How do I apply for a visa to get into Bali now?

To apply, you’ll need to go through an official visa agency. The entire process should take 5-6 days in total and agents usually charge between $300 – $400 per visa application. Some agents our members have successfully gone through are listed below.

To enter the country you must provide at least one dose of the vaccine and a negative RT-PCR test conducted less than 72 hours before boarding. Upon arrival, a RT-PCR test is carried out and you have to wait for a negative result at the airport.

After that, a 2-night quarantine is required at selected hotels. Hotels range from 3-5 stars and price points may vary. Before your last day of quarantine, you’ll undergo 1 more RT-PCR test at your expense.

You’re also required to show proof of health insurance or travel insurance and flight ticket departing from Indonesia (after 60 days or earlier, it can be asked by your airline for check-in). In order to avoid change fees or cancellations, we advise you to only purchase flight tickets after being issued the visa.

Visa extensions can be made once you’re in Bali for an additional cost.

Will I need to quarantine?

Yes, if you are fully vaccinated, a 2-night quarantine is required at selected hotels when you enter Indonesia. If you only received the first dose of the vaccine, you are required to quarantine for 4 nights. Hotels range from 3-5 stars and price points may vary.

What steps have you taken to prevent the virus from spreading?

Since the beginning of Covid-19, we have introduced new procedures:

  1. Greeted people with a traditional Balinese greeting, a friendly wave, or a nod.
  2. Washed our hands frequently with soap and for 20 seconds.
  3. Stayed home if we felt even slightly unwell.
  4. Sanitized tables and door handles frequently, especially high touch point areas.
  5. Refillled 70% alcohol sanitizer, hand soap, and restocked paper towels.
  6. Used thermometers when requested for temperature checks.
  7. Partnered with our own doctors for emergency needs.
  8. Launched a Nomad Facebook group that supports Nomad travel & safety.
Are events being held at Outpost?

Yes, we have begun slowly holding events at our Canggu and Ubud coworking locations! Strict social distancing measures are in place, and all attendees are encouraged to wear masks in order to minimize the spread of the virus. For a schedule of upcoming events, please check our Canggu Facebook Page and our Ubud Facebook Page.

What is your booking policy?

Does my membership work in all of your spaces?

Yes! All of our cowork memberships grant you access to each one of our cowork spaces, including any future locations.

I have a team; do you offer group memberships?

We do! Group membership rates vary based on the size of the group and duration of your membership. Email us to learn more!

Can I share my membership with another person?

Each membership can only be used for one guest.

How many devices can I use with my membership?

We allow a maximum of three devices for any individual membership plan.

Anything else I should know?

Check out Bali’s Official Tourism Site for the latest updates from the Government, the Bali Covid-19 Facebook page, or Bali’s Official Immigration website.

Do you accept payments via Paypal?

Sorry, we do not accept PayPal at this time.

How do I join the Outpost member slack channel?

Show your active coworking membership to our staff at the front desk and we’ll send you an invite. Then let the good times roll.

Do you offer any local discounts?

We do! Chat to our host desk about where we partner, but members can enjoy everything from discounted brunches to yoga classes and dive courses. Our hosts can share the full list with you and you may also check it out on the Event Board posted within each space.

I’m confused about how the memberships work; how do the hours get counted?

If you are on a monthly membership, it is valid for exactly 30 days from the day it started. If you are on an hourly membership, we keep track of your hours based on your internet connection while you’re in our spaces.  You are welcome to come into any Outpost location and have a coffee at the cafe or attend one of the events. As long as you’re not online at the time, these moments will not count towards your hours.

I’m concerned the internet won’t be fast enough, what is the connection like there?

We totally get it. You have a lot to get done and need to ensure you find a space that helps you achieve your goals. At Outpost, we have the largest bandwidth in the neighborhood at all of our locations. We make sure that our internet providers use different backbones. That means if one line goes out, there are other ways to route traffic. In our Ubud HQ, like our other destinations, we have three separate fiber optic lines coming into the space and a satellite-based backup connection from three different providers. With over 250mb/s shared bandwidth and a dedicated 70mb/s line, you can surf the internet and get work done without any interruptions.

What are the specific details of your LAN/WiFi network?

For those who are curious about the techy details: we use a top of the line Mikrotik Router RB 1100AHx2 with a dual core CPU. It can reach up to a million packets per second and supports hardware encryption. We combine that with our Peplink Balance 305 load balancer to manage all our providers and intelligently distribute traffic between all our providers. We use CAT6 cables throughout the space, allowing our LAN to reach 1gb/s Ethernet speeds. All of our equipment is housed in a heat dissipating server rack that’s mounted in our air-conditioned space to protect it from overheating and humidity.

What happens if the power goes out?

While we wish we could control this, sometimes things happen. We have a backup generator to avoid interrupting your flow. If lighting were to strike even the backup power generator, we have a back up to our back-up. When the power goes out in the area, Outpost stands out as one of the few places with the lights still on.

Is there food available at Outpost?

Yes! In Ubud, you can enjoy a coffee at our on-site café, The Green Window. And in Canggu, we have a cafe right downstairs near the pool. You can also order via Slack and get your food or caffeine fix delivered straight to your desk while you work.

Do you have standing desks?

Yes we do!

What is your dedicated desk set up?

We give you your own reserved area within our coworking space. While your membership is valid in all three locations, the dedicated desk is only set up in one. It does not come with a computer. We can offer you podcast equipment at an additional cost. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment and set-up.

What makes your spaces different?

