On 4 October 2021, Bali Government officials announced that Bali Ngurah Rai Airport in Denpasar will reopen to international flights from pre-countries from mid-October 2021. Whilst no flights actually landed from that time, on 28 January 2022, Singapore Airlines announced that they will resume flights direct to Bali with the first flight SQ 938 landing in Bali on Wednesday 16 February 2022.
The announcement that Bali reopens comes almost two years after the airport closed to international arrivals due to Covid-19 which has all but decimated tourism on the island and globally. All residents of Bali have worked together tirelessly during this time, implementing strict cleanliness, health and safety protocols. Hotels adhering to these new measures – the CHSE certification, granted by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy – will be in a favourable position to welcome tourists again.
Update as of 7 April 2022:
As of 7 April 2022, a PCR test upon arrival at the airport is no longer required.
International travellers on direct flights arriving in Bali will be required to follow the following arrival protocols:
- Return Ticket for Foreign National Passport holders with a tourism eVisa or an Indonesian Passport for Indonesians travelling for tourism.
- Foreign Nationals with the following valid visa: B211A tourist visit eVisa with travel company guarantor.
- Proof (physical or digital) of full vaccination at least 14 days prior to departure
- Indonesian citizens (WNI) and foreign nationals (WNA) who enter Indonesia must have received a complete dose.
