Indonesia or Bali entry requirements 2023
These are the up to date entry requirements for Bali and Indonesia 2023.
Last updated on 03 July 2023
In order to enter Indonesia, you need a passport (not a temporary passport or travel document). Your passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months at the date of entry to Indonesia.
Return- or onward flight ticket (important)
At check-in for your flight to Indonesia, your airline might require proof of a return or onward ticket from Indonesia. Depending on your visa and the airline you are using, the return- or onward ticket should be within 30 days of your entry into Indonesia (Visa On Arrival) or within 60 days of entry into Indonesia (B211A). You might also be asked for the ticket upon entering Indonesia.
Customs Declaration (important)
You can either fill in the form upon arrival at the airport or save time by filling out the online form before departure. After finalizing this process, you will receive a QR code. On arrival in Indonesia, please show this QR code to customs officials.
Health check upon arrival (occasionally)
Upon arrival, international travelers may be required to undergo a health check related to COVID-19 symptoms (body temperature/blood oxygen saturation check). If you have no COVID-19 related symptoms and your body temperature is below 37.5 degrees Celsius, you can continue with your travel plans. These checks have become very rare since end of 2022.
If you have COVID-19 related symptoms and/or your body temperature is above 37.5 degrees Celsius, you are required to undergo an RT-PCR test at your own expense. In this case, you might be required to wait for the test result at your accommodation without any interaction with other people. If your result is negative, you can continue with your travel plans. If your result is positive and you have no symptoms or your symptoms are mild, you will carry out your isolation at a centralized quarantine accommodation at your own expense.
Previous requirements (no longer required)
Many people are confused about the constantly changing entry regulations for Indonesia. Is vaccination still required? Do I still need the SatuSehat app on my phone? Do I need a PCR test? I heard something about quarantine and that I need travel insurance, etc. The following list are outdated, no longer valid entry requirements for Indonesia. Please keep in mind that even if Indonesia no longer requires any of the following points, some airlines might have different regulations.
Covid-19 Vaccination (revoked June 2023 but some airlines might still require)
Travelers arriving in Indonesia no longer need to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
SatuSehat app (revoked June 2023)
Many people are checking the requirement for PCR-test, health insurance or travel insurance etc. when visiting Indonesia. Many websites are still not updated. We are listing these outdated requirements for the sake of completeness. Please understand that the following points are no longer required.
Negative RT-PCR test result (no longer required)
