Bali Entrance Requirements 2024 – Bali Governor Wayan Koster plans to make it mandatory to collect fees for foreign tourists entering Bali in 2024. Currently, the plan is still in the discussion stage of the Draft Regional Regulation (Raperda) on Foreign Tourist Fees, as mandated by Indonesian Law Number 15 of 2023 concerning the Province of Bali. ” “If the Draft Regional Regulation has been approved as a Regional Regulation (Perda), it will be enforced starting in the middle of 2024, so that there is enough time for socialization to all stakeholders,” Koster said when confirmed by Kompas.com on Thursday (13/7/2023).
The amount of the levy has not been officially determined. However, the temporary figure listed in the draft regulation is IDR 150,000 per person. “In the temporary draft regulation, it is still regulated that the amount of the levy is only IDR 150,000 each time you come,” said the Indonesian Democratic Party of Perjuangan (PDIP) politician.
Applicable to air, land, and sea entrances
The policy will apply to all entrances to Bali, both air, land, and sea. “In principle, all foreign tourists enter Bali by air, land, and sea,” said Koster. He admitted that he was not worried that this rule would later be considered against the spirit of increasing foreign tourist visits to Bali.
Because, said Koster, this regulation is in line with the culture-based, quality, and dignified tourism policy regulated by Bali Province Regional Regulation Number 5 of 2020 and Bali Governor Regulation Number 28 of 2020, According to him, the budget from the foreign tourist levy will later be used for cultural protection, protection of the natural environment, infrastructure, and tourist infrastructure in Bali. “I hope that all tourism stakeholders and foreign tourists support this policy to protect Bali’s nature, people, and culture in collaboration. So that Bali will be preserved throughout the ages,” he said.
Previously, quoted from the Kompas.com page, on Wednesday (12/7/2023) in a plenary session at the Bali DPRD Building, Koster announced that there would be a plan to collect foreign tourists entering Bali electronically at IDR 150,000 per person in 2024.
