Hi!

Not sure whether you mean arriving or departing. Arriving is $25us and leaving is 150,000 rupiah. It is easiest to use the above currencies to avoid confusion.

Also, they only accept rupiah on departure. I do not think credit card facilities are available for Visa on Arrival. Also, travellers have reported that using their own currency, e.g. au dollars the exchange rate worked out by the officials is definitely not in the tourist's favour.

Hope this is the information you sought!

cheers

Hi nbh - the only airport tax payable is International Departure Tax. You pay this when leaving Bali; after checking in for your flight, head upstairs and at the first counter you reach you are required to pay 150000Rp per person (in rupiah only). This will earn you a little sticker on your boarding card. Next head through immigration. When you hit the departure gate (so after mooching around Duty Free and commenting at how expensive everything is), the sticker will be removed from your boarding pass.

To get into Bali, you need to purchase a Visa on Arrival. This is not an airport tax, but just for completeness I shall mention this. Cost is $25USD per person; you can pay this in USD or the equivalent in GBP (note that they will apply a conversion to USD, but give you any change in IDR). I prefer USD for simplicity and speed rather than been stood at the counter holding everyone else in the queue up.

Booze and cigs are cheap (although they don't have a great selection of cigs if you have a brand favourite). Perfumes and luxury face unguents aren't exactly a bargain; the face creams can contain whitening products if you don't notice what you're buying.

It's the tourist tat that's quite expensive, the last minute Bintang t-shirt, or sarong.

Expensive is of course a relative term; they're expensive compared to market stalls and shops in Bali, but compared to back home in the UK they're probably not badly priced.

Don't forget that if buying booze, have a look at the website below (specifically the part headed "Special information about liquids for transit or transfer passengers"). There have been a couple of TA members travelling back to Europe via odd routes who have had booze confiscated because they've not been aware of this little quirk.

7. Re: Airport Tax

Hi,

one question regarding the taxes.

We fly to Singapore, we will stay there 2 days. Is there any tax to pay?

Than we fly to Joygakarta, 4 days there, than Lombok, Gili, Bali,

and we fly back to Singapore after 2 weeks.

It is clear we have to pay 25$ for entering Indonesia, when we arrive to Jogja. Right?

The question is: do we have to pay Airport Tax 25000 IDR every time we fly to the next stop, and than 150000 IDR when we fly bakc to Singapore, or do we have to pay only once the 150000 IDR on the way back?

Thanks in advence,

Judit

Airport tax departing DPS (Bali) is Rp 150,000 for international departures and Rp 40,000 for domestic departures.

Airport tax departing LOP (Lombok) is Rp 100,000 for international departures and Rp 30.000 for domestic departures.

Airport tax departing (JOG) Yogyakarta is Rp 100,000 for international departures and Rp 35.000 for domestic departures.

If you are formally 'transiting' an airport on a single ticket and itinerary, and only passing through that airport as a transit passenger you should be issued with a card or sticker on you ticket or boarding pass. Seek this at the transit desk after arrival if you have not been issued with something at the point of departure.

This will serve as a waiver to payment of the departure tax in the transit airport. That provision applies to both international and domestic transits.

The VOA (Visa on Arrival) is US$25.00, unless you are holding a passport from one of the nations whose citizens qualify for the Visa fee waiver program.

If you are from the UK you need the VOA, or you can apply at the Indonesian embassy in the UK for a 60 day tourism visit visa.

Hi Judit - Hungarian citizens don't need to pay for a visa to enter Singapore, nor do you have to pay departure tax for leaving Singapore (the tax is included in your airline ticket price).
