Below is the official Instagram announcement from Bali Airport. Please note, that official English text has not been made at this time so we summarized the key points above.
Information is from Surat Edaran Gubernur Bali Nomor 08 Tahun 2021. You may see the announcement on the official Bali airport Instagram page: Baliairport (Indonesian Version only at time of writing).
Additionally, President Jokowi will lead internal meetings on Tuesday 30th June to discuss nationwide measures regarding domestic travel, with sources advising that domestic air travel may only be available for people who have been vaccinated or that can produce negative PCR tests.
At this time, it is not clear as to whether these tighter restrictions will apply to all of Indonesia or applicable to the “red zones” such as Jakarta, parts of Yogyakarta, regions of Kudus, Bangkalan, Bandung & Riau in Sumatra.
