Some practical information about your stay on Bali

Visa

Upon arrival at the airport of Denpasar you can apply a visa-on-arrival. To obtain a visa-on-arrival each passport needs to be valid for more than 6 (six) months from the date of entry into Indonesia. The visa-on-arrival is valid for a stay of up to 30 days (29 nights) on Bali/in Indonesia. The visa-on-arrival is free of charge for 45 nationalities including many Asian and European countries, USA, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand passport holders. For a stay longer than 30 days in Bali (or Indonesia) you will have to apply for a visa in advance at the embassy of Indonesia in your home country. Please check with the authorities prior to your departure to ensure regulations have not been changed.

Time zone

Indonesia is divided into three time zones. On Bali, the Indonesian Central Time is valid. This means that in summer on Bali it is 7 hours later than GMT and in winter it is 8 hours later than GMT.

Electrical Appliances

Bali’s electrical current is 220 volts AC. The villa’s electrical sockets are of the European type (two pins). An adaptor is available in the villa. As in many other Asian countries, power cuts frequently occur.

Banking

In Lovina and other large cities such as Singaraja you will find ATM cash machines where you can use your ATM or Debit Card to withdraw Indonesian Rupiah. Keep in mind that most of the times you can only withdraw a small amount at a time. It is therefore advisable to bring some cash on arrival.
