BALI:

All foreigners including Singaporeans will have to pay 150,000 rupiah (S$13) in tourism tax when they visit Indonesia’s Bali from Feb 14 onwards.

The new tourism tax applies to those visiting mainland Bali as well as its surrounding islands such as Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan.

Tourists arriving from other parts of Indonesia via land or domestic flights also have to pay the tax. Children are not exempted.

As the levy is collected per entry, island-hoppers who are going to nearby Lombok and Gili Islands, which lie outside of Bali province, will have to pay another 150,000 rupiah when they return to Bali.

Bali tourism chief Tjok Bagus Pemayun first announced the start date of the tourism tax in September 2023.

He had assured that payment can be processed at airport counters in no more than 23 seconds, reported The Bali Sun.

But according to a recent official notice, tourists are encouraged to pay the tax via the Love Bali website or app before leaving for the island.
