Bali Tour FAQs And Their Answers!-2 Q: What is the process to get visa in Bali ?

A: Visa is free on arrival in Bali for Indian citizens staying for less than 31 days and visiting for tourism purpose - You must have more 6 months validity on your passport from the intended date of return - . - As travel managers are managing a lot of trips this small detail on your passport might get missed so be aware.

Q: When should you reach airport?

A: First thing before an international flight always do a web check in (web check in window opens 48 hours prior to the departure) to select the seats and also recheck the any rescheduling of the flight - Reach airport 3 hours prior to the departure of the flight also check the terminal in case the city of departure has multiple terminals - Call the airline customer care if you face any difficulty

Airline websites have a very user friendly way to do web check in and this feature is free - Ideally airline should be giving a discount or a freebie to people who web check in before reaching the airport - saving a lot of their man hours and avoiding long que in front of the counter- but sadly some airlines have made this a paid feature like Air asia and recently to my surprise Jet Airways - One of the finest full service carriers in India recently made web check in a chargeable event for the passenger- even though it faced great criticism on social media - they haven't bothered to take it back.
