An Indonesian Visa For a Holiday in Bali

by David Pacella | October 24th, 2009

If you’re already tired of cold and windy autumn weather, the island of Bali in Indonesia might be your dream vacation.

Bali is surrounded by crystal clear waters and colorful coral reefs, so it’s perfect for snorkeling or scuba diving.  In the warm waters off the coast of Bali, you could encounter a variety of different sea animals, including dolphins,  sea turtles, tropical fish, manta rays, sharks and more.

The interior of the island is a hotbed of biodiversity, as well, with 280 species of birds, monkeys, deer, bats, felines such as the leopard cat, enormous monitor lizards, snakes and more.

Bali is also one of the sources of the most expensive coffee in the world, kopi luwak. This is not your average Starbucks coffee-kopi luwak is made from coffee beans that have been eaten and then excreted by a catlike creature called the palm civet.

Yes, you read the sentence above correctly, and no, I am not making this up…Wikipedia says so!  Apparently, as the coffee cherries pass through the civet’s digestive track, the digestive enzymes take away the bitterness of the coffee and increase its aroma, resulting in an exceptionally smooth, fragrant cup.  Kopi Lawak can sell for up to $600 per pound.  Indonesian palm civets might as well excrete gold!

It’s hard not to wonder who first decided to try to roast and brew those coffee beans…

Anyway, tropical beaches, scuba diving,  sun, and interesting wildlife are only a few of the reasons to check out Bali. There are also gorgeous seaside Hindu temples, some of which are over a thousand years old, plus a rich and intriguing local culture.

To travel to Bali, an Indonesian visa is required. Here’s what you need to get one:

  • A valid US passport
  • 2 completed Indonesian visa application forms
  • 2 passport photos
  • A copy of your most recent bank statement
  • A letter from your boss verifying that you are employed or on a leave of absence. If you don’t have a job, you’ll need to include a detailed letter explaining that fact.
  • An itinerary letter explaining the  purpose of your trip.
