. The extension of the ITK is given for a period of 30 days and is carried out at the immigration office according to the area where the foreigner lives while in Indonesia. The Visit Stay Permit from VOA Special Tours cannot be transferred,â concluded Amran.
Amran also appealed to both foreigners and tourism industry players to cooperate with immigration officials. The owner or manager of the inn is obliged to provide information or data regarding foreigners staying overnight to facilitate the supervision of foreigners.
âThe misuse of the Special Tourist VOA by foreigners is subject to immigration sanctions. Likewise, if they are proven to have violated health protocols and disrupt public order, they will be subject to sanctions in accordance with applicable laws and regulations,” said Amran.
