Entry requirements

A passport valid for at least six months beyond intended period of stay, a return/onward ticket and proof of sufficient funds. A 30-day tourist visa can be obtained on arrival.


Getting around

Buses are inexpensive and reliable while tourist shuttle buses are more expensive, but comfortable and convenient. Cars, taxis, motorcycles and bicycles are all easily hired. Consider hiring a car and driver. Balinese drive on the left.

If you plan to drive a car, you should obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) from your national motoring organisation; bring your home licence as well – it’s required to be carried together with the IDP. If not, then be prepared to pay a fine (around 100,000Rp – about AUD11) if stopped by the local police.
