Updated Travel Rules and Requirements for Bali
There are two main aspects that tourists need to pay attention to in order to understand which regulations apply to them. General Travel Requirements with respect to Covid & Vaccination Regulations, and Visa Regulations. The following FAQ will guide you through the requirements so you can plan your trip effectively.
Can I visit Bali now?
Yes, foreign tourists can now visit Indonesia. Most travel restrictions have been lifted and visa regulations have been relaxed.
Do I need a Visa?
Depends on your nationality, purpose of travel and length of stay.
What are the vaccination and quarantine requirements for traveling to Bali?
1. FULLY VACCINATED (can travel)
Tourists who have been vaccinated with 3 doses (booster), are not required to have a negative RT-PCR or rapid antigen test result when traveling.
Travelers who are vaccinated with 1 dose or 2 doses are not allowed to travel domestically.
2. UNVACCINATED (only with medical exemption letter)
Tourists who are not/have not been vaccinated for medical reasons, both certain health conditions and comorbidities, must include a certificate from a specialist doctor from a government hospital.
You can not enter Bali-Indonesia, if you choose to be unvaccinated because of personal choice (other than medical conditions).
3. ONE DOSE (only if recovered)
If you received only one dose due to recovering from Covid-19, you must have a recovery certificate explaining that you are not actively transmitting Covid-19.
You can not travel to Bali without recovery certificate if you only received 1 dose of vaccine.
4. PROOF OF VACCINATION
You must have proof (digital/print) of Covid Vaccination, (last dose must be taken 14 days before traveling to Indonesia).
5. DATE OF VACCINATION (Expiry)
For now Indonesia does not see the date when the vaccination has been carried out. Only the number of vaccinations is controlled.
At this point there is no longer a requirement to be quarantined. Either you are eligible to enter Indonesia under the above regulations, or you are unable to travel to Indonesia.
Regulations are subject to change and some authorities and airlines may be more stringent than others in enforcing regulations. Sometimes airlines even struggle to stay up to date and may ask for paperwork, which is effectively no longer needed. Be sure to also check for airline requirements for traveling to Indonesia.
