The price of the visa on arrival (VOA) is expected to rise from US$25 to $35 per person, starting from July 3, 2014.
The odd thing is that there has been almost no news regarding the price increase in the mainstream media. However, you can see the new prices on the immigration website: http://www.imigrasi.go.id/index.php/berita/berita-utama/478-perubahan-biaya-pelayanan-keimigrasian-berdasarkan-pp-no-45-tahun-2014
For some people, a ten dollar increase is not a huge amount of money, but for families on a budget visiting Bali, the rise could be fairly significant.
The international departure tax rose from 150,000 rupiah to 200,000 in April this year.
Other destinations in the region such as Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines do not charge for visas for short stays.
What do you think? Do you think a price increase will have any affect on tourism to Bali?
