Schapelle was deported from Bali on Saturday night after finalising her parole 12 and a half years after she was caught with 4.1kg of marijuana in her boogie board bag.

Corby has just gotten to the airport, where she will fly back home - the first time she's left Bali in 13 years.

Dozens of police and media and surrounded Corby as she was bundled out the gate of her home in Kuta and shoved into a waiting black auto with her sister Mercedes.

While police and prosecutors assured everyone in the lead-up to Saturday's deportation that she would receive "no special treatment" - this statement was quickly thrown into doubt when several armoured vehicles rolled up outside corrections office in Denpasar in the morning.

After officially becoming a free woman, she shared a selfie with her sister taken from inside the van bound for the airport, both their faces obscured by a shawl and hair.

Her case outraged many Australians, with some viewing her sentence as too harsh, and affected foreign relations between Australia and Indonesia. Approaching parole office for the last time'. "She is not thinking about that at all, she only wants to get on with her life and to be left in peace".

A court sentenced her to 20 years in prison, which was later reduced.

Today Corby is required to attend at the Parole Board in Denpasar, where she will sign her parole for the final time before she is taken into Immigration custody and spirited away to Bali's global airport.

Police also arrived at the laneway near her Kuta home to conduct a check.

There will be plenty of beaches in Australia, but Ms Bonella believes the thing she will value most is "going home to be with her family and free of restrictions and the threat of being put back in jail".

She will be processed by immigration officials at the airport and authorities insist she will not be allowed to use the VIP exit.

It took her about 30 minutes to disembark and clear security before she was whisked into a vehicle on her way to her mother's home.

Australian media have flown into Bali en masse and have been camped out outside the house where Corby has been living in the popular Kuta area of the island.

Few people got to know Corby as well as Kathryn Bonella, a former 60 Minutes producer, who spent 10 months visiting Corby in Kerobokan jail while they were co-writing My Story.

Present also was Titiek Sudaryatmi, the head of the parole office, and her staff many of whom have been involved specifically in the Corby case for many years. "We'll be trying to get her back into the swing of things so she feels confident".

Surung Pasaribu, chief of the correctional department of the Law and Human Rights Ministry, said the overwhelming response by authorities for Corby was at the behest of the Australian Government in Bali.

Mercedes Corby arrives at the International Airport in Bali, on Friday, May 12, 2017.

"I have to do the security by increasing the police keeping guard on the streets around here".

"The auto is usually used to take prisoners", he said, adding that the Corby family had not sought this.
