Post New Topic

Hi all, my name is Sara. Grateful for this forum! Any
experience shared / information is greatly appreciated. I am moving to Ubud in January from
Los Angeles. I plan to be in Bali for at least 1 year. I will not be working when I arrive,
However eventually would like to begin work (i do energy Healing work and angel card readings; lots of new age-y stuff). Can you tell me- what type of Visa can I apply for? The options I have seen are:
1. 30 day travel visa (which can be extended)
2. Social - cultural Visa
3. Work/employment visa (which I believe I need
To have work lined up ahead of time for this)

Also if I start out with one type of visa, can I then
Switch to another down the line?

Thank you kindly for your feedback!

Sara

Once in Bali you'll see many storefronts offering visa service. You can get an "extended" visa and pay a fixed amount of $$ to the person there and they will do the process of stamping the visa for you. Your first time you'll most likely have to fly to Singapore (the closest flight that's outside of Indo), you'll have someone take your passport, get it stamped and have it returned to you. Also, ask other expats in Ubud or wherever you are, how they do it - they can probably recommend their visa person. I've been out of Bali a few years now - it was always a hassle. If you're 55+ there is also a retirement visa available. Make sure when you fly out that you have rp100,000 for the exit fee at the airport.
