  • Some countries require Visa on Arrival to be paid upon arrival in Indonesia, this is USD $35. Please check about your passport before departure from home. Visa on Arrival is for 30 days only so please plan accordingly. If you require longer in the country please let us know and we can offer further information

A further insurance covering medical treatment is also required. The Underwater Tribe will not be responsible for costs accrued due to inadequate medical insurance coverage. World Nomads is a good option for coverage.
