Many people have been asking me if they can still come to Bali. This is the official announcement from immigration. The Indonesian language version is posted below.

Basically from today, the free Visa on Arrival (VOA) that most tourists get when they visit Indonesia will be suspended. If you want to still visit Bali you need to apply for a visa from your own country from an Indonesian consulate or embassy. You also need to provide a health certificate issued by a relevant health authority from your country.

The ban also restricts people who have traveled to the following countries in the last 14 days:

  • Iran
  • Italy
  • The Vatican
  • Spain
  • France
  • Germany
  • Switzerland
  • United Kingdom

There is already a restriction for anyone traveling from China or South Korea.

The Indonesian government has requested its citizens traveling abroad to return to Indonesia. Anyone who has visited the affected countries may undergo additional health screening and possible quarantine.
