Do not travel

If youโ€™re an Australian tourist in Bali (or Indonesia more broadly) leave now โ€“ donโ€™t delay your departure. If youโ€™re a long-term Australian resident of Indonesia, consider whether you have the support and access to effective health services you and your family will need in what will be a hugely challenging period for local authorities and service providers. Many services will not be available. Flight options to Australia are rapidly decreasing as airlines reduce flights or cease them altogether. Qantas flights ceased on 25 March. The risk of COVID-19 transmission is increasing rapidly in Indonesia. Transmission has now spread widely across the archipelago to most provinces, including Bali, and Jakarta which currently has the largest number of confirmed cases.
