Add a Point to the Map

The airport will not win any awards for style, but it is functional enough and has the usual complement of overpriced restaurants, duty-free shops and other services.

ATMs which accept Cirrus and Plus cards for withdrawals are available in airport departure and arrival areas and a range money changing kiosks including some operated by Indonesian banks such as BNI, BCA and Mandiri are available at the airport.

Security protocols at DPS including passenger and baggage screening are similar to other large international airports in the region. Limitations similar to the EU and US are placed upon the carrying of fluids and other so called security items in hand luggage.

International passengers should be prepared for scrutiny of their baggage, including all carry-on items. When departing, you will likely pass through a total of three security checkpoints, and possible a further one at the boarding gate, so be patient, particularly when things are busy.

Security protocols at the current domestic terminal are similar to those applied at other Indonesian domestic hub airports with baggage and carry on screening, x-ray, metal detection, hand inspections and other security measures in place for departing passengers.

When departing from Bali, you are subject to the airport departure tax which can be paid in cash in Indonesian Rupiah only, so save some bills for the trip out. The airport departure tax is Rp 150,000 for international departures and Rp 40,000 for domestic departures.

A new International terminal is to be built at DPS and when the new terminal is opened the current International facilities are to be turned over to domestic operations. It is expected that these improvements will make Bali's airport a much nicer destination for airline travellers.

The adjacent island of Lombok also has a new international airport in the closing stages of construction. When that new airport opens it is likely to balance the incoming traffic load reducing some of the onward destination traffic currently arriving in Bali. The new airport in Lombok will also provide a nearby safe alternative landing site for wide bodied aircraft in case of any emergency.
