  • Nonsense, the Dutch have not needed a visa for Bali for years.
    You used to have Visa on Arrival, which has been abolished for years.

  • Quarantine means 3 days/2 nights locked up in a hotel room in jakarta in Bali you can only stay in the hotel
    Stay in the environment, PCR test is done 72 hours before departure, another test on arrival at the hotel, after 2 nights another 1x pcr test.

  • Good afternoon,

    Does anyone know anything more about what the quarantine will entail exactly? Do we really have to stay in our room for 3 days or are you allowed to use the hotel facilities, but not leave the hotel?

    And is it the intention that a PCR test has to be done before you can leave quarantine?

  • According to the local media here and the announcements from the central government, all international travelers will be welcome back to Bali from February 4, 2022. The quarantine period has currently been reduced from 7 to 5 days for fully vaccinated. Not fully vaccinated must be quarantined for 7 days. Only 5 hotels have been designated as quarantine hotels at the moment. There are also conditions that travelers must meet. See the article at balidiscovery.com For example, that an e-visa must be applied for and not upon arrival at the airport.

  • You always need a visa !! For 30 days you can buy a visa on arrival at the airport in Bali !! Ask Tui!!

  • Good morning!

    We have also seen these messages pass by and immediately booked our honeymoon through Tui. We will fly there on May 23 and back on June 17. For now we have only booked a hotel for the first three nights. But this one is not listed with the quarantine hotels. TUI also says nothing about a possible visa. We also fly with Emirates with a stopover in Dubai.

    We are curious whether this booking can be carried out.
