Q: Why are you providing a free trip to Bali?

A: Nobody wants to buy a home they haven't seen in an area they are unfamiliar with.  We want you to get a chance to look at the property, and give you a tour of the area so you can get an idea of what living here is like.

Q: Is it really free?

A: The trip is free if you end up buying an apartment.  We require a 2.5% down-payment ahead of your trip, which will cover the cost of a 1-week vacation in Bali.  We will cover your air-fare, accommodation with breakfasts, and transportation.  If you decide to buy, the 2.5% is applied to the purchase price, making your trip to Bali free!

Q: I am already planning a trip to Bali, can I take a look at the property while I am there?

A: You are welcome to visit while you are on vacation in Bali on your own.  Please send an e-mail to info@thebalivillages.com so that we can schedule a meet-time, and provide directions to the property.

Q: What if I want to stay longer than 1-week?

A: If you want to stay in Bali longer than a week, we are happy to schedule your return flight for whenever you wish to return home.  However, we will only cover expenses during the first week of your trip.  The return flight, of course, will still be included in your free stay as long as it does not increase the cost of the plane ticket over a 1-week trip.  In this case, responsibility for the overage amount will be to the buyer.  Additionally, we will not book travel in the case that you would be required to pay more without getting your consent first.

Q: How many people can I bring with me?

A: The trip is only for the potential owners.  You can bring your spouse or partner with you for free, as long as they will be living with you in Bali.

Q: What will I do during my Trip?

A: You will tour the property, the surrounding area, make your color, and upgrade selections, and experience some local tourist destinations.  You will also visit the visa agent, the supermarkets in Singaraja, visit some traditional markets, and visit restaurants at Lovina Beach.  You will also be meeting with a visa agent who will answer your immigration questions, tell you what you need to bring on your return trip, and get your retirement visa started.

Q: What should I bring with me?

A: You will need to bring your passport, a few hundred dollars spending money (this should be more than enough, however you can get a credit card cash advance of up to $300.00 USD in Singaraja for a fee of about $1.50 USD), a credit card (with zero foreign transaction fees is best, e.g. Capital One), try to limit luggage to one checked bag (45 pound limit) per person with a small carry on, a pair of comfortable walking/hiking shoes, swim attire, any prescription medications must be in original containers with prescription label attached, fanny packs are handy and make sure to bring a camera!  Also, keep in mind if you are traveling from the United States that Indonesia uses 220 volts, and a different plug style.

Q: Is there anything I shouldn't bring?

A: You may not bring any nonprescription drugs.  Marijuana is strictly illegal in Indonesia, and may not be brought into the country, even with a prescription. Drugs brought into the country can lead to a 5-year jail sentence.  Click this link for some more travel information.
