Journalist Visa and Film Permit

Usually it takes 4 to 6 weeks for the entire process acquiring both Journalist Visa and National Film Permit. Local provincial, national park/conservation areas or filming of local objects/attractions can require additional permissions. Bali Film Center can act as the required local sponsor working to expedite this (often laborious) process.

A Journalist Visa can be issued for 30 or 60 days. Bali Film Center can assist with the visa extension process at the local immigration office.
