Bali Airport Implements State-of-the-Art Autogate System

Travellers and Indonesian citizens arriving in Bali from abroad can now make use of the new autogate system or automated immigration checks at the Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport.

The new autogates were officially launched by the Bali Immigration Office on 26 January 2024. According to a news report by ANTARA, a total of thirty autogates are now installed and ready to use. In the next stage, an additional 50 autogates will be installed at both departures and arrivals.

Head of the Bali Province Regional Office for Law and Human Rights, Romi Yudianto said that the autogates will “help expedite the immigration inspection process with greater accuracy, effectiveness, and efficiency, without compromising on the aspects of supervision and security.”

The new autogate system means that Indonesian citizens and individuals holding valid e-Visas can quickly and easily complete immigration checks without having to queue for in-person checks.

Visitors arriving in Bali who do not have a valid e-Visa and are only purchasing their VOAs upon arrival must queue for in-person for immigration checks.

The autogates will scan travellers’ passports and use facial recognition to confirm identities. In addition to the autogates, all regular inspection counters will remain open.
