In Bali Update #332 we offered our very first on line pole in collaborations with bali-paradise.com asking for reader's views on proposed changes in Indonesia's visa policy.
Plans are currently underway on the national level that will potentially see the removal of the visa-free stay permit for 60 days currently accorded to the citizens of 48 countries. This development, covered on balidiscovery.com in our article "Tit for Tat" may require Indonesian visitors to apply for tourist visa of a much shorter period than the current sixty days. Additionally, a US$50 fee per visitor is also being considered.
When readers were asked: "Would such a visa application process and a visa fee system significantly deter you from including Indonesia in an overseas holiday?" - more than 92% of the respondents indicated the proposed changes would have a negative impact on their decision to visit the country.
Some of the comments from the polls respondents are summarized in the linked article "We Get Mail."
