Don’t forget your Visa!
When you arrive in Bali, don’t do what I did and go straight to the customs queues to exit. I’m not very observant and totally missed the desk where you need to get a Visa to enter into Bali, so when I got to passport control, I had to turn back again and go to the Visa desk and line up again to get a ‘Visa on arrival’. This costs around £17, or US$25, or about AUS$25, or by credit card but credit cards take longer. The visa is valid for 30 days which can be extended for another 30 days if needed. It’s issued in the form of a piece of paper that’s attached to your passport.
