Indonesia to trial Australia to Bali travel quarantine free from March 14th.
It’s about to get a lot easier for Australians to travel to Bali without having to enter hotel quarantine.
While we can’t all go rushing to book our flights and hotel stays just yet – the quarantine travel will start as a trial with vaccinated visitors able to avoid entering hotel quarantine upon arrival and, according to local media, the Visa On Arrival program will make a return.
On March 14, Jetstar will also restart direct flights to Denpasar and those who have received full vaccination will be required to undertake a PCR test upon entry and wait in their hotel room until they receive their negative result (should be less than 24 hours). Once a negative result is produced you will then be “free” to go out and explore Bali.
There is however a couple of other conditions of entry.
Proof of at least four nights booking will need to be shown upon entry – which would no doubt be easy for many travelling to Bali.
A PCR test will also need to be taken on day three after their arrival.
Plus of course, travellers will need to show proof they have received a full vaccine against Covid-19.
For travellers who are not vaccinated will be required to quarantine for seven days and take a PCR test no longer than 48 hours before departure, one on arrival and one on day three of their quarantine.
The Australia to Bali travel announcement is also hot off the heals of Australia to Singapore quarantine free travel via dedicated Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights.
