Bali not opening to foreign tourists this month

Published on : Tuesday, December 1, 2020

As the world has started to gradually reopen in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, there was a recent buzz that Bali is all set to welcome visitors from all across the globe starting from December 1, which is its peak tourism season. However, much to the dismay of travelers Bali Deputy Governor Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati has announced that no such plans are being entertained at the moment.


Deputy Governor Sukawati said in his statement that Bali has no plans to open (tours for foreign tourists) on December 1 and is most likely to reopen for international travelers sometime early next year. This is certainly not the first speculations of similar nature have happened, with the same rumors floating around previously as well. Considered to be one of the most popular destinations in Asia, Bali has remained closed to foreign tourists for most of the year to prevent further risk of the COVID-19 outbreak.


At present, Bali is open only to domestic tourists and is trying to revive its tourism industry with many promotional offers to boost domestic travel. It reopened to domestic tourism in July after staying in a self-imposed lockdown early in the year. Now, the government has exempted 13 airports from airport tax to further boost travelling for the locals. Staycations are also being promoted to lure more visitors. Moreover, the holiday season has also warmed up domestic travel, and might just be the silver lining to end the year on a better note.
