Covid-19 Bali International Entry Restrictions

Entry and Visa Requirements are back to exactly where they were before COVID – except that since COVID, great efforts have been made to move visa applications online. So the good news is that it is now much simpler and quicker to get Indonesian visas before travel, and even Indonesian customs declaration forms. For more information and to apply go to https://visa-online.imigrasi.go.id/index.xhtml

New Easier Entry Requirements

The tests required to enter Indonesia, are now much simpler and easier to do, and include only showing evidence that you are fully vaccinated; have completed a PCR test, and have insurance. So NO Hotel Quarantine; NO Compulsory Accommodation; NO Compulsory PCR tests upon arrival. Here are the full details:

  • International guests aged 0 – 17 DO NOT have to show COVID-19 Vaccination proof
  • International guests aged +18 years have to be fully vaccinated.
  • Vaccination proof can be uploaded as part of the eHAC form, but guests can also just present a physical copy of EU or WHO Vaccination proofs (fully vaccinated).
  • No PCR test is required any more to come to Bali or Indonesia
  • Guests no longer have to provide Travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage per person (however this is still recommended and can be bought cheaply and easily through: https://www.jagawisata.com/COVID19/).
  • Guests have to download the Peduli Lindungi APP and enter their vaccination details.
  • Guests also complete the normal Custom Declaration (can be done online using e-CD (Electronic Custom Declaration)).

There are also special arrangements that allow for guests recovering from COVID to enter. Guests without any vaccinations however, and not recovering from COVID, are currently required to do 5 days hotel quarantine and to be vaccinated upon exiting the hotel.

For full details, please check the special page that has been set up for guests coming to Bali called Welcome to Bali

We shall do our best to always update this page, however it is always best to check with your airline or the global travel website for IATA which is the source that most airlines use including Garuda (IATA COVID 19 Travel Regulations). However be aware that the IATA site may take 24 to 48 hours to be updated, and airlines will continue to follow what is on the IATA site, rather than trying to work out whatever the latest opaque announcement is from the Indonesian government.

For guests whose passport is not one of the 72 countries eligible for Visa-On-Arrival, and do not hold a KITAS visa (for guests working and living in Indonesia) then currently guests still have to travel to Indonesia on a B211 visa.

These are easy to apply for, but can take a couple of weeks to get, and the cost is typically USD 260+ per person and the B211 visa has to be organised through an agent, but lasts for up to 6 months. There are many good agents that can help guests, and although we cannot recommend any specific agent, we have had good reports from previous guests about the following:

When choosing an agent, always check that they have a physical office and have positive reviews online stretching back for 6 months or more. Avoid agents that do not have this.

Foreign nationals already in Bali or Indonesia, and with a stay visa, are able to travel to Bali from other locations within Indonesia subject to the same restrictions as Indonesian citizens (see “Domestic Flight Restrictions” below).

Covid-19 Bali Domestic Restrictions

Guests who have been vaccinated are no longer required to show a negative PCR or antigen test result to travel domestically. Guests only need provide a source of ID, and be prepared to wear masks at airports and on all flights, although since late 2022, this obligation is rarely enforced. 

 Important to note for all travelers

  • Each Indonesian province may have slightly different rules and regulations related to travel health protocols which are issued by the respective Governor.
  • When leaving Bali, be sure to check what rules apply to travelling back to your destination.

Anyone flying within Indonesia domestically also has to download the Pedulilindungi app from the Apple App Store or Google Play and complete the eHAC passenger locator form within it. For domestic flights these do still appear to actually be checked. If you are transiting a domestic location in Indonesia, and have to go landside, then that technically counts as a destination, and a further eHAC form has to be completed for your next destination. You need your seat number to complete the eHAC, so that means you can only complete the form once you have checked-in. More details can be found here.

If you want to be well prepared, print off the QR code from the eHAC form (or have it ready when you arrive) as that is all that is checked, and immigration will just scan this.

All domestic airlines now run many regular scheduled flights each day to Denpasar from Jakarta and most other major Indonesian cities, and all seating restrictions have been lifted, so flights are in some cases fully booked again.

COVID-19 Bali Local Restrictions

 

Batu Belig / Seminyak Beach on 12th July 2020

All restrictions on Bali have been removed since the end of 2022, including the requirement to wear masks outdoors and in bars and restaurants, although it is still technically required to wear masks in shops and other enclosed areas, in practice the rules are rarely enforced now.

We still recommend that you check individual businesses online before going out, as a few very famous businesses have closed during the pandemic such as the Tree Tops Adventure Park and restaurants like Metis but since April 2022 almost all businesses in Bali are back and operating normally, and many new ones have opened as well.  

Covid-19 Bali Villa Closures

All villas listed on our website are operating normally, but some have long term tenants or owners staying in them currently, but our calendars are up to date, and so almost all our villas are available to book through most of 2023. More generally all our villas on our website are open for guests and have no restrictions or additional documentation required to stay.

We have however taken several additional measures at all our properties to protect the safety of our guests and staff against Covid-19 including:

  • All staff at all our villas are now fully vaccinated with both first and second jabs completed.
  • Before and after each set of guests leave, the villa is thoroughly cleaned, and in particular all surfaces wiped with soap and water or anti-septic
  • Hand Sanitizer is provided at the entry to all villas, and all staff and guests entering the villa are required to use it.
  • All staff will wear masks at all times while they are working at the villa.
  • Only staff and guests are allowed in the villa while guests are staying and upon guest request, access to the villa by staff can also be limited.
  • Any signs of fever, or any case of Covid-19 in the same village as any staff member, will result in the staff member being quarantined at home for at least 14 days.

The additional cleaning does take more time, and so we have also temporarily pushed back the standard check-in time to 3pm.

If there are not guests staying the night before, it is no problem to arrive earlier than 3pm, but otherwise the staff do need the full 4 hours after guest check-out at 11am to clean and prepare the villa for you.
