Welcome to Bali, Indonesia

After around 3 months in Malaysia and 2 weeks in Phuket Island, Thailand, we finally landed in Denpasar, Bali on August 14 as planned.

 

We will be moving quite a lot in the next two months, and I will be updating our location on the map you see above.

Bali is a very diverse island with a lot of different vibes, mountains, volcanoes, different kinds of beaches, Hindu temples, etc.

It is also a highly seismic area and we are definitely on the Ring of Fire as we already felt at least 3 good earthquakes since we arrived here (in less than 10 days). Everything is perfect for now, the weather is good, the people are nice and the food is excellent. We will keep exploring the island and meeting some funny people. Don’t hesitate to come and visit us. Life in Bali is really amazing!

60 days Visa for Indonesia, at Kuala Lumpur

Is it possible to have 60 days visa to Indonesia from the Embassy at Kuala Lumpur?

The answer is yes. I’m writing this quick post since I noticed that the information is not easy to find online, or is not recent. I also noticed that most of the information available about 2 months visa to Indonesia is about the Embassy in Singapore.

We were two people, one German passport and one Canadian passport.
We did not have any previous entries to Indonesia.

Important: DO NOT go to the Embassy in short dress nor short pants.

First, you have to make an “appointment” online.
Then, when you arrive there, things are easy and clear enough.

 

Papers that we brought:

  • Form (you will find the form to fill at the Embassy, one copy is enough).
  • 2 passport pictures.
  • Return flight ticket (try to make a fake one, or buy one to Singapore or Kuala Lumpur).
    We also had the flight from KL to Bali.
  • Bank statements of 3 months.
  • Photocopies of passport and of the page(s) with Malaysian stamp(s).
  • 205 MYR.

That’s it. No letter, no sponsor, nothing else.

The lady in the Embassy told me that her boss is the one who takes the decisions: “it could be he will give you 30 days, or 60 days”. I said ok.

It took 3-4 days and we went back to pick up the passports with the visa.
On the first day, they will give you a receipt with the date when to come back.

 

Is this kind of visa renewable?

Yes. The same lady told me that in all cases (30 days or 60 days) this visa is RENEWABLE for 4 or 5 times!!

 

I hope this was helpful.

Please don’t hesitate to write and ask in case you need more information.
