To save time at the airport, please ensure that you pay the fee ahead of your flight to Bali by visiting the official website.

Important: If for any reason you are unable to pay prior to departure, alternative payment options are available on arrival in Bali.


Some exemptions may apply. For details, refer to the Love Bali FAQs.
