Passing through Customs, How will it happen? and what to expect?

In general, customs officers in Bali are not overzealous nor fiery. They do not systematically search the luggage, and are especially careful not to let in prohibited products. Their control will focus on the validity of the visa (you must not exceed the date of return), and any prohibited products that have no right of entry into Balinese territory. Here’s what to expect:

1. Strict limitations (what you need to know)

When going through customs in Bali, some products are allowed but with strict limitations, while others are absolutely prohibited. In terms of authorized but limited items: you can enter Indonesia with a maximum of 200 cigarettes, 50 cigars, 100 grams of tobacco and 1 liter of alcohol. If you buy perfume at the airport, do not overdo the quantity of products. Sources: https://bcngurahrai.beacukai.go.id/barang-bawaan-penumpang/
