Most of us have already fallen in love with the vibrant local culture and breathtaking natural beauty of Bali. The government of the Province of Bali is pro-actively working to preserve the cultural legacy as well as the environmental sustainability of everyone’s favourite holiday island.
The implementation of the 150,000 Rp per person Tourism Levy starting on February 14th 2024 is a positive step for the government of Bali in promoting the healthy growth of tourism on the island.
You can pay the Bali Tourism Levy on arrival, however we strongly encourage that you pay before arrival either on the Love Bali Website or using the Love Bali app to ensure a quick and smooth arrival. All you need to do is enter your passport number, name, email address, and arrival date. Payment can be conveniently made using a credit card, bank transfer, virtual account, and QRIS. Once the payment is processed, you will receive a QR code which you will present at the checkpoint in Arrivals at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.
The 150,000 Rp fee is payable by both adults and children entering on a tourist visa. Kitas and other long-stay permit holders are exempt, as well as domestic Indonesian travelers. Travelers on diplomatic and official visas, crew members of transportation vessels, golden visa holders, and other temporary or long-stay visa holders are exempt, however, they will need to apply for an exemption via Love Bali at least one month before entering Bali and the local tourism board will make a decision within 5 working days.
With such rapid growth in the tourism sector, we are happy to see the Provincial Government of Bali’s dedication to sustainable tourism so that everything we love about Bali including the traditions, arts, and culture of the Balinese people and the natural environment can continue to thrive. As a result of the new Bali Tourism Levy, we can expect to see environmental innovations and improved quality of service in the tourism sector in years to come!
