Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport will soon add 4 additional visa-on-arrival (VOA) booths in the arrival hall in order to reduce lines during peak periods.
The co-general manager of the Airport Authority (PT Angkasa Pura I), I Gusti Ngurah Ardita, confirmed on Monday, February 23, 2015, that the new VOA booths would soon be operational and manned by immigration staff.
On the average, some 9,000 international passengers arrive in Bali with peak arrival hours often seeing waiting times that are as long as 2 hours for immigration and customs processing. The new lockets and other measure being put in place are intended to reduce the amount of time arriving passengers must spend in the Bali Airport.
During the period January – September 2014 Bali collected US$67.8 million dollars in VOA fees.
