    1. With the things going in and how the Indonesian government reacts, I highly doubt there will be total lockdown in the future. Just to let you know, Bali already reopened some beaches and allowing modern market & bussiness to open from 8am to 11pm with full covid-19 protocols. Really hope things going well soon. – Joe.

  1. Does anyone know a reliable source (website etc…) for the “do’s and don’ts” to enter Bali during the Covid 19 period.
    My wife has a ticket from Amsterdam to Denpasar, she has a spouse Kitas. We know she needs a negative CPR result, a filled in QR document, but there are rumours she needs to go in external quarantaine.
    It would be great if you could help. Thanks Bert

    1. Hi, first you need to sign up here

      and if you have KITAS and have flight to Bali available, after entering, you will have to do self isolation/quarantine.
      you will need someone/parties that can guarantee travel actors.
      please note that the expiration date of PCR/SWAB test only 7 days. So you will have to fly within those 7 days.

  2. Why do you let the wealthy brazilians and australian surfers stay in bali with covid. They cry that they can’t surf while indonesians aren’t allowed to. In all the years i have been in bali i have never seen such cry babies. The phoney brazilians partying at the bukit and on the beaches while others can’t go there
