Indonesia announced last month that renowned holiday island Bali would welcome back foreign tourists after almost two years of restrictions. Excellently, Singapore Airlines resumed flights in February.
Known for its majestic beaches and rainforests, iconic temples with a rich culture, surfing and much more…Bali is the ultimate holiday destination.
Indeed, Bali has removed quarantine requirements for fully-vaccinated travellers from international countries. The Indonesian COVID-19 response spokesperson told Bloomberg that this requirement would be scrapped as a trial from March 14.
Additionally, e-visas upon arrival were reinstated for foreign visitors last week. Although, some Singaporeans travelling to Bali have a visa exemption for up to 30 days.
Likewise, other entry requirements include COVID-19 vaccination, proof of health insurance worth $20,000 and pre-paid accommodation in Bali along with a negative PCR test taken before departure. Subsequently, every traveller must take a Day 3 PCR test and download Indonesia’s contact tracing app called PeduliLindungi.
Remember, this is a trial period and if cases continue to rise, quarantine measures may be reintroduced. Although, Bali aims to lift all travel restrictions by April.

Certainly, Bali relies on tourism and was deeply affected by the pandemic. Normally, Bali receives millions of tourists a year. For instance, it welcomed six million tourists in 2019. However, only 45 international tourists visited in 2021.
