Insurance 

  • Must cover COVID ( Visa Exemption, VOA & B211A holders only ) 
  • We recommend travellers also purchase the Jaga Wisata travel insurance for only IDR500.000 in the event you test positive and need to move to an isolation hotel or medical facility. Many overseas travel insurance with COVID may not actually cover you in Bali. 
  • Ask your CHSE hotel/resort/villa if they offer COVID19 Jaga Wisata Insurance as an add on. What this means is that the accommodation provider will book and pay for your insurance and charge you the additional cost as part of booking your stay with them.
