What do you need to prepare?

For ASEAN and the passport holder from the previously mentioned states above, you must bring yourself, your passport, and pocket money for your dream vacation in Bali. Still, suppose you are applying for a B211A visa. In that case, you will need a passport scan, a passport-style photo, and a vaccine certificate that proves you’ve been vaccinated at least twice with any vaccine available.

How to Extend and How Long?

ASEAN passport holders are not allowed to extend their visas. After 30 days, you must go out of the country before entering again. VOA holders are eligible to extend their visa once and will grant another month to stay. For a B211A visa, you can extend it twice, each for 60 days, so that you will be awarded a total of 180 days of stay.
