Bali has scrapped its quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated international visitors, according to reports.

The announcement that Indonesian President Joko Widodo had agreed to implement the change this week came as a surprise as the country had not been expected to make any changes before April.

Reuters reports that, under a pilot programme, fully vaccinated tourists now can skip a mandatory three-day quarantine, though they need to remain on the island for four days.

It adds: “Luhut Pandjaitan, a minister overseeing the COVID-19 response in Java and Bali, told a news conference on Monday that if the Bali pilot programme went well, all foreign visitors entering Indonesia would no longer be required to quarantine from April 1 or earlier.”

Travellers from 23 countries including the UK can get a visa on arrival, and international visitors won’t have to quarantine if they are fully vaccinated and boosted, have a negative PCR test, and provide proof of a hotel booking paid for at least four days.

Foreign visitors must also take a PCR test on their third day in Bali and have health insurance that covers coronavirus infection.
