Flights - Arrival - Visas - Meeting Our Guests

What to expect when you arrive and how to get through Immigration!

This section will be kept brief as you can never tell what will happen as you arrive at the airport in Denpasar (Bandar Udara Ngurah Rai), here we will give you the arrival procedure, sometimes it can be quick from your arrival to exit, sometimes not as this depends on quantity of flights and passengers arriving at that time.

Please check that you are from a Country that is permitted a free Visa On Arrival (VOA). If not you will need to obtain your visa before departing your home country. At the bottom of this page is an extract from the Indonesian Embassy - UK Website with information, but please check the latest regulation before you depart. 

Bali Sea Villas want to take care of you, we provide a pick up service from the airport and transport you to the villa and back again after your stay, free of charge.

Firstly, while on your flight to Denpasar, the crew should give you 2 x forms to fill in for each person, one is your Arrival / Landing Card and the other is a Baggage / Currency Declaration, you will need both when you arrive and make your way through the airport.

VOA Denpasar  Immigration Denpasar

You will arrive at Denpasar Airport, exit the plane and walk a short way to the area / booth designated for purchasing your Visa On Arrival (VOA) if you are not one of the countries that are entitled to a free vias, this is the first thing you need to do, your passport must have at least 6 months validity and two clear pages.  T Having obtained the Visa (if needed), proceed to the Immigration Stalls where you will present your passport and landing card, once clear of this you can proceed to collect your baggage, the next step is to line up to put your baggage through the x-ray machines, there will be an official person just before this looking for you to present to him your baggage and currency declaration (a white form you will be given on the plane, it's a statement of the number of bags you have and how much currency you are bringing into the country), once through the baggage x-ray you can select your exit via (nothing to declare or goods to declare).
