The Bangkok Post reports that the popular Indonesian island will now charge IDR 150,000 ($15 AUD) for every tourist who visits from 2024.
Governor Wayan Koster made the announcement last month and told local politicians that the fee will be paid electronically.
He also said foreigners travelling into Bali from other parts of Indonesia are not exempt and must pay the levy. However, domestic Indonesian tourists will be exempt.
What will the Bali tourist tax be used for?
Governor Koster shared that the money would be used towards improving the island.
“We will use it (the money) for the environment, culture and we will build better quality infrastructure so travelling to Bali will be more comfortable and safe.”
