Pengalaman saya, dapat langsung datang dan beli tiket di hari kedatangan. Tidak perlu membeli online.

In my experience, you can just show up and buy the ticket before your departure. Not necessary to buy it online.

For other peoples information, we missed Batam Fast ferry to harbour bay as we didn't allow enough time. We arrived at 1125 for 1150 ferry so I would get there about 45 min before departure.

Our fault as we caught train to harbourfront and it was then a good 10min walk to ticket office on 2nd floor.

However the guy in the ticket office was very helpful. He suggested getting ferry to Batam central then get a taxi to harbourbay.

You can also buy return ticket and leave from any port. So we will return from Harbour bay.

We paid the 120000 IDR visa then went to

The taxi desk. It is just outside immigration.

We paid set price of 70000 IDR for a 15 min trip.

Just a word of warning. We arrived at Harbourbay 1 hour before departure and there was already a huge queue (It was a Saturday at 2pm)

We thought we where ok and then realised our return ticket was not a boarding pass.

My husband stayed in the queue (which still wasn't moving after 30 min) and I went searching for the Batam fast ticket office.

I found it and luckily my husband didn't need to be there to get the boarding pass.

By this time the queue was about 80m long.

In hindsight I would rebook the return at the terminal on docking on the way in.

We made it on just in time.
