When will Bali be open for international tourism?

Indonesia has closed its borders for international tourists since April 2020 There is no new date when they expect Bali to re-open. 

Of course our prayers go out to everyone in Indonesia to be safe and healthy. And hearts are hopeful for the people in Bali, as their work and income is highly affected with borders still being closed.

Please note we are not an official authority, so please contact your local embassy, visa agent or airline for more information.  

Are restaurants, spa's and beaches open?

Officially venues and beaches are open at the moment. 

How is life in Bali right now?

Hotels and villas are getting more guests again due to domestic travel. The local economy is still in crisis and the majority of the people in Bali are unemployed and rely on food supplies provided by their local communities and initiatives.
