Social Visa Bali, Indonesia

List of Visas and Extension Options

If you have already entered Bali with a social visa you can get a social visa extension.

Social Visa - Cultural Visa & Sponsor Letter

Many of our visitors ask us: How can I stay longer in Bali than 30 days, legally, and what are the costs. Because for many travelers, particularly the once coming to Bali, the 30 days free entry "stamp" is simply too short.

One way to be able to stay longer in Indonesia is to apply for a social visa (social cultural visa B-211). With this social visa (social and cultural visa) you can enter Indonesia once, and stay up to 60 days. And, it can be extended while you are here in Bali, or anywhere else in Indonesia 3 times (each extension is valid for 30 days).
 
The most critical part for this social visa is, that you would need a sponsor letter from an Indonesian citizen living here in Indonesia. Without that, you cannot obtain a social - cultural visa.

On this page you will find all the information you need if you consider to apply for a social visa in your home country, even if you do not know anybody in Indonesia. You can order the necessary sponsorship letter online through the Visa Consultant.

Note: for following countries a sponsor letter cannot be issued: 1. Afghanistan / 2. Guinea / 3. Israel / 4. North Korea / 5. Cameroon / 6. Liberia / 7. Niger / 8. Nigeria / 9. Pakistan / 10. Somalia. The agent here in Bali can only help with processing a Calling Visa, where the costs go up to 2,000USD. Otherwise citizens will have to go through the standard process via the Indonesian embassy abroad.
