Tourism tax: On the 14th February 2024 Bali introduced a tourism tax.

The IDR 150,000 fee is a mandatory requirement for all international arrivals. The income of the Levy (tourist tax) will be used to protect the nature of Bali, support the culture, improve the quality of service, safety, and convenience of tourists, preserve Bali's heritage, and make tourism sustainable and green.

Payments can be conveniently made online via the website: or by downloading the Love Bali application from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Input personal and payment details, including passport number, name, email address, and arrival date. Choose the preferred payment method.

Upon successful payment, tourists will receive a Levy Voucher in the form of a QR code. The voucher will also be sent to the registered email, so ensure that the provided email is valid and active. At the Bali airport, officers will scan the QR code to complete the entry process.

Best is to do this online, before you arrive on Bali, to avoid the queue on Bali airport.

Health protocols:


Indonesia has formally scrapped all Covid-19 travel requirements, including the mandatory vaccination for both international and domestic travelers.


Unvaccinated travelers are permitted to enter Indonesia and travel domestically within Indonesia.


Using a local SIM card:

For those who come for a longer time and plan to use a local SIM card, you need to register the EMEI number of your phone.

(If you bring your phone into Indonesia for the first time and didn't use it with a local SIM card before 18Th of April 2020.)  You can do this in the airport.


In case your stay in Indonesia is less than 90 days, you can register your phone FOR FREE at any official office of a mobile operator. To register, you just need to come to the office in person with your passport and the phone. The tax in that case does not need to be paid.

This registration is valid for 3 months and at the moment is permitted to be extended without any additional fees for another 3 months at the same office where you had initially registered your phone.


There are a lot of mobile phone shops that would register phones for free when you purchase a SIM card or an Internet package from them.
