The numerous international flights to Bali make it a particularly easy destination. This means flights should be booked well in advance if planning to travel during high season (July/August and December/January).
All travellers to Bali require a valid passport, a tourist visa and a return ticket. Although not always asked for, travellers should be able to produce this on request. Citizens of over 64 countries are able to purchase a visa on arrival into Bali. These countries include the UK, the USA, New Zealand, Canada, Australia and most EU countries. A tourist visa costs US$35 and is valid for 30 days. There are lanes for buying visas at the airport and it is advised to have the correct money for payment. The 30-day tourist visa is not extendable.
For citizens who are not eligible for a visa on arrival, please contact the Indonesian Embassy in your home country for forms and advice. Some countries, like Singapore, are eligible for a free visa to Bali. In such cases, visas will still need to be ‘applied’ upon arrival, but no payment is required. These visas are valid for 30 days and are non extendable.
Arrival into Bali’s international airport, Denpasar is relatively straightforward, with numerous taxi companies available for local services. The travel time from the airport to Uma is 90 minutes.
Guests of Uma Ubud will be met by a hotel representative, or a driver arranged by your travel agent. Uma transfers are USD55 + 21% (tax and service charge) per transfer.
