To move to live in Bali. Features tropical immigration (from Alishha)

How to move to Bali? The most frequently asked question, which sounds mouth compatriots in different persons. How to find housing? How to make visa? How to find a job? How, how, how?

I rarely, almost never advise on these issues. Just know that the more answers you will find yourself a break far from any one source, the faster and more comfortable "acclimatization" to a new life. One informant (even I) can't see the picture objectively, from all sides, and this is the first stage is a must. Therefore, the main secret to a successful move to a tropical country is the possession of information (obtained independently). I'm willing to show in what direction to "dig".


If you are coming to Bali to live, you'll like social or business visa. As for business visas, it gives more space than social, but still does not give the right to work in the country (even in their own factory, if you will open). Residence permit (Kitas), which makes you a full member of society is expensive and difficult to open. A great start to your long and fruitful relationship with Indonesia is social visa. It can be access through a specialized Agency.

Social visa allows you to live in the country up to 6 months (and then have to leave and get a new visa). Visas are issued outside of Indonesia, for example, in the embassies of Singapore, Skypark Lumpur or Bangkok, first for two months, and then monthly extended 4 times. A total of 6 Balinese months of your life There are two ways:

to come to Bali on a tourist visa (which is extended once), and after two months to fly to Singapore for social or business visa


immediately to fly, for example, in Singapore, to issue a social visa and land in Bali already with the "social" in the passport.

When I first flew to Bali, I had originally requested the documents in the Agency Bali Mood, took them 30 dollars and opened a social visa in Kuala Lumpur ($50), which is then successfully extended using the same agencies ($65 monthly).


All experienca life Bali sosredotochena in the South. The most popular areas for foreigners living considered as Kuta, Seminyak, Bukit, Nusa Dua, Canggu, and apart from them is the town of Ubud, as it has close access to the sea, but invites people from all over the world the charm of the rice terraces, and probably magic. Ubud is Bali's capital of yoga, meditation and knowledge.

To advise a particular area is difficult, each has its own characteristics. Lovers of night life of Seminyak is unlikely to seduce the beauties of Bukit permanent residence. It all depends on what you like. I recommend reading on the web about each of the regions (from different authors), and then, arriving at the island, take a ride yourself and make a conclusion.

Try to find housing for long-term living remotely, even from Russia, in my opinion is not very reasonable, especially when in Bali, never been there. It is much better to choose on the spot and compare options.

Universal recipe how to find a good home, again, does not exist. We need to look. First, it makes sense to talk with the local realtors and see what they have in stock. Already in the Russian social networks offers enough search homes and villas on Bali. Another issue is that the realtor is not profitable to work with low-cost real estate, so the proposal would be appropriate. The next step boards. You can find them in different coffee shops (e.g., Moko cafe in Seminyak), there are some good suggestions. Well, the most common way is to drive and to drive around different areas. To read signs, communicate with people. The more people will know that you are looking for accommodation – the faster you will find it.

The price of a small house with two bedrooms starts from $ 300 per month and up to infinity for a luxury Villa. The best deals are renting for at least a year, or even two. But you can find great value and quality. Selection of properties in Bali is very large, but the search doesn't get easier. On arrival it is better to stay in the guest-house or hotel, at least for a week, and to devote all forces to search their own homes.

Assessing the scale of the disaster, and to be more precise, the size of the island, I realized that it is easier to live in different places for a few days, than each time to spend half a day on the road to dobirat where necessary. The solution was not quite correct because worn out to pack your bags every 4 days. But it was possible to identify the optimal place to stay.
All the same, the area Seminyak the most comfortable. But it is better he stays not in Seminyak, but a little above it, that is. There is chudestny village with very affordable housing and to Seminyak's doorstep, no more than 7 minutes on the bike. The biggest plus that this location allows partly to avoid the Balinese traffic jams during rush hour and saves a lot of time on the road, in whatever direction you are moving. And the place is calm, there are inexpensive, non-touristy, restaurants. Shops with nice local not tourist prices. And, of course, the district of Seminyak and Kuta are close enough that it was absolutely not boring neither day nor night. And Jimbaran is not something that would be right so far with location. 30-40 minutes maybe.
The truth is this location is suitable only for those who have already settled in Asia and is not afraid to ride a bike.

But if more and Northern part of the island you want to visit - it is necessary for a few days to stay in Ubud. All the same, road to Bali because of the traffic and exhaust fumes of hell. It is better to optimize the logistics and less time to spend on the road. ...
