What to do when you have overstayed your visa in Bali

Another common immigration breach in Bali is overstaying one’s visa. Regardless of the reason, staying after your visa or stay permit expires, is a grave breach. By doing so, you will risk fines, blacklisting, or deportation, like happened to the Czech tourist who had ‘such a good time on the island’ he did not notice he’d been overstaying for 60 days. If you have stayed in Bali for longer than your visa allows, the consequences depend on how many days you have overstayed.

Avoid getting deported from Indonesia

Deporting and blacklisting in Indonesia will follow once you fail to pay the fine while being in the country for less than 60 days. The same applies when you are in the country with a stay permit that is no longer valid and exceeds 60 days. However, blacklisting and sending out of the country is something you can prevent. Note that the Immigration officials in Indonesia are doing an excellent job at keeping their eye on any immigration-related violations. Besides, it is often a case of receiving a tip from someone, which leads the officials to check upon the documents of expats and foreign businesses.
