Do I Need COVID-19 Booster Vaccination To Enter Bali?

There are a lot of rumours circulating that as of 18th July 2022 it is necessary to have received a booster of the COVID-19 vaccination. These rumours are not correct.

You can read the current regulations here in Indonesian or here in unofficial English translation. These state that it is still only necessary to have received your second vaccination at least 14 days prior to travel. The Indonesian government has not updated their policy on what counts as fully vaccinated so it is still two shots of Moderna or Astrazenica or one shot of the single dose vaccines such as Johnson & Johnson.

If your temperature is above 37.5 you will need to take a PT-PCR test.

Key Facts about the B211 Visa


The initial visa validity is 60 days.

You can then extend the visa 2 x for 60 days each time, so the maximum visa validity is 180 days (these days include the day you land and leave.)

Each extension needs to be applied for at least 7 business days before your visa validity expires and costs IDR 2,750,000 per extension.

If you leave Indonesia before your visa is expired, your visa will be voided and you will have to get a new one if you wish to return to Indonesia.

About the B211 Visa for Bali, Indonesia


The B211 Visit Visa is often referred to as the Business Visa when purchased offshore, or the Social Visa when purchased onshore. It is a single entry eVisa delivered online, so there is no need for you to visit the consulate or embassy to get it. The B211 Visit Visa becomes void when you leave Indonesia.

The new regulation states the initial validity of the B211 visa for Bali is 60 days for both onshore and offshore applications. It is possible to extend the visa a maximum of 2 x and each extension is 60 days. So the maximum validity possible for the visa is 180 days.

Alternatively, the regulations state it is now possible to get a 180 day B211 Visit Visa that you do not need to extend. At the end of 180 days, you cannot extend it, you must buy a new visa. However, we are still waiting for the application system to update to allow this option.
