Want to travel to Bali? There is good news for travelers! According to Bali News, Indonesia has reopened its international borders. For foreign tourists, valid visas and proof of vaccination are required, but no need for quarantine!
Since the Coronavirus pandemic forced Indonesia to close its borders in March 2020, people have been patiently waiting for the government to reopen Bali’s borders.
So let’s check out the requirements for traveling to Bali!
Terms and Conditions for Traveling to Bali
Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport has reopened, and most importantly, Visa on Arrival has been activated for foreign tourists.
For other countries, the B211 Tourist Visit Visa is also available for staying up to 6 months, and quarantine is no longer required as long as you are fully vaccinated.
Traveling to Bali just got easier; nevertheless, there are some requirements and travel regulations that you need to pay attention to, including:
1. Complete Vaccine
Quarantine is no longer required for fully vaccinated tourists (either 2 or 3 doses). This condition applies to all international tourists arriving at any port of entry into Indonesia (Bali, Jakarta, or other international airports).
2. Have a Visa on Arrival
All international airports in Indonesia have reactivated Visa on Arrival (VOA) for 60 countries. Visa on Arrival is priced at 500,000 IDR and valid for 30 days, with an option for one-time 30 days of extension.
When can I travel to Bali from Australia? Tourists today can freely visit Bali as long as they have a valid visa. Travelers with passports that are not eligible for Visa On Arrival must apply in advance for a B211 Tourism Visa.
3. Only ASEAN Countries Get Visa-Free Travel
For ASEAN citizens, traveling to Indonesia does not require a visa! This free visa is only valid for 30 days and cannot be extended.
Eligible countries for Visa-Free travel are Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
4. Complete All Procedures After Arriving in Bali
After getting off the plane, tourists with Visa B211 booked in advance can proceed to the immigration desk. Tourists eligible for Visa on Arrival go to the Visa On Arrival checkout counter to purchase a 30-day visa priced at 500,000 IDR.
All international travelers will then be asked to show the following:
– negative PCR test
– The next flight ticket leaving Indonesia within the visa validity period.
