Thirty day Visas on Arrival (VOAs) are available at the Denpasar (DPS), Jakarta (CGK), and Surabaya (SUB) airport. Note that Denpasar (DPS), Jakarta (CGK), and Surabaya (SUB) airports have separate domestic airports, so be sure to allow extra time for customs and VOA.

When traveling to Pangkalan Bun, please make sure you allow enough time between flights in Surabaya and Jakarta, as there are sometimes flight delays due to inclement weather. Flights to and from Kalimantan typically leave and arrive on the same day, even if there are weather delays.

It is best to arrive the day before the tour, just in case of weather delays.
