Let’s cut to the chase: is it safe to plan a trip to this dreamy beach town? The short answer is yes!

Bali has gradually been opening its doors to international tourists since October 2021, keeping up to date with the necessary safety protocols as well as working on a Visa on Arrival (VOA) Program for selected countries. As of April 2022, the list of eligible travelers has extended to those from any of these 43 countries.

Aside from that, Indonesia also has a relatively high vaccination rate compared to the rest of the world. Bali in particular is the leading province with highest vaccination rates in the country, as well as the most number of establishments with Cleanliness, Health, Safety, and Environmental Sustainability (CHSE) Certifications.

I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar Airport, is one of two airports on the island of Bali; most international airlines can fly direct to Bali. Upon arrival, the following are required for entry, subject to change by the local government:

  • RT-PCR Examination Provisions*
  • PeduliLindungi (Indonesia’s digital contact tracing app)

From the airport, Berawa Beach is a 50-minute drive away. The good news? Fully-vaccinated travelers no longer need to quarantine—for as long as you’ve had your second dose at least 14 days before departure time. This means you’re welcome to go straight to your villa of choice, instead of a designated quarantine hotel.

Check your calendars make sure a few weeks between April to October are free, as these summer months are the best time to visit the Island of the Gods. Also known as the island’s dry season, calm seas, consistent waves, and pleasant, sunny weather are to be expected. Peak tourist season is from July to August, but if you’re not a big fan of crowds, there’s a little wiggle room from April to June or September to October for you to clear your schedule.

If you can’t squeeze in a few dates in those months, no need to panic! Bali is as beautiful as ever from October through March, though you might want to have a weather app handy then as these months usually see more rainfall. Make sure to double check your itinerary too, as outdoor activities like surfing, yachting, or hiking may have restricted mobility in case of rain.
