Bali Set To Reopen To International Travellers February 4th

One of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations, Bali, has announced their border will reopen on February 4th to international travellers. However, there are a few entry rules.

As Indonesia seeks to provide economic recovery, particularly in Bali, which relies on tourism for 54 per cent of their financial income, their ban on international arrivals will be lifted - pending a few entry requirements. 

All foreign arrivals are required to spend five days in self-isolation and seven days for unvaccinated arrivals. 

This will be in addition to the standard visa entry requirements that Indonesia requires for foreign travellers. 

However, although unvaccinated travellers can enter Bali, Australia does not allow anybody with less than 2 COVID vaccine doses through the border. 

So, if you are looking to holiday in Indonesia and return to Australia, ensure you consider the rules regarding returning home.

Many Australian airlines are yet to release flights to the island however, some airlines have stated they will look to commence flights from March, and some as early as February 14th onwards. 

So you may have to wait a few days from the border reopening before you can get into holiday mode.

Indonesia is still recording many covid cases per day, attributed to the Omicron variant. With an average of 9,150 new cases reported each day in the last week of January.
