Bali springs new Padang Bay Harbor tax on passengers

Balinese authorities yesterday announced it will impose a new tax on passengers travelling from Bali’s Padang Bay Harbor to the Gili Islands, Lombok, Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, just two days shy of the implementation date on July 8.

The fee, which can only be paid in cash prior to embarkation, is 60,000 rupiah (US$4.47) per pax for passengers heading to Gili and Lombok, and 50,000 rupiah (US$3.73) per pax for those leaving for Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, according to an Asian Trails Indonesia email notifying partners of the change.

In the same email, the DMC also described the short notice of new tax regulation as regrettable.
