    • VOA extension or Tourist Visa??? (Repost - not sure if first post went through)

      Bali Oct 3, 2015 at 3:50 AM

      Hey guys,

      Myself and a friend are heading to Bali at the end of this month, with the plan to stay there for around 60 days (until around xmas time). But I have still yet to decide whether to get a Tourist Visa beforehand or get our VOAs extended while we are out there. In regards to the VOA extension, do you have to leave and come back into Indonesia (and fly to say Singapore and back) or can you get the extension done without leaving Bali? Also as an additional note, I went to Bali by myself earlier this summer and got a VOA, but didn't get it extended, and left on time (I was there for 29 days). Also we both don't live far from the Indonesian Consulate in London where we would go to get our Tourist Visas.

      So yes if you guys are able to help and give clarity around what you feel is the best option to go for the VOA extension or the tourist visa , such input will be greatly appreciated!

      Many thanks,

    • How to get there?

      by RPMB Online Now Feb 20, 2012 at 1:35 AM

      I can get the ferry from Tawau to Tarakan. I guess I have to stay there overnight. Then the ferry to Tanjung Batu. But how to I get from there out to Pulau Derewan? And can I stay in one of the Losmen (maybe Losmen Danakan?) and find a Dive Centre to arrange my own diving? Thanks!
