find the tips below quite useful when entering this
Before Entering Immigration
If you have registered already for this convention
on-line, then you will be on the ‘airport pick-up’
• Look for a person holding a board saying ‘APRICOT
2007 or PACTO’
• Give your name and the APRICOT 2007 registration
• Once you find your name on the list, you will
be escorted all the way to the transportation area
• You will enjoy a free transportation directly
to your hotel (as long as you are using the official
APRICOT 2007 hotels).
• Fill in the disembarkation card
• Have all your Passports, ticket & boarding
pass ready for immigration clearance
• Stand in the line “International Passengers
with visa using APEC Card
• Same as above, except there is a special line
stating “APEC Id Card & Diplomatic Passport”.
The line is shorter than the regular lines.
requesting VISA ON ARRIVAL
• Fill in the disembarkation card. Tick in the
purpose of visit as “Attending Convention”
• Have all your passports, ticket & boarding
pass ready for immigration clearance
• Go to the booth stating “Visa on Arrival”
• Pay your entry visa. The rates are USD 10
for 7 days or USD 25 for 30 days.
• Then proceed to the immigration line “International
Passengers / Travelers”
flying in from any cities in Indonesia – Domestic
• There is a possibility that your plane will
park at the International Terminal instead of the
Domestic Terminal (because your flight might come
from outside Indonesia prior to the domestic city
you board in). If this is the case, then the immigration
officer might ask you to cue in the line for immigration
clearance instead of just proceeding directly to the
Luggage Pick-Up & Custom Area. To avoid this,
please SHOW them your BOARDING PASS prior to standing
on the immigration line. They will let you pass just
like other local travelers.
entering the customs area, please prepare to answer
the following questions:
• Do you bring in any merchandise / goods (newly
purchased) from outside Indonesia with the value equal
to USD 250 per person or USD 1000 per family?
• Do you bring in more than 200 pieces of cigarette
or 50 pieces of cigar or alcohol more than 1 liter?
• Do you bring in any video cassette or movies
or music cd?
• Do you carry cash equal to USD 5000 per person?
• For security reasons, please use only the
Registered / Licensed Taxis. They have counters located
inside the terminal, right after the luggage area.
We recommend our travelers to use “Blue Bird”
Taxi Company. From the airport to Bali International
Convention Center or to hotels in the Nusa Dua area
by taxi will cost you approximately Rp 50,000 (or
equal to about USD 5.50,-)
• Should you need a koli carrier / assistance
with your luggage, then the tip will be Rp. 10,000
per luggage (or equal to USD 1.10)
All of us at the Committee would like to wish you
a pleasant stay in Bali!

, as they are called, service fixed routes.
You always pay the same amount (Rp 500), whether
you go all the way or get off two minutes later.
But be careful, because bemos are infamous for overcharging
of intense competition among rental car companies,
prices are lower than anywhere else on this planet.
Surprisingly, there are only two models available:
the Jimny, and the somewhat larger Kijang. If you
plan to bring some luggage or more than four people,
the Kijang is the only realistic choice. Do not
pay more than US$ 20 per day for a new and fully
insured Jimny. The maximum price for a Kijang is
US$ 20 per day. Gasoline is very cheap, (US$ 0.25
per liter), and there are many petrol stations.
It is quite cheap to rent a driver (US$ 10-15 per
day). The more adventurous among us may consider
self-drive. If you're not sure of yourself, don't
do this. Traffic in Bali is notorious, even in other
parts of Indonesia.
