A traveller is allowed to leave Bali, Batam or Bintan and can travel around Indonesia after the 3rd PCR is negative and 4 days of stay.

After the introduction of a visa upon arrival for certain nationalities the government has officially announced, the removal of quarantine for arrivals to Bali, Bintan and Batam.

Here is the update, according to Asian Trails Indonesia, in more detail and an explanation of what is now required when entering Bali, Bintan, or Batam from abroad. 

  • Depending on the nationality, visitors must present a B211A visa approval or request a visa on arrival. 
  • Physical or digital evidence in English that shows the visitor is fully vaccinated at least 14 days before departure (no booster necessary);
  • The traveller must present the PeduliLindungi application on one’s smartphone and fill out the e-Hac Indonesia within the application (the PeduliLindungi app is available for download on Apple and Android devices);
  • 1st negative PCR test taken in the country of origin must not be older than 48 hours before departure. In addition, the test result should ideally be attached in the PeduliLindungi app under the e-HAC section;
  • Evidence of purchase of a tour package or hotel accommodation for a minimum of 4 days. The accommodation provider needs to be certified for cleanliness and safety (CHSE-certified). Asian Trails Indonesia has an extensive list of contracted accommodation under this certification at its disposal.
  • Proof of ownership of health insurance including Covid-19. The minimum coverage needs to be SGD20.000 (equal to roughly US$14.600).
  • The 2nd PCR test on arrival in Indonesia at the airport remains. Any traveller is not allowed to leave his/her booked hotel room pending the results. After a negative result, he/she can travel freely on the island.

A 3rd PCR test is required on day 3 after arrival, to be taken in the hotel. A traveller is allowed to leave Bali, Batam or Bintan and can travel around Indonesia after the 3rd PCR is negative and 4 days of stay.

Should the 2nd or 3rd PCR show a positive result but the patient is asymptomatic or shows only light symptoms, isolation or treatment is carried out in designated isolation hotels. More serious cases will be moved to dedicated referral hospitals.

Overall, while some restrictions remain, it is again possible to visit Bali and Indonesia without major hassles after a pause of 2 years.
