Is Bali open now?

While Indonesia is still not issuing general tourist visas, travelers are able to enter Bali on a B211 visa (social or business visa). You may apply through a visa agency if this fits your needs.

How do I apply for a visa to get into Bali now?

To apply, you’ll need to go through an official visa agency. The entire process should take 5-6 days in total and agents usually charge between $300 – $400 per visa application. Some agents our members have successfully gone through are listed below.

To enter the country you must provide at least one dose of the vaccine and a negative RT-PCR test conducted less than 72 hours before boarding. Upon arrival, a RT-PCR test is carried out and you have to wait for a negative result at the airport.

After that, a 2-night quarantine is required at selected hotels. Hotels range from 3-5 stars and price points may vary. Before your last day of quarantine, you’ll undergo 1 more RT-PCR test at your expense.

You’re also required to show proof of health insurance or travel insurance and flight ticket departing from Indonesia (after 60 days or earlier, it can be asked by your airline for check-in). In order to avoid change fees or cancellations, we advise you to only purchase flight tickets after being issued the visa.

Visa extensions can be made once you’re in Bali for an additional cost.

Will I need to quarantine?

Yes, if you are fully vaccinated, a 2-night quarantine is required at selected hotels when you enter Indonesia. If you only received the first dose of the vaccine, you are required to quarantine for 4 nights. Hotels range from 3-5 stars and price points may vary.
