Published on : Thursday, September 16, 2021

Bali’s tourism industry is hoping for businesses to recover after Covid-19 social restrictions were eased in the resort island on Monday (Sept 13), and the government beginning to frame plans to resume foreign travel.

Covid cases in Indonesia declined significantly in the past month after peaking in mid-July.

Indonesian Tourism Minister Sandiaga Uno said that his ministry ismaking plans for reopening to foreign tourists, although the timing has not been finalized yet.

Bali would allow a limited number of fully vaccinated foreign tourists from low-risk countries to visit without having to quarantine upon arrival.Malaysia and Vietnam are also looking to open up tourist havens to travel bubbles, including the islands of Langkawi and PhuQuoc.

Sandiaga said that tourism areas should reach vaccination rates of 70 per cent before reopening. He also suggested a regional collaboration to form a Phuket, Langkawi and Bali tourism “triangle.”

More than 66 per cent of people on Bali are fully vaccinated, as per data from the country’s health ministry.
The locals of Bali, whose livelihoods were affected during the pandemic, are keen for the reopening.
