    Dear Mr/Ms,

    I was wondering what the “proof or written guarantee of possession of sufficient funds for living expenses during entire stay in Indonesia;” is, would I require to submit some sort of bank guarantee? or will a Credit Card suffice? and will there be a hold on my card?

    Your valid advice will be highly appreciated.

    Best Regards

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I refer to the General Visa Requirements for obtaining a visa on arrival in Bali. Me and my fiancé are going to Bali over Christmas, 22-27 December, and we are Swedish and US citizens living and working in Hong Kong.

    I would like to know more about paragraph 4 as per below.
    “4. proof or written guarantee of possession of sufficient funds for living expenses during entire stay in Indonesia”

    What kind of proof of funds do we need to provide?

    Best Regards

    hello there,

    will going to visit bali next year. i want to know how to go Surabaya from Bali? is there any public transportation available such as train? please let me know.thank you…

    • wonderer

      Dear Leyra,

      from bali to surabaya and vice versa have 2 options.
      1. plane
      2. public bus

      if your are the adventorous kind, take option 2, but be carefull as traveling between islands in indonesia, you will be vunerable with the security checks between ferry ports on crossing. but if you have all your papers in orders, it should be no problem.

      Note: keep your valuable things close.

    Hi! I am from Philippines.
    My passport validity is until April 14, 2014.
