Arriving Air Passengers in Bali Required to Present “Negative” Result from PCR Swab Test Through 04 January 2021. (Note: Some reports mention 08 January 2020.)
In keeping with the Governor’s instructions, PT Angkasa Pura I, who manage Bali’s Airport, are now requiring all arriving domestic passengers to have a COVID-19 Swab Test certifying a “negative” result.
Meanwhile, air passengers departing Bali must present a “negative” certification obtained via a Rapid Test.
The head of Stakeholder Relations for Angkasa Pura, Taufan Yudihistira, told NusaBali that, in compliance with the Circular Memorandum issued by Bali’s Governor, Airport Authorities are requiring all arriving domestic passengers to show a “negative” test result from a PCR Swab Test performed within two days of their entry to the Island. The test certification requirement commences on 18 December 2020 and will remain in effect until 04 January 2021.
Editor’s Note: This regulation has now been revised to allow airport officials to accept test results conducted within two weeks of arrival in Bali.
Taufan explained that all arriving passengers must show a currently valid Swab Test and complete an Electronic Health Card (e-HAC). Departing passengers on domestic flights must present a less costly and more readily available Rapid Test. Passengers should note, however, the specific requirements of their desired destination when booking a flight.
Travelers to Bali need to note that a “negative” COVID-19 test result, using Rapid Tests or Swab Tests, remains valid for 14 days from the issuance date. Travelers must then retest for a new certificate valid for a further 14 days.
