On January 1, 2014, the Province of Bali formally promulgated its new law on smoke-free zones (Peraturan Daerah Bali Nomor 10 Tahun 2011 Tentang Kawasan Tanpa Rokok).

The new law provides for penalties of 3 months detention or fines of Rp. 50,000 for those guilty of smoking in prohibited places and managers of venues that allow such activity.

Among the areas where it is now illegal to smoke in Bali are:

  • Medical facilities, including:
  • Hospitals
  • Maternity and birthing centers
  • Polyclinics 
  • Public health centers
  • Medication centers (Balai pengobatan)
  • Laboratories
  • Inoculation centers (Posyandu)
  • Private medical practices
  • Places of education, including:
  • Schools
  • Places of higher education
  • Training and education centers
  • Job training centers
  • Study and tutoring centers
  • Private course centers
  • Recreational areas for children, including:
  • Play groups
  • Child-care centers
  • Pre-school centers
  • Kindergartens 
  • Places of worship, including:
  • Balinese temples or pura
  • Mosques and Islamic Prayer rooms (mushola)
  • Churches
  • Buddhist Temples (Vihara)
  • Chinese Temples (Klenteng)
  • Public transport, including:
  • Public buses
  • Taxis 
  • City transport including tourist buses, public transport buses such as the Sarbagita bus system, school buses and company staff buses.
  • Work places or places of employment, including:
  • Government offices
  • Police and Military offices
  • Private company offices
  • Industrial sites

  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Recreational places
  • Bus stops
  • Public transport terminals
  • Goods and cargo terminals
  • Seaports and Airports
At their option, managers of public places may provide special areas for smokers. These areas, however, must be either outdoor spaces or enclosed areas well separated from pedestrian traffic areas, non-smoking areas and public entrances.

Under the rules, managers and those responsible for the smoke free area are required by law to supervise smoke-free areas, enforce non-smoking provisions of the law, NOT place ashtrays and other smoking accessories in non-smoking areas and install “no smoking” signs in the areas stipulated as smoke-free under the law.

It is also now also illegal to promote or sell tobacco products in areas stipulated as smoke-free zones under the law.

The new law also encourages the public to participate in the establishment and enforcement of smoke-free zones by helping to prepare smoking areas and lounges; educating the public on the non-smoking rules; reminding people found violating the smoke-free zone rules; and report violators of the smoke-free zone law to those responsible for maintaining smoke-free zones.

The law empowers the Indonesian police to investigate complaints regarding all failures to enforce or obey the smoke-free zone rules. This includes investigation, interrogation and the collection of evidence in connection with any supposed violation. 

Under the law, the manager of a smoke-free zone who allows smoking in these areas is also subject to prosecution. The penalty of Rp. 50,000 (US$4) or 3 months in prison can be applied against individuals caught smoking in non-smoking area and those in charge of locations and venues failing to enforce the non-smoking regulations.
