Bali Governor I Wayan Koster confirmed that Bali would drop the quarantine policy for international travelers by March 7. “The zero quarantine policy will be implemented for travelers who plan to visit Indonesia through Bali,” Koster said on Friday.


The government will also resume the visa on arrival policy by March 7 for visitors from 23 select countries.

We will resume VoA policy for visitors 23 countries: United States, Canada, Australia, England, Netherlands, Germany, Qatar, France, Japan, South Korea, Italy, New Zealand, UAE, Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, and Cambodia,” Koster added. However, requirements will be implemented to prevent Covid-19 transmission from visitors.

The requirements include:

  • Show proof of vaccination or booster
  • Conduct PCR test upon arrival and wait for results before accessing public areas
  • Visitors who test positive are required to undergo isolation at the appointed quarantine hotel
  • Covid-19 patients with comorbid diseases and senior citizens must undergo isolation at the appointed hospital
  • Insurance must cover the risk of contracting Covid-19 during their travel time
  • Travelers are required to conduct another PCR test on the third day before gainning access into the provinces outside Bali

Koster will inspect public facilities such as airports and hospitals before implementing the policy.

“We will ensure that all hospitals have enough ICU space for potential Covid-19 patients while we optimize the booster vaccination for our residents. We’ll also ensure that the airport is prepared to handle the influx of visitors,” Koster concluded.

Still too hard why bother, do you mean 28 days on arrival for Aussies no fee? Also tell me who is issuing Covid insurance, your joking. Just drop all conditions and get on with it. Good luck.

Man glaubt es kaum, was man da liest: "Bei Ankunft PCR-Test und warten auf Ergebnis, bevor Sie öffentliche Bereiche betreten"😀 Hat sich schon mal jemand gefragt, wie lange es dauern würde, 20.000 Passagiere zu testen? Soviele sind nämlich vor der Pandemie täglich auf Bali gelandet (es würde etwa 14 Tage dauern, wenn man für einen Passagier eine Minute veranschlagt).

Und dann "Senioren müssen erstmal ins Krankenhaus" ... Beispiel, Ehepaar, er ist 60, ab ins Krankenhaus, sie ist 59 und kann sich ein Taxi ins Hotel nehmen 🥳

Verdammt noch mal, Gehirn einschalten!

Alles muß schneller gehen, unkompliziert und trotzdem sicher:

Bei Ankunft

1. Passport plus Visa on Arrival 2. Kontrolle Rückflugticket 3. PCR-Test von zu Hause 4. Impf-ID im Scheckkarten-Format 5. Versicherungs-Nachweis (meistens Deckungssumme unbegrenzt, anfordern)

Fertig, das war's, ab in die Sonne und Prost, ein Bintang bitte 🍺
