If you have any queries regarding your travel plans from home to the Telo Islands, we have a detailed ‘Getting to the Telo’s Fact sheet’ with helpful flight & hotel information.
Passport validity / Visas Passports: must have at least 6 months validity from return date for Indonesia, if not, the airline will deny you boarding. ….it is the responsibility of each guest to ensure your travel documents are up to date. Certain countries must pay $US35 for a VOA – (visa on arrival) into Indonesia, this is done within the airport prior to Immigration clearance. Australian citizens have now been added to the VOA ‘free list’, but only for max. 30 DAY STAY. Please ensure that you bring cash (Rupiah, US or AUD currency will be quicker).

Padang Airport: Our English-speaking Staff will be at the airport to greet you and ensure that all of your luggage is taken care of and will take care of any unforeseen travel issues that may arise with airlines and/or ticketing. It is customary within Indonesian airports to use their porter services to help with your surfboards and baggage. Please have small money to tip your porter for his services (approximately Rp. 50,000 or $5.00 AUD). Our representative will be waiting outside the airport with a Monkeys Resort sign in clear view.
Insurances: As outlined in our terms and conditions it is mandatory for all guests to use a suitable Travel Insurance Policy to cover Medical Evacuation Emergencies (MediVac). A copy of your Travel Insurance Policy must always be carried with you. We strongly recommend using STI Surf Travel or Nomad Insurance which is tailored for surfers. For those of you that wish to use your credit card travel insurance, please ensure that this covers medical evacuation in our region.
