For entry into Indonesia, you need to fill out a customs declaration. This can be done online at the airport when you arrive in Bali. There are banners with QR codes at the airport that you can scan to access the declaration page. However, we recommend doing this in advance on the official website to save time and ensure a smooth entry process.
Some airlines may require passengers to have a completed customs declaration before boarding the flight. There have been cases of passengers being denied boarding for not having a completed declaration. Therefore, it is highly advisable to check the rules and requirements of your specific airline in advance to ensure a smooth travel experience. Always be prepared and informed to avoid any last-minute complications.
You can fill out the declaration no earlier than two days before your arrival in Indonesia. The process is straightforward and should only take a few minutes. Here's how to do it:
1. Go to the official website, If you do not understand Indonesian, switch the language to English.
2. Next, on the "Passenger Information" page, you will need to fill out the form, ensuring that the information matches your details in your international passport:
Passport Number (without spaces);

Place of Arrival (choose from the list, for example, Bali or Jakarta);
Date of Arrival (check with the date on your ticket);
E-mail (not necessary);
Flight/Voyage/Other Carrier Number.
And click on "Next".
3. Then we provide information about your luggage:
In the "Number of accompanied luggage" field, we write the amount of your luggage (for example, if you have two suitcases, we specify 2 PKG);
Number of family members traveling with you – the number of family members who travel with you, not including you (if you are alone, we set 0);
Number of unaccompanied Baggage – baggage that is transported separately from the passenger.
