3. Latest Travel Regulations

On 7 March 2022, the government applied a quarantine-free trial period and a Visa On Arrival (VOA) program for 23 selected countries as well as Visa Exemption Facility for 9 selected countries. The list of countries for the VOA program was then extended to 43 countries on 6 April 2022.

As a way to support the reopening of Bali, the Indonesian Government will make sure to keep their utmost efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, namely by maintaining the  status as one of countries with the highest vaccination rates, as well as the country that consistently provides safety protocols for all of its visitors. As of 6 April 2022, Bali has become one of the top 3 provinces with highest vaccination rates along with the highest numbers of CHSE certifications. 

Note that this regulation is dynamic and can be changed from time to time, so that travelers need to recheck and confirm before planning their future journey.

We hope that this information can assist you in preparing your next journey to Indonesia. We kindly ask you to stay safe by always practicing healthy habits such as washing hands frequently, wearing a mask in public, and implementing social distancing. See you soon in the near future.
