KOMPAS.com – Before flying to Bali, there are some travel restrictions you must heed as part of the provincial government’s new normal regulations for tourists.
In 2020, the Balinese government will focus on attracting domestic tourists as plans of allowing foreigners will have to temporarily be postponed.
To make up for this change in strategy, the government has been pushing several campaigns showcasing its beaches, lakes, waterfalls, paddy fields, and nature attractions.

Despite the goal of luring in more tourists from Indonesia, there are travel restrictions in Bali which are enforced.
The new normal regulations are controlled by the Bali Governor Decree Number 15243 Year 2020 concerning Domestic Tourist Requirements when Visiting Bali. Kompas.com has listed the terms for you.
Proof of rapid or swab test
To enter the island, all travelers must present proof of a negative PCR test result or a non-reactive rapid test from an authorized institution.
The test results cannot be older than 14 days since the first date of issue and this proof must be shown to the authorities at the airport and ports.
If a traveler’s test result comes back as reactive, then they will be required to undergo a swab PCR test in Bali and self-quarantine at a designated place chosen by the Bali Provincial Government while waiting for that result.
