Consular Agency Bali

Important Note: Americans are traveling a lot these days, and the island of Bali is understandably one of the most popular destinations in the world. Please be safe and well-informed in your travels. All American citizens traveling to Indonesia are strongly encouraged to carefully read the U.S. Department of State’s Travel Advisory page for Indonesia.

All visitors to Bali must have passports that have at least six months of validity and have two blank passport pages.  The “endorsement” page at the back of the passport does not  count as a blank page.  Balinese immigration authorities will not allow you to enter the country if you do not meet this requirement.  If you are traveling on a limited-validity (i.e. emergency) passport, you will require a visa prior to arriving in Indonesia.  Please contact your nearest Indonesian embassy or consulate for information about obtaining an Indonesian visa.

U.S. citizens in Bali should be aware of a current enforcement campaign by the Indonesian authorities – including hundreds of police, immigration, transportation, and tourism officials. The campaign, which is focused of ensuring that foreign tourists and residents in Bali are complying with local laws, is resulting in increased enforcement of traffic and vehicle violations, illegal work or other visa violations, illegal drug possession and other crimes.

U.S. citizens are reminded to always comply with all local laws while traveling in Indonesia, and the stiff penalties that may be incurred for violations, including but not limited to fines, deportation, and prison terms.

If you feel that you are the subject of undue and unfair treatment from police or other officials, please contact the respective American Citizen Services office at your first opportunity.
