Good News: Bali Enters Partial Lockdown – PPKM Level 3 to 20 September 2021

14 September 2021

Monday (13/9) evening, the central government of Indonesia announced that the implementation of Partial Lockdown (PPKM) status for Bali had dropped from Level 4 to Level 3. This regulation is valid from Tuesday (14/9) to Sunday (20/9).

The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan conveyed that PPKM throughout Java, Bali and other regions will continue to be enforced to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19. Weekly evaluations are also done accurately to monitor the current situation and avoid repeating the same incident in the future.

Luhut also explained that in this seventh extension of PPKM, tourist attractions are allowed to open in PPKM Level 3 areas with strict health protocols and compulsory login using the PeduliLindungi application. 

Cinemas in PPKM Level 3 and 2 regions will also be allowed to open at 50% capacity, with strict health protocols and compulsory login via the PeduliLindungi application. Only those who have been vaccinated are allowed to enter the malls and cinemas. 

Currently, the development of cases in Indonesia continues to show significant improvements. It can be seen from the declining trend of national confirmation cases to 93.9%, and specifically, in Java-Bali, it fell to 96% from the peak point on 15 July 2021.

We have received many emails asking for confirmation on the reopening of Bali – Indonesia, as some visa agents are already promoting their services online. However, the government has not lifted the international travel restriction officially. Per Tuesday, 14 September 2021, foreign nationals can not enter using e-visa or e-vitas to Indonesia; ONLY the holders of valid KITAS, KITAP and Diplomat visas can enter the country. If you wish to be notified once this restriction is lifted, please register your email address in the pop-ups which appear on our homepage or other corona related pages.
