Padang Bai departure tax...

Posted by somtam2000 on 10/7/2017 at 23:47 admin

Panorama reports that an "entrance fee" is now being charged to all tourists departing Bali from Padang Bai harbour.

The fee is 60,000 rupiah per tourist if heading to the Gilis and 50,000 rupiah if heading to Nusa Lembongan or Penida. It is not clear if this is all tourists or just foreign ones—we assume the latter.

No explanation was given regarding what the fee was for. Seems pretty stupid.

You can read the full story here.

Hmmm wonder if this is a recent new thing? We took this trip in June and as far as we recall we didn't get charged. Agree that it's stupid and an annoyance given how much transport to get there costs already!
