The Indonesian government waived the mandatory quarantine for fully vaccinated international visitors to Bali on March 7, 2022, according to Jakarta Post.
Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno expressed hope that the new policy would help revive Bali’s tourism and create new economic opportunities for locals.
“It’s official, as instructed by President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo, Bali is launching a quarantine-free travel trial for international travellers who have been fully vaccinated or have received booster shots, starting on March 7,” Sandiaga wrote on Instagram. “We’re optimistic that [the new policy] will bring more job and business opportunities for residents.”
