Staying In Bali For Longer Than 30 Days?
I wouldn't mind settling down in Bali for awhile, but this seems like a big headache. Any suggestions for minimalizing aggravation? How do the expats manage to stay?
I'd prefer access from my hotel, but if I have to I'll go to a cafe friendly to the idea of me staying for hours at a time with my laptop.
Can anyone suggest a cheap place to stay around Ubud that has high-speed internet access and/or a good business with a fast connection.
I've been to Bali, and you have several places where you can stay for good prices!
check on nick's homestay hotel bali. i've crashed there, and you have the wifi and everything you may need!
have fun there!
So as mentioned earlier it will be a social visa but you need a sponser in Indonesia. Check the Indonesia Embassy website in your country for more details, forms, address etc. Good luck
Just to update everyone on the tourist visas for Indonesia.
Please make sure you have at least 12 months on your passport if you are thinking of staying in Indonesia for 6 months.
One can now enter Indonesia and receive a 30 day Visa On Arrival for about $25US.
This visa since Jan 26th 2010 can be extend for a further 30 days @ 250,000 rupiah officially, but some immigration offices might try to charge more because it is Indonesia and rules can be bent.
If one is wishing to stay longer you can apply for a 60 day visa in your home country or apply for one in one of the countries in Asia like Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Singapore.
The visa in your passport will be number B211 which is the same as the old Social Visa ( that old visa previously required a letter of sponsorship from an Indonesian and extensions at the same immigration office etc) but not anymore.
With the extensions now you can travel the country and extend at most immigration offices throughout Indonesia - but in most cases you will still need an Indonesian friend to act as your sponsor but you can have different friends to sponsor you - not the same one like with the social visa.
I do suggest though you ask on lots of travel forums esp LP Thorn tree and find out where are the best offices to extend.
With the 60 day tourist visa you can extend up to 4 times @ 30 days a time and cost 250,000 rupiah.
This means you can stay in Indonesia for 6 months and really get to explore the country.
From reports on TT Bali can be difficult, but Surabaya in East Java is really easy and so is the office at Mataram Lombok.
