DO I NEED A VISA TO VISIT BALI (ONLY FOR INDIANS)
Indonesia is one of the few countries in the world which doesn't require a Visa for Indians. Previously, there was a Visa on Arrival scheme for Indians. However, if you stay less than 30 days in Indonesia, then there is no need to apply for any Visa. You will just get a "Visa exemption stamp" at immigration.
Note: This Visa exemption facility cannot be extended. You must leave the country before the expiry of the 30 days.
Visa Exemption Scheme is free. You don't need to pay anything to get entry into Indonesia. If you wish to stay in the country for 30-60 days, then you can get a Visa-on-Arrival. This Visa is also valid for 30 days but you have the option of extending it once by another 30 days. Cost of this Visa is USD 35.
If you wish to stay longer than 60 days, then I would suggest you to read this.
Always remember one thing, Visa rules changes in the blink of an eye. Hence, do your own research before going to any country.
Indonesia Visa on Exemption Stamp is very easy to get. However, always carry proper documents like hotel bookings, return flight bookings, sufficient cash and credit/debit cards. I was lucky that I was not asked to show anything to the immigration authorities. They just stamped my passport without asking for anything.
Always be clear in documentation while travelling to a foreign country. Keep hard copies of everything. 2 sets is recommended.
