In accordance with a letter that was signed by the Australian Consulate General, Anthea Griffin on October 21st 2021 for Bali Tourism Agency, Australia has planned to start allowing their citizens to travel outside of their country to destinations such as Bali by the 1st of November 2021. Several weeks prior the Australian Ambassador, Penny Williams had sent a similar letter to the Indonesian Tourism Minister in regards to their lifting their travel restrictions.

Griffin confirmed that New South Wales’s authorities will start allowing their fully vaccinated citizens to gain access to Sidney after traveling from outside of Australia without quarantine. Meanwhile the other Australian’s states have been preparing the same reopening plan by reducing or possibly revoking their quarantine policy in the near future when they reach their Covid-19 vaccination target.

Apart from its citizens, Australia will also grant permission to international visitors including Indonesia to gain access back into the country once their border reopens.

“With this leniency, we expect to see the first Australian visitors back in Bali soon as well as finally rekindling the mutual relationship between Australia and Indonesia that was established long ago.” Griffin said. 

Meanwhile the Head of Bali Tourism Agency, Putu Astawa hasn’t announced any statement in regards to this letter. “I can’t give any response to this letter as we haven’t had any communication with the Australian Consulate General, but we’ll let you know at the upcoming press conference.” Astawa concluded.

The US CDC recently has put Indonesia on level 1 for low level of covid- 19. Despite the ranting and raving of so many out there, travel while fully vacccinated to Indonesia now.

there's actually no official announcement on the ground by government about Bali specific as of today. Nov 1 is only slated by the Federal Government for the opening of Australian border. Even then, so far, only very few countries (5?6?) will open up to by the end of November... Indonesia is not in that list yet. The gov and Qantas has only indicated that they are in discussion about it with Indonesia to open up with, just no dates yet. so this article is a bit misleading/misinformed.

What about the other islands? There is more to Indonesia than Bali. International travel to and from Queensland is still banned.

@Darren, I agree that there is more to Indonesia than just Bali. Glad to know that some people are aware that Bali ain't a country. But some may think otherwise.

The Aussies have been ranting and raving about not having been able to travel abroad and gain access into Indonesia. Well now the world can have some peace and quiet...huh maybe not.

Besides all the excitement starting in November, the Aussies may need to be aware of the 5 day mandatory quarantine waiting in Bali. It isn't fair Americans are still not on the list to enter Indonesia in November. Sighs.
