Bali was therefore one of the first territories to gradually reopen to tourism. Foreign tourists are still not authorized to come to Bali but more and more foreigners are though traveling to Bali with a visitor visa (previously called business visa), pretty easy to obtain with an agent for less than 4 million rupiah. But anyone coming to Indonesia from abroad needs to spend a 8 day quarantine in Jakarta in one of the hotels approved by the indonesian authorities. I can send the list of approved hotel to anyone interested, send me an email !

    We want to go to Nusa Penida on February 14th 2021, but do not dare to book hotels and boat tickets, afraid to loose our money if we cannot leave Sanur by fast boat. Can we reach Nusa Penida on this date and come back a week later???

      Hello Frans,
      There are every day more than 9 fast boat companies operating daily 12 fast boats from Sanur and 8 fast boats from Kusamba. I don’t see any reason why you could not reach Nusa Penida and come back.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your information about Nusa Penida.
    Particularly that they have low covid numbers on the island 🙏🏼
    I’d like to rebook my flight (with all the visa and quarantine arrangements already in place). What do you think of spending a few very low key months on Nusa Penida now?
    Looking for some reassurance to go ahead I guess.
    Thank you for any advise.

    • Hello Lorri,
      I have been staying on Nusa Penida since august and it is perfect for a low key stay. It seems we are getting out of the rain season now so it is really great.
