Indonesia will allow quarantine-free entry for foreigners traveling to Bali starting March 7, bringing forward the plan by a week.
Visitors from 23 countries, including the U.S., U.K. and Australia, can get a visa on arrival as long as they are fully vaccinated and test negative for Covid-19 prior to departure, Bali Governor Wayan Koster said in a notice on Friday. They will be tested again upon arrival on the island, with those positive for the virus required to isolate in a hotel or hospital until a follow-up swab on the third day.
They must also have health insurance with Covid-19 coverage.
Southeast Asia’s biggest economy is gradually easing restrictions, following some other countries in the region in preparing to live with the coronavirus even as infections continue to spread nationwide.
