arrival visa/payment

Please can someone confirm that a UK passport holder has to pay 25 US Dollars (cash) each for an 11 day holiday in Bali? Is this money payable in any other form i.e. UK pounds/local currency/credit or debit card? Would I need any other type of visa?

Thanks, Heather.

Hi Heather

You would be safer to pay in US Dollars, using good (ie not torn/old notes). That way you will avoid possibly paying more than you should due to low exchange rate etc. I don't think you need any other visa, perhaps you should check your local immigration or foreign affairs web site.

Do enjoy your holiday!

Please pay in $US. as i have posted many times there have been a few problems and scams where your currency is not being converted acuratly (therefor overcharges) then you are given the wrong change in small rupiah notes. therefor the conversions are happening from your currency to $US then to rupiah, ALL at whatever conversion rate the person chooses to use. some staff are doing the 'wrong thing' so to speak. the problem has been acknowledged and addressed but it still happens. don't risk being overcharged take $US
