Bali Governor, I Wayan Koster has predicted that thousands of international travelers will start coming in November 2021.
Despite reopening its border for international visitors by October 14th 2021, Koster admitted that the international terminal at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport hasn’t received any arrival schedules from international flights. “We haven’t seen any international arrivals for this week, and we’re still not sure about next week as well.” Koster said during a press conference on Thursday (14/10) at Bali Airport.
However, Koster is optimistic that the situation might change in the next few weeks as the central government has recently announced that Bali has reopened for more countries. “We’re optimistic that we could receive thousands of tourists in November as we’re now open for travelers from 19 different countries such as China, South Korea, India, France, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Norway and Spain that used to make a big contribution to our economy.” Koster added.
Koster hopes that the international terminal of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport will start to operate like normal by the end of October. “We’re expecting that our airport will start receiving international arrivals by the end of this month, as a sign that Bali tourism will be headed towards a better situation and the economy will recover from this crisis.” Koster concluded.
