Where is the best place to stay in Bali?

Is Bali a safe place to visit?
Do I need to make special medical preparations?
Simply check if your vaccination record is up-to-date. If this is not the case, we kindly recommend you to refresh your vaccinations prior to your semester in Bali. In addition, in case you need to take special medications, please bring them with you along with a medical statement from your doctor.
How can I fund my semester in Bali? (for German students only)
- PROMOS – the PROMOS program is a scholarship offered by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). You have to apply via your university’s international office in order to be able to receive this scholarship. (Get more info about the program here or on the website of your university’s international office: https://www.daad.de/hochschulen/programme-weltweit/mobilitaet/promos/de/23661-promos-programm-zur-steigerung-der-mobilitaet-von-studierenden-deutscher-hochschulen/)
- BAföG – Every German student can apply for the BAföG support for a stay abroad, even though they don’t receive any BAföG support in Germany. The requirements for the BAföG abroad are different than the requirements for the BAföG in Germany and therefore even students who are not eligible for the BAföG in Germany can receive a support while being abroad.

The stay permit guidelines in Indonesia are very strict. For this reason we recommend that you ask the embassy officials about possible residency restrictions that may apply to people traveling under student visas.
These are the standard student visa regulations in Indonesia:
- Validity: 60 days after arrival
- Extension: can be extended up to 4 times every 30 days
- Costs: 45 Euro
- Cost of extension in Bali: starting from 750.000 IDR via private agency, 380.000 IDR non-agency assistance extension
This guideline helps you through the visa application. However, we highly suggest you to re check the information and visit the Indonesian Embassy’s website of your capital or call them directly.
When will I receive my Transcript of Records?
It takes up to 4 months to get the transcript of records from the courses you have taken. The Udayana University is responsible for the transcript of records. We send the transcript of records out as soon as they arrive to our office. Please contact us if, for some reason, you are in a hurry to get your transcript. If you have a new address, please inform us immediately.
