If you’re planning to spend the year-end holiday in Bali, it’s best to note that domestic tourists flying into Ngurah Rai International Airport are now required to present a negative PCR test result, according to a new circular issued by the provincial government.
The latest update, issued today, comes as officials expect more domestic travelers to visit Bali in time for Christmas and the New Year, while COVID-19 cases are still on the rise in the province and throughout Indonesia.
Instead of prohibiting travel altogether to curb coronavirus transmissions, the government has decided to add some new requirements. This includes negative PCR test results for all air travelers and negative rapid test results for travelers who use other modes of transport to enter Bali.
The new circular, which also includes other provisions for year-end celebrations, will come into effect this Friday and last until Jan. 4, 2021.
