"In the Bank Indonesia`s report, there is no foreign visitor paying US$10 for VoA. "
The earning in VoA rose from US$25.6 million in the same period last year, economic researcher of the central bank in Bali Sunarto said here on Saturday.
Sunarto said foreign holidaymakers stay relatively longer or more than a week in one visit resulting in higher VoA fee.
Those staying longer than a weeks in Bali are charged with a VoA of US$25, he said, adding the fee is US$10 for staying less than a week.
"In the Bank Indonesia`s report, there is no foreign visitor paying US$10 for VoA. That means they all stay for more than a week," he said.
Foreign visitors to Bali come by air, sea and land but most of them come by air, some directly from their countries and others via other cities in Indonesia.
