The Old Bali Blog « Up, up... and away! Price of Indonesia's Visa on Arrival (VOA) rises by 40%
So the Jungle Wire at Facebook's modest Ubud Community beat the national papers to it. The Visa on Arrival (VOA) - good for 30 days - has gone up, rising a hefty 40% overnight from US$25 to US$35.
If they can cut the queues at Passport Control by 40% and send you to the right baggage carousel, it might almost be worth it. So bring US cash - if you plan to pay in anything but the Green Monster, the kind lady behind the desk will do a dazzling piece of mental arithmetic and up it again.
The kick-in-the-pants International Departure Tax also rose from Rp.150,000 to Rp.200,000 - so you'd better go without that last Burger King splash-out if you don't want to surrender your fake Rolex to the other kind lady on the way out.
But don't worry. It's all in line with PP No. 45/2014.
And all relevant parties - except for a few thousand tourists - have duly been informed.
