Dresscode: You should always cover your shoulders, belly, knees and toes when on campus. Please bring enough proper, lightweight clothes with you from home as it can be difficult to find especially bigger size clothes or shoes in Bali.

Q: What is the correct type of visa for studying at Warmadewa University?
A: Socio-Cultural Visa / Short Visit Visa.

Q: When can I apply for my visa?
A: As soon as you receive the official acceptance letter from Warmadewa University. We will send this to you latest 1 month before the semester starts. You cannot apply for your visa with the initial acceptance letter from Asia Exchange.

Q: Can I travel inside of Indonesia during the semester even if my passport is at immigration for extension?
A: Former students have been able to travel with a scanned copy of their passport’s ID page and student card from Warmadewa University. You can find general information about Indonesian student visas here.

A: Yes, you do. If you don’t yet have one, please order it from your national car union’s website. Bear in mind that driving a scooter in Bali requires a motorbike license. Without one, you might have problems with your insurance company in case of an accident.

Q: Which vaccinations do I need to take?
A: We recommend MMR, Tetanus-diphteria and hepatitis A and B. You can ask your doctor for possible other recommendations in case you wish to travel to more rural areas. Bali is not a malaria-endemic zone, so most likely you will not need to purchase anti-malaria medication.

A: That shouldn’t be a problem as long as you bring the doctor’s prescription with the medicine. Some medicines can be very hard or impossible to find in Bali even though there are plenty of pharmacies in the more touristy areas of Bali.

A: There are many international standard hospitals in Bali, for example BIMC, Siloam and Kasih Ibu. Please ask your insurance company for their partner hospital in Bali, as most insurances have one which they prefer. With minor worries you can usually visit the local clinics that can be found everywhere.

Q: Do I need to have a travel insurance? You are required to have a valid accident and health insurance from your home country for the whole duration of the program. The university may request a copy of the insurance certificate at the beginning of the semester. See our recommended travel insurance providers.
