Government scraps mandatory Covid-19 Vaccine requirements for Bali tourists
The latest government announcement issued on June 9th, 2023 states that showing a certificate of the COVID-19 vaccine is no longer required. Previously, it was mandatory for all foreigners and domestic travellers to show a certificate confirming a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. With the latest news announcement, this requirement is no longer mandatory.
Most of the Covid-19 restrictions have been removed slowly and steadily since international borders reopened in February 2022. The removal of the mandatory Covid-19 vaccine for international travellers is the final step in allowing everyone back to their favourite island
So, to be clear;
Unvaccinated travellers are now permitted to enter Indonesia and travel domestically within Indonesia.
Unvaccinated domestic travellers are permitted to travel by air within the country.
This is huge news for international travellers who have been waiting for the vaccination requirement to be scrapped in order to book their visit to Bali.
There have been rumours circulating online that immigration officials had stopped checking vaccination status upon arrival in Indonesia, but it is only this week that the law has been changed officially!
This also means that airlines won’t be checking vaccination status at the point of departure.
Bali is fast approaching the peak holiday season that will see tens of thousands of international people through the airport gates. New data is showing that holiday-makers from Australia remain the most frequent international visitors to Bali, with 109,875 Australian passport holders stamped into Bali last month alone.
Currently, there are currently close to 200 flights from Australian cities flying to Bali each week now, which is a significant increase on pre-covid flight numbers.
We are so happy we can continue to share our Bali Island with everyone x
