If you’re planning a trip to Bali, you’ll have to adjust your budget a bit. That’s because the tropical island located in Southeast Asia has announced that it will now charge foreign tourists almost $10 to visit the island.

The tourist tax came into effect on 14 February.

According to the BBC, data shows that almost 5 million tourists visited Bali between January and November 2023. During November, Australian tourists were the travellers who visited the island most often with more than 100,000 arrivals.

Next in line are travellers from India, China and Singapore.

Through the Love Bali website, tourists are encouraged to pay the visa fee before their arrival. The visa fee will apply to foreign tourists entering the province from abroad or other parts of the country. Local tourists are exempt from the visa.

It’s believed that the tourist fee has been brought into place to keep bad tourists from visiting the island after several tourists have caused havoc.

The BBC reports that last March, a Russian man was deported from Bali after stripping off on Mount Agung, believed by Hindus to be the home of the gods.
