What is still required?

  • A negative PCR test 48 hours before your departure to Bali

  • Health insurance with specific COVID coverage

  • Proof of vaccination or exemption or recovery certificate

  • Quarantine in a CHSE hotel/resort/villa still applies to international arrivals who test positive or are not fully vaccinated


What is a recovery certificate?

If you have been confirmed positive for COVID-19 a maximum of 30 days before departure, and you have been declared inactive in transmitting COVID-19, an exception is made from the obligation to show a COVID-19 vaccination card/certificate and a negative RT-PCR result before departure. This is only on condition that you agree to a PCR upon arrival and attach a doctor's certificate or COVID-19 recovery certificate from the Government Hospital of the country of departure, or the ministry that carries out government affairs in the health sector in the country of departure, stating that the person concerned is no longer actively transmitting COVID-19.
