After inspecting the Immigration Checkpoints, Kosmas reviewed the Health Checking and Quarantine House in Ngurah Rai International Airport.

The central government requires all prevention protocols be actively in place before resuming operations. Until now, Ngurah Rai International Airport has only been operating the domestic terminal. All international flights have been transiting at Soekarno Hatta International Airport in Jakarta.
