Bali is open to international tourists: Here’s all you need to know about visas, quarantine and PCR testing

Want to travel back to Bali? Indonesia has re-opened its international borders to foreign tourists, providing they hold a valid visa and show proof of vaccination. No quarantine or PCR required!

Ever since the Corona virus pandemic forced Indonesia to close its borders back in March 2020, all eyes were on the government to see when (and how) the Bali borders would re-open to international travelers. Well, Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport has now reopened, and to top it all off, Visas on Arrival have been reinstated for certain foreign travelers. For all other nationalities, the B211 Tourism Visit Visas are also available for stays of up to 6 months, and quarantine is no longer required for fully-vaccinated travelers (but you can stay in a CHSE approved hotel if you want the best in cleanliness, health and safety!).

But before you jump on a flight, there are a few things to take note of. For starters, all foreign arrivals must show proof of complete vaccination (either two doses or a booster), all international visitors must also hold a valid visa (like the Visa on Arrival or the B211 Tourism Visit Visa), and all arrivals must have travel insurance that covers Covid-related emergencies.

Bali is open for tourism: Here’s all you need to know

From scrapping quarantine and PCRs, to reinstating Visas on Arrival for certain nationalities, travelling to Indonesia (and Bali) is getting easier and easier by the day. But there are some requirements and travel regulations you need to take note of…


Both quarantine and PCR testing is no longer required for fully vaccinated travelers (either 2 or 3 doses) travelling to Indonesia. This applies to all international travelers arriving at any port of entry, whether it’s Bali, Jakarta, or any other international airport in Indonesia.


All international airports in Indonesia have now reinstated Visas on Arrival (VOA) for 86 nationalities. Visas on Arrival are priced at IDR 500,000 and are valid for 30 days, with the possibility to extend once for a further 30 days.

The 86 nationalities eligible for the Visa On Arrival are: Albania, Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, Colombia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Laos, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Morocco, Myanmar, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Palestine, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Seychelles, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Suriname, Sweden, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste, Tunisia, Turkey, UAE, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA, Uzbekistan, Vatican and Vietnam.

**Travelers who hold a passport that is not eligible for the Visa On Arrival will need to pre-apply for the B211 Tourism Visa instead.


For citizens of ASEAN countries, travelling to Indonesia does not require any visa at all! This free-visa is valid for 30 days only and is non-extendable.

The nationalities eligible for Visa-Free travel are: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

**Travelers who wish to stay longer than 30 days will need to pre-apply for the B211 Tourism Visa, or purchase the Visa on Arrival, if eligible.


  1. Make sure you are fully vaccinated(two doses OR a booster) more than 14 days prior to arrival into Indonesia.
    2. Get your documents in order: you’ll need the right visa(either a pre-applied B211 visa or a Visa On Arrival, if eligible), you’ll need at least 6 months validity left on your passport, and you’ll need a booked flight leaving Indonesia within your visa validity.
    3. Download the PeduliLindungi app. At check-in, you’ll need to show that this is downloaded on your phone.
    4. Print all of your documents (it makes everything so much easier!). This means your vaccination certificate, your visa (if applicable) and your return flight details.


  1. After disembarking from the aircraft, travelers with a pre-booked B211 Visacan proceed to the relevant immigration desks. For travelers eligible for the Visa On Arrival, head to the Visa On Arrival payment desk to purchase your 30-day visa (IDR 500,000).
  2. All international travelers will then be required to show the following:
    – An onward flightleaving Indonesia within the visa’s validity period.
    – A valid visa(like the B211, the free visa or the Visa on Arrival, if eligible).
    – The PeduliLindungi App downloaded on your phone.
  3. If all documents are in order, all international arrivals are then free to leave the airport and travel around Bali (or other islands in Indonesia!) as normal.
