Can’t wait for your vacation to Bali or chill out at the pinky sandy beach in Komodo Island that has been on hold due to the pandemic? At this point, foreign visitors remain barred from entering or transiting in Indonesia with view exceptions.

The COVID-19 outbreak has hurt Indonesia’s travel sector and caused a significant blow to its national revenue. According to Ida Bagus Agung Partha Adnyana, head of the Bali Tourism Board, tourism in Bali alone has contributed billions of dollars in revenue, a critical part of its economy. Therefore, Indonesia is actively evaluating when to reopen Bali and other tourist destinations to foreign visitors; however, curbing the coronavirus spread has a higher priority than the economy.

Bali has re-opened for domestic tourists, but not to foreign visitors yet. Indonesia would most likely remain closed to foreign tourists and non-essential international visitors at least until the end of this year.