The vibe. It’s a mix between uber productive, chill and friendly. When you’re in work mode, you can rest easy knowing there are plenty of comfortable ergonomic chairs around. You’ll just have to choose between the open-air breeze or cool chill of the air-conditioner. You’re welcome to rent your own nook/dedicated desk space, create a standing desk, bring in your podcasting equipment or teach that class in a private Skype booth.

We have different spaces for different needs: Need to work together? We have a floor for that. Need some peace and quiet? We have a floor for that, too.

What are your operating hours for coworking?

All our locations are currently able to be open from 8am until 10pm, 7 days a week. The exception is Ubud Penestanan, where the rooftop cowork space is open 24 hours, everyday. As soon as local regulations allow, we’ll expand our hours back to being 24 hours per day for all locations, especially for you late-night thinkers out there.

Do you have private rooms or Skype booths?

We do offer both. Each of our spaces have a number of Skype booths and private offices for you to take advantage of. You can chat to the host desk to lock in a time.

Can I print and scan documents at Outpost?

Yes, we have printers and scanners. If you’d like to print, B&W printing is provided on all plans excluding the Day Pass and 25 Hours memberships. You can print up to 40 pages per month with the exception of the 70 Hours pass, which includes free printing up to 10 pages a month. Color printing will be an additional charge for any membership.

Can I rent a monitor/laptop/computer?

The availability of equipment varies by location. We have a range of services for you to use, from monitors to laptops and projectors, or full podcast equipment (at an additional cost). Please check with the front desk for availability and rates.

Can I bring clients to Outpost?

Yes, you can reserve a private office for you and your client(s). Members of our coworking space can reserve offices at a discounted rate. Get in touch with us for special rates.

Colleagues or friends will be required to purchase a membership. This membership includes access to our space, and direct access to our wide community of creatives and entrepreneurs.

Are pets allowed?

Yes! Your family = our family. We kindly ask that you check with the host desk before bringing your pets inside our coworking spaces as sometimes our members are highly allergic.

Is transport provided between coworking and coliving?

In some of our locations, both coworking and coliving are under the same roof. In others, they are all within walking distance, although we recommend hiring a scooter. We can help you get one.

Can I get mail delivered to Outpost?

Yes you can! If you want something delivered, our host desk or coliving coordinator can give you the mailing details. (The only exception is our Day Pass holders. We’re sorry, we can’t hold your mail unless you plan to return on at least a 25 hour per month membership)

What’s included in a team retreat?

Accommodation and coworking memberships are included, always! We offer many additional services such as airport pickup, local SIM cards, meals, excursions and guided tours around our destinations. We can build packages according to your needs and wishes.

Do you have private spaces for working and taking meetings?

Absolutely, every Outpost coworking space has meeting rooms, private offices and video call booths, as well as hot desks and dedicated desk options. We also have whiteboards and projectors available on request.

What type of events do you hold?

We hold many events throughout the week at each location, from hands-on workshops, to yoga classes and cocktail mixers. Our events are meant to help you learn something new, grow and connect with the Outpost community. We also hold monthly events such as our famous First Friday Party to adventures like climbing Mount Batur or going island hopping to Nusa Penida.

How is the wifi speed in your spaces?

We’re doing everything we can to make sure each Outpost property has the best connectivity and largest bandwidth in the neighborhood. For instance, we make sure that our internet providers use different backbones. That means if one line goes out, there are other ways to route traffic. In each destination, we have separate fiber optic lines coming into the space and a satellite-based backup connection from different providers. We want you and your team to confidently get work done in our spaces.

Are the events open to the public?

The more the merrier in our opinion, so quite a few of our events are open to the public. However, there are many special events we like to keep just for our loyal members, like weekly lunches or group outings.

Can you help plan activities for our team?

Of course! We have extensive knowledge of Bali and we can help you create the perfect trip. How about a day trip to Nusa Penida or white water rafting in Ubud? Perhaps you’d like to catch the sunrise from an active volcano or see the dolphins in Lovina? We can arrange all of this and more for you and your team.

(How) can I host an event?

We are always on the lookout for guest speakers. Just reach out to our events coordinators to see if we can collaborate!

What is the price of a team retreat?

Get in touch for a personalized proposal. Just let us know how long you would like to stay, when you plan to arrive and how many people you want to bring along. Make sure to include if you want meals included and if you want us to suggest some activities for you and your team as well. 

I’d like to partner with Outpost (i.e. cater food, host an event). Who can I reach out to?

Please send us an email here with details about you or your business and what sort of partnership you are hoping to set up.

What is the difference between Canggu and Ubud?

Think yoga and granola vs surf and turf, both good in their own way!

What’s the difference between your two Ubud locations?

Ubud Penestanan is our brand new property where coworking and coliving sit under the same roof. Outpost Ubud is the original location where it all began in 2016. We like to think of it as our headquarters now. Feel free to pop between both for working or events (+ Canggu).

What is the best way to get around?

There isn’t public transportation in Bali, so we recommend you rent a scooter to whizz around town. We can put you in touch with someone on arrival. Alternatively, taxis here are affordable and personal drivers can take you around for a day/week/month to suit your needs (We can also introduce you to some of ours).

Are there any nice restaurants nearby?

Absolutely! Whether you are a clean eating vegan, or a high protein diet Cross-Ftter, the range of food nearby all our locations will not disappoint. Just ask our host-desk for your members’ discount card before you start eating your way around the ‘hood.

Will you help me sort out my visa?

Unfortunately, we can’t help with that, but you can try finding a visa agent or even check one of the Facebook groups for digital nomads in Bali for recommendations/tips.

Is Bali open now?

While Indonesia is still not issuing general tourist visas, travelers are able to enter Bali on a B211 visa (social or business visa). You may apply through a visa agency if this fits your needs.
