Foreign tourists who go to Bali will certainly no longer need to undergo a quarantine period like before. The government plans to accelerate the quarantine-free test plan for foreign tourists in Bali starting Monday, March 7, 2022

The news was also conveyed by the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno in his Instagram upload.

Previously, the quarantine-free test for foreign tourists in Bali was scheduled for March 14, 2022. However, the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, said there was a possibility that it could be accelerated.

Quarantine free in Bali

Foreign tourists visiting Bali do not need to self-quarantine as the previous rules require them to quarantine for 3 days. However, the government has implemented several quarantine-free conditions for foreign tourists in Bali. The following are the requirements to get quarantine free for foreign tourists who enter Bali:

  • Have a full dose of Covid-19 vaccine or booster.
  • Negative PCR test result before departure
  • Have proof of a hotel reservation that has been paid for a minimum of four days in Bali

The government also requires tourists to have health insurance to ensure the handling of Covid-19.

Reasons for accelerated quarantine free

The acceleration of the quarantine free trial for tourists in Bali has been considered from two factors, including:

  • Low positivity rate
    • This is evidenced by the results of the PCR entry test which is only 0.47 percent and the PCR exit test by 1 percent.

  • Decrease in Covid-19 cases
    • The coverage of the second dose of vaccination in Bali is higher than in other provinces. Meanwhile, the booster vaccination program is also being carried out.
