How to live a long time in Bali on a normal Indonesian visa on arrival

You can not draw up a social visa, and live byusually a visa on arrival. The scheme of stay is simple: getting a visa at the airport, then a one-time extension, leaving the country, returning back, getting a visa on arrival, one-time extension, and so on. The costs in this case will be about $ 500 for six months, since you need to constantly fly somewhere.

The length of stay outside of Indonesia, as well as the country of destination is irrelevant. You can fly one flight and immediately return to the next. The main thing here is to cross the border.

But it is important to pay attention to the cost of the flight.and the need for a visa to visit another country. For example, in the capital of Malaysia, the flight will cost about $ 200, but there is no need to issue a visa. The flight to Singapore will be cheaper ($ 150), but you will receive a transit stamp in your passport, for which you need to show a ticket booked to a third country (not Indonesia). By the way, if you think about it, I advise buying tickets on and, we use them ourselves.

Social visa in Bali (Social budaya)

If your plans include a longertime of stay on the island (up to 6 months) and you know that during this period you are not going to leave its territory, then apply for a social visa of Indonesia.
It is only important to know that it is impossible to get it in this country itself! It must be received in advance, either in the home country or in any other state where there is a consulate of Indonesia.

The social visa gives you the opportunity to stay in Bali for 6 months in a row, but does not allow you to perform any kind of work.

Documents required for this
- Passport
- Return ticket
- An invitation from your host (in the official language of the immigration service - a letter from the sponsor (Sponsor letter)).

The procedure for obtaining a visa
You can get a visa in any state whereThere is a diplomatic mission of Indonesia. To do this, you need to be there yourself and pay a fee of about $ 50. After a certain period of time, which may vary depending on the country in which you applied (usually it is not more than 5 days), you get a 2-year visa! of the month.

Already being in Bali, you can extend this visa four more times, each time for 30 days.
Social visa is a one-time visa. Therefore, if you leave the country (no matter for what reasons), it will be canceled. To return back to Indonesia, the visa will have to process again.

Bali Work Visa (Kitas)

This is the only visa that gives the right to carry out labor activities in this country.
Its cost can cost you from 2000 - up to $ 3000 per year. A visa can be made either by your potential employer or by you yourself if you are a legal entity.

KITAS visa can be issued and specialagencies, but here we must be sure that the firm providing this kind of service is reliable, because jokes with a work visa are strictly punishable, including imprisonment.

Visa to Bali for pensioners (Kitap)

Issued to persons who have reached the age of 55 years. A person applying for a KITAP visa must provide a certificate of his or her health and confirm that there is money in the bank account.

Such a visa is first issued for a period of 1 year,then for 5 years it can be renewed each time for 1 year and after 5 years already, the pensioner can apply for a permanent resident of Indonesia.

That's all the information about a visa to Bali for the Russians, but I can’t say anything about the issuance of visas for Ukrainians, Belarusians and other CIS citizens, it is possible that everything is very similar. - site of the Indonesian embassy
