Emergency visa Regulation bali

As A Foreigner, Can You Travel To Bali? Information about travel regulations

As mentioned above, there are no flights available at the moment, but a soon as they get rid of the restrictions the first ones that are going to be able to fly to Bali will be:

  1. Foreigners who hold temporary Stay Permit (KITAS) or permanent Stay Permit (KITAP)
  2. Medical, food and humanitarian aid support workers
  3. Foreigners who hold Indonesian Diplomatic Visa or Service Visa
  4. Crews for transportation
  5. Foreigners who hold Indonesian Diplomatic Stay Permit or Service Stay Permit
  6. People whose travels are associated with essential work for national strategic projects such as infrastructure or construction

Following requirements will be asked:

  1. A negative PCR test result, issued within 7 days of arrival 
  2. Foreigners must have stayed for 14 days in areas which are not affected by Corona outbreak before entering (provide immigration stamp or boarding pass as evidence)
  3. Statement of willingness to enter quarantine for 14 days in facilities provided by the Indonesian government

Visa On Arrival (VOA) and Free Entries are suspended since March 20th, 2020, until further notice.

What about the foreigners in emergency visas? Permit extensions

The immigration office granted automatic and free stay permit extensions (emergency visas) to all the tourists and foreigners with a visitor stay permit (B211/212) or visa on arrival (VOA) who couldn’t return to their country due to Covid-19 outbreak, on April 2nd of 2020.

Many foreigners that live here have been worrying about the end of these emergency visas. They think that they may be forced to leave and not be able to come back until the visa on arrival and (B211/212) are working as usual. Ths foreigners that were on holiday are afraid that they’ll be forced to leave before their country is open. All these worries have also been fed by agencies trying to make people do their extensions that were no longer needed to get their commissions.

For the right information, always check the immigration website. The official report says that Emergency Stay Permit is valid until the pandemic is over. As long as the Regulation of Minister of Law and Human Rights of Republic of Indonesia Number 11 of 2020, is in place, no overstay fine will be applied for foreigners.
