Bali reopens to Australia, but with certain conditions

Bali has reopened to Australians, but there’s a catch. Travellers will need quarantine in a beachfront luxury resort, where you can wine, dine and swim freely.

Pack your bags, Adelaide! Bali has officially reopened to fully vaccinated Australians – but with a catch.

You’ll still have to undertake five days of hotel quarantine before you can gallivant around the island.

But the reality of hotel quarantine is a little different from what Australians may be used to. Travellers arriving in Bali will spend their quarantine period at a luxury beachfront resort in either Ubud, Nusa Dua, Sanur or Jimbaran.

So while most of us jetting off to Ubud are doing so to relax poolside, this time getting some well-deserved R&R will be required. The resorts have been designed as ‘quarantine bubbles’ – meaning you won’t be confined in your room for five days.

Instead, guests can roam throughout the five-star hotels and use the facilities, including the gym, outdoor pools, bars and restaurants.

Travellers must also provide a negative PCR test 48 hours before departure when they land at the airport and on day four of their luxury hotel stay. You’ll also have to provide proof that your travel insurance exceeds $35,000AUD and obtain a tourist visa before departure.

QR check-ins will also become the regular, with shops, restaurants and even the iconic Kuta Beach requiring tropical holiday-goers to check-in before catching a wave.

With Bali reopening to Australian travellers and tourists who have received at least two doses of a COVID-19 vaccination, we’re sure everyone is itching to pack their bathers and book their tickets.

However, direct flights from Australia to Bali are yet to take off. Jetstar has opened several tentative, yet incredible, cheap flights to the holiday destination from March 1, with Qantas set to resume their flights later that month.
