Government Reopens Bali Airport for International Flights
Bali airport will be open for international flights starting from October 14.
Tempo.co reported that the Indonesian government will reopen Bali’s Ngurah Rai airport to international arrivals from South Korea, China, Japan, the Emirates, and New Zealand on October 14. The announcement was made during a video conference which was held earlier this Monday, and Minister Luhut added that the airport must implement all terms and conditions regarding quarantine, COVID-19 diagnostic test, and the preparedness of the task force.
The decision comes 2 weeks after the government lifted the ban on non-essential travel into Indonesia but only Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta and Sam Ratulangi Airport in Manado were allowed as the point of entry for international flights, causing some confusion. This announcement officially confirmed that international travellers will be able to directly fly to Bali from said countries, starting from mid October.
Travelers must book a hotel for quarantine before arrival
Travelers are required to present their vaccination certificate, valid negative PCR test result, and proof of booking at a hotel for the 8-day quarantine process upon arrival in Indonesia. After that, travelers must be quarantined for 8 days and undergo PCR testing during quarantine before eligible to receive a COVID-free statement letter. All quarantine expenses are paid by the traveler.
Foreigners who hold valid visit visas and temporary stay visas can enter Indonesia, while those who do not have one can apply online. The cost of visa application with an agent ranges between USD 350 to 500 depending on the services provided. Please contact us for more information on this.
