Oh, to live that Bali life, eh? As the Island of the Gods begins to wake up after a period of hibernation due to the pandemic, an increasing number of travelers are traveling here from abroad to get a part of the island experience.
Obviously you want to keep up with the latest rules for entering Bali via Ngurah Rai International Airport and make sure you check all the boxes before boarding your flight (remember Murphy’s Law?).
Yesterday, Bali Airport uploaded the latest rules for international travelers, according to the Ministry of Transport Regulation No. 71/2022. And since we want to see you get here safe and sound, we want to make all the rules here.
The rules are set to go into effect on July 17.
here we are:
- Prepare your airline ticket (not to make the obvious, but, again, Murphy’s Law)
- Make sure all your documents (such as ID, passport and visa) are valid. You may close your eyes to this, but in March, there was An Australian woman couldn’t get on a plane to Bali because her passport was rotten. So make sure all your documents are in good condition
- Prepare your COVID-19 vaccination documents, whether they are hard copies or soft copies. Although it’s just a suggestion, make sure you have both, just in case.
