The Indonesian islands (particularly Bali) are one of the surfing capitals of the world and have a lot to offer casual tourists and surfers alike. Travellers to Indonesia tend to stay for longer periods of time compared to European destinations, and as such the average order for Rupiahs is now £890 (14,374,390.00IDR as of Thursday 25th of May 2017 and based on the data from 1st of July to 30st of September, 2016), This is up on the previous amount of £775 (13,772,500 IDR according to orders placed between 1st August and 31st October 2013).
There are constantly moves to revalue the Rupiah. The intention is to make the Rupiah 100 times more valuable by removing two zeros from the face value. If this happens travellers should be very cautious when receiving or exchanging money. This has been mooted for many years now but has yet to happen. It is a common scam after a revaluation to pass off old currency as the more valuable new notes and for this reason we recommend that you buy your Rupiahs in the UK before you leave to avoid any complications.
You'll need to apply for a visa to enter Indonesia which you can get upon your arrival or from the Indonesian Embassy in London. Visas cost around $35 USD (or equivalent) and are valid for up to 30 days. A shorter 7-day transit visa is also available at a reduced cost but must be purchased in advance from the Indonesian Embassy.
If you stay in private accommodation in Indonesia (for example with a host family), you are required to register your presence with the local police authority or you could face a fine or deportation. If you stay in a hotel you will be automatically registered during check-in.
