How To Extend Your Visa On Arrival for Bali (eVOA)

The Visitor Visa B213, also known as Visa on Arrival, is the Visa most travellers will need to get when coming to Bali. You might sometimes hear it called the Visa on Arrival, Visit Visa, or Visitor Visa.

The Visa on Arrival (VOA) in Bali is a temporary visa that enables foreign tourists to remain in Indonesia for a maximum of 60 days (initially issued for 30 days, it can be extended once for another 30 days.) It’s a hassle-free option as it doesn’t require travellers to apply for visas before your trip, although it is possible to do so with the eVOA which you can find out about here.

Citizens from the following countries may enjoy Visa on Arrival:

How To Extend Your eVOA For Bali


If you bought your visa online through the Molina website (https://molina.imigrasi.go.id/) before arriving in Bali, you can log into your account, find the visa, and in the menu, the option for 'extension' will show in the actions tab.

If you bought your eVOA online but didn't create an account you may still be able to access it by retrieving the eVOA from Molina and applying for the extension. To do so simply open the Molina website, find the retrieve menu and then enter your Nationality, passport number and DOB and your visa should come up.

The price to extend the eVOA through the website is IDR 500,000.

* Note - Some people have been experiencing issues with the Molina website not offering the option to extend their visa. If this is the case you will need to use an agent and extend your visa the old way, which involves going to immigration for photos and fingerprints. More detail below. *

How To Extend Your Visa On Arrival For Bali


If you bought your VOA at the airport you will need to use an agent to extend it.

For this we will need your:

  1. Passport

  2. Address in Bali

  3. Arrival flight ticket and departure flight ticket


You will need to give us your passport at least 2 business days before your visa expires, ideally 1 week before. Approx 1 week later we will send you a QR code and you will need to go to immigration in Jimbaran or Denpasar depending on your address (we'll let you know which one!)

You will show the QR code to customer services who will give you a ticket with a number on it, when that comes up on the screen you can go to the counter and show them your QR code then have your photo and fingerprints taken. Please keep the stamped ticket and send us a photo of it afterwards. Approx 3 days later you will be able to pick up your passport with your extension complete.

We offer this service for IDR 850,000 (this includes the IDR 500,000 extension fee.)

More information on visa extensions is available here.

Bali Visa Rules - What You Can and Can't Do - Tourist Visa, Investor KITAS, Working Kitas

Lately there has been a huge increase in people getting into trouble with the authorities in Bali for not using their Bali visas correctly. In many cases, this is through not knowing the terms of their visa, or being misinformed about actions that can be undertaken with a particular visa in Bali. Today we are detailing the regulations with regard to the main visas for tourists and ex-pats in Bali.

Bali Visa on Arrival - VOA


The visa on arrival is available to citizens of selected countries on arrival in Indonesia. You can also apply for it online before you arrive in Bali. Learn more about applying for the e-VOA for Bali here

This visa is initially valid for 3o days (including the date of arrival and departure) and can be extended once for an additional 30 days at a cost of IDR 850,000 to a maximum of 60 days. Find out about the VOA extension process in Bali here.

This visa is predominantly for tourists. When you have this visa, you cannot undertake any work activities in Bali. You can however have meetings with potential business partners in the future.

It is also not possible to change this visa to a different visa. So if you decided to stay longer than the maximum 60 days permitted with this visa, you would have to leave Indonesia and return with either a new VOA (for another stay of maximum 60 days) or a B211 offshore visa or KITAS for longer stays. These would require at least 3 working days to process the application with express service while you are outside of Indonesia.

For the updated list of countries who can attain a Visa on Arrival in Bali, click here.

B211 Offshore & Onshore Visa


This visa is also aimed at tourists and does not permit you to work while in Indonesia. You can however have meetings with potential business partners to scope out opportunities to start a business in Bali.

The maximum length of this visa is 6 months if you extend it every 60 days. More information on extending your Bali visa is available here.

It is possible to change this visa to another one, so you could get the onshore B211 after having the offshore B211. You can also change to a KITAS from the B211 Bali visa.

Investor KITAS


Many people got an investor visa during the last few years purely for the purpose of staying long term in Bali, rather than investing in Bali, and are now facing difficulties which we wrote about here.

Others are getting in trouble for working within their businesses, rather than taking on a pure investor role. To be safe from Bali authorities with an Investor KITAS you need to ensure you are doing the following:

What you must do if you have an Investor KITAS:



  • Investing in and managing a PT PMA business in Bali

  • Your PMA is undertaking activities in line with its business classification

  • Your PMA is submitting investment reports and paying taxes in line with regulations in Indonesia

  • You are NOT working in Bali


The Investor KITAS is for those investing in Bali, Indonesia. It does not permit you to do any hands-on work within your business.

What you can do with an Investor KITAS:



  • Manage the business

  • Attend meetings

  • Undertake staff training

  • Discuss large orders and sales with suppliers/buyers


What you cannot do with an Investor KITAS in Bali:



  • Do any marketing or advertising activities (these need to be done by local staff or a foreigner with a Working KITAS under your PMA who has the job classification of Marketing)

  • Cook at, clean, or tidy your business premises

  • Serve customers one-on-one

  • Be the person holding the camera doing photoshoots, videography etc


Currently, there is a big campaign in Bali to ensure visitors are using their visas correctly. There has been a specialist task force set up and locals are encouraged to report any suspected infringements. It is therefore more important than ever to ensure your visa and/or company paperwork is in order and you are not breaking the rules of your visa.

If you would like to discuss your situation further, please make an appointment to meet us by emailing info@visaagencybali.com

It is now possible to get an e-VOA, which means you can arrange your Visa on Arrival before you arrive in Bali. This is great news for anyone wanting a speedier process in the arrivals hall at Bali Airport.

 

“The e-VOA policy resulting from the innovation of the Directorate General of Immigration is a very strategic policy. The implementation of e-VOA is expected to make a real contribution to encouraging the entry of foreign tourists and business people from all over the world to Indonesia."

Who Can Apply for e-VOA to Bali?


Holders of passports of the following countries (both the image and the list below) are eligible to apply:
