Emergency Contact Numbers in Bali

When planning your holiday to Bali (or anywhere in the world), it’s a good idea to prepare a list with local emergency contact numbers. Unfortunately, this is often forgotten by travelers as we all assume we don’t need it.

However, you never know when you get in a situation that requires emergency help. Whether it’s for yourself, your friends or families, or a random person you witness getting into trouble.

Here’s a list of important phone numbers in Bali:

The main emergency number is 112. When using a local SIM, enter 0361 first, and when using an overseas SIM card dial +62 361 112.

However, getting a taxi and driving to the nearest hospital is in most cases faster and easier than calling for an ambulance.

When staying in a resort or villa, you can also call the staff for help. Usually, you can reach the operator by dialing 0 from your room phone.

  • Main Emergency Number: 112
  • Police: 110
  • Medical Emergency: 112
  • Fire Department: 113
  • Search and Rescue: 111, 115, or 151
  • Tourist Police Kuta: +62 361 784 5988
  • Tourist Police Nusa Dua: +62 361 744 2622
  • Tourist Police Airport: +62 361 935 102

Keep this dialing procedure in mind:

Local SIM -> Dial 0361 first

Foreign SIM -> Dial +62 361 before the emergency number

We truly hope you don’t need any of this information during your holiday. But just in case… bookmark this page or save a screenshot of the emergency contact numbers.
