Message from the Consul-General in Bali
Welcome to the website of the Australian Consulate-General in Bali. This website outlines important information for Australians travelling to or living in Bali and West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), including how to contact the Consulate-General and the range of consular and passport services available. We also provide a limited range of consular services to Canadian citizens. Information on Australian visas and citizenship is also available on this website.
I urge all Australians planning to travel to Bali or NTB, as well as all resident Australians, to:
Check the smartraveller.gov.au website for the latest travel advice on Indonesia, including general advice on security and health matters. You can also subscribe to automatically receive email updates whenever the travel advisory is changed.
Register on-line so that in the event of an emergency, such as a natural disaster or a family emergency, we can contact you.
Ensure that each person travelling in your party (including children) is covered by adequate travel insurance. While Bali and NTB offer a great array of experiences and activities, it is important that your travel insurance covers everything you could potentially engage in.
Carefully read the advice under Services for Australians and ensure that people travelling in your party are aware of the potential problems that may be encountered.
