Bali is Opening to Tourists in 2021 – Here’s Everything You Need to Know
I know so many of you had trips planned to Bali this year and my heart breaks right with you that those plans have all been thrown out the window. As you guys know, Bali is my second home (though I’ve been quarantined in the US) and I personally cannot wait to get back to the island. Bali will reopen, as of now, January 1, 2021.
Please, before reading this article, keep in mind that things with COVID are extremely FLUID, and these things can still change (he can decide to allow tourists sooner, later, that testing is required, anything). I will try to keep you all updated as much as possible but check with your own country’s government regulations before booking your trip.
As I’ve said before when answering the question of When Can We Travel Again?, it’s important to keep a close watch on government protocols as the rules and regulations can change very quickly. Keep your travel plans FLEXIBLE if you are planning a trip to Bali in 2021. However, I hope this news of Bali’s reopening can help some of you currently planning 2021 and 2022 travels and honeymoons to Bali to feel comfortable in starting to plan (and get excited for!) your Bali trip.
How can I be a responsible traveler when traveling to Bali amidst COVID-19?
If you are planning on traveling to Bali in 2021, please, please, do so in a way that is safe for yourself and for the island you are visiting. Just because it’s a tourism island does not mean the virus doesn’t spread just as easily there. Stay away from indoor restaurants, large group gatherings, and make sure you wear a mask (I have the cutest masks to buy for travel here) and bring lots of travel hand sanitizer. We need to do everything we can to protect the vulnerable locals of Bali.
