Meanwhile, the General Manager of Ngurah Rai Airport, Herry AY Sikado said that 5,000 airport staff have already been vaccinated on Monday (22/3).

He explained that several countries that could open a travel bubble with Bali such as the Netherlands, South Korea, Singapore, China, and UAE already conducted several assessments of Ngurah Rai airport to assure the safety of their citizens before allowing them to travel to Bali.

“We already prepared a better procedure to receive the international visitors, so each traveler will take an estimated 24 minutes to get out of the airport through a strict implementation of prevention protocols,” Sikado concluded.
