As The Bali Sun previously reported Bali Governor, I Wayan Koster has revised the entry requirements for domestic visitors by revoking the breathalyzer test during the extended partial lockdown in Bali. The policy that was initiated by the central government is implemented to prevent Covid-19 transmissions from surging before Bali finally reopens its border to the international visitors.

Prior to the new policy, the Bali Airport had been receiving around 8 thousand visitors each day, but it is expected to decline in the near future. Taufan predicted a 30 to 40 % reduction of domestic visitors during the implementation of the new policy. “We don’t really know why those airline companies decided to cancel their planned flights tomorrow, but it’s the same day as the new implementation begins. And Bali is expected to lose around 6,000 visitors each day.” Taufan concluded.
