The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in major changes to how we travel. If you’re planning a vacation in Bali, the following tips will help you navigate this new traveling reality:
- Investigate if any travel restrictions apply to your origin and destination before booking anything. Also check if there are any requirements you’ll need to follow on arrival, such as mandatory quarantining.
- Wear a face mask during airport screening. A TSA officer will ask you to lower your mask temporarily for identification purposes.
- Instead of handing a TSA employee your boarding pass, position it directly on the reader yourself. Once that’s done, hold it up for inspection.
- One liquid hand sanitizer container is now permitted in your carry-on luggage. It must be no bigger than 12 oz (350 ml), and you’ll have to take it out of your bag for scanning.
- Empty your personal items from your pockets, such as your wallet, phone and small change, and place them in your carry-on instead of into bins. This will reduce handling during the screening process.
- If you want to take food through the screening checkpoint, put it in a clear plastic bag and then into a scanning bin. This reduces the likelihood that a TSA agent will need to handle your food container or carry-on bag for closer inspection.
