UPDATED: May 19th, 2022

At last travel is starting to look more like it did in 2019 again….Bali is definitely back!!

International travellers who land in Bali and are fully vaccinated (booster is NOT mandatory) no longer need to undergo mandatory quarantine, there is no pre-departure testing required, no testing on arrival, and no hotel bookings are required to be shown. There are some entry requirements you need to follow though before you jump on that flight! We’ve listed them below…

  1. You must have a copy of your vaccination certificate – double OR triple vaccination is required
  2. You must have a valid visa. Currently there are 32 countries that are eligible for a Visa On Arrival, all ASEAN passport holders can enter on FREE 30 day entry, tourists from all other countries will need to obtain a B211A visa prior to arrival. Resident visas and Indonesian passport holders are able to land directly in Bali. *see notes below on the list of countries eligible for Visa on Arrival and FREE 30 day entry
  3. Tourist arrivals must be able to show proof of Travel Insurance that covers COVID.
  4. Tourist arrivals must be able show a return flight.
  5. Passports need to be valid for 6 months from departure.
  6. You must fill out the online customs declaration from before departure. Find it here –
  7. You need to download the PeduliLindungi app and fill out the e-HAC form before checking in at the departure airport. You do not need to sign up for the app before you depart, just have it downloaded to your phone. 



What happens when you land?

Upon landing in Bali, travellers will have their temperature checked. If your temperature is above 37.5 degrees Celcius you will be required to undergo a PCR test. If your temperature is in the normal range you are free to go and begin your holiday.

Does is matter what transport I use to leave the airport?

There is no requirement to book specific types of transports to leave the airport. We recommend either booking a private airport transfer prior to your departure, or using GRAB app on arrival. Both these options mean you have a set price and will make it easier to exit the airport.

Which countries are eligible for FREE 30 day entry?

Passport holders from Brunei, Phillipines, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam.

Note: when entering on a FREE entry, you may not extend this visa and must leave the country within 30 days.

Which countries are eligible for a Visa On Arrival & how much does it cost?

 The eligible countries are – Alergia, Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Libya, Liechtenstein.

The cost of the VOA is 500,000 Rp (approx. $50 AUD) for 30 days. This can be paid in cash or MasterCard or Visa on arrival.

For all other nationalities the B211 Tourism Visa is needed for tourists visits and must be obtained prior to arrival.

What if I am not vaccinated?

At this stage tourists need to be fully vaccinated to enter Indonesia. Fully vaccinated means two shots (or one if you have been vaccinated with the Jansen vaccine). A booster is NOT required for entry.

We will endeavour to keep you as updated as possible as entry requirements change (which is happening quickly!).

Do children need to be vaccinated?

Children under 18 years of age who are travelling as tourists are NOT required to show any vaccination certificates as long as they are travelling with a vaccinated parent or guardian.


Everyone is excited to see you all back in Bali!
