The business visa is for people visiting Indonesia to conduct business, but not taking employment in the country, like attending a seminar or meetings.

The maximum stay is 60 days, but the visa can be extended. The visa requires a sponsor in Indonesia and letters from your company explaining the purpose of your trip.

A multiple-entry business visa is also available for frequent travelers to Indonesia.

To work legally in Bali you need a working visa (KITAS). Most foreigners running their own business in Bali create a company which then sponsors them for the visa.

The cost of the visa is US$1,200 per year, not including the costs for actually getting the visa.

The application for the working visa can be made in Indonesia, but once it is approved, you need to pick it up at an overseas embassy.
