The revenue of a visiting visa (visa on arrival/ VoA) from foreign tourists to Bali during January-September 2013 reached 36.6 million U.S. dollars, or an average of 4.1 million dollars per month.
“The revenue of the tourism sector during the third quarter of 2013 is the highest, which is 18.7 million U.S. dollars,” said Deputy Director of Bank Indonesia Region III Suarpika Bimantoro in Denpasar, on Saturday.
He said that the revenue collected from foreign tourists who step into Bali entrance gate rose 15.14 percent from the same period in the previous year, which was 14.97 million dollars.
In the report of Bali Third Quarter 2013 regional economic analysis mentioned that the income of the visiting visa from foreigners who having their vacation on the island was quite good when compared to the current global economic condition.
The revenue of the tourism sector is as much as 18.7 million dollars in the third quarter of 2013 paid by about two million people who are obliged to pay VoA when come to Bali, because not all foreign tourists who come to this area have to pay VoA.
While in the second quarter of 2013 the revenue was only 14.97 million dollars received from 720,114 people, this means the VOA revenue and the number of travelers coming to Bali increased, in line with the growth of world tourism.
