Share The Article

Officials from the Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport have conducted a simulation as part of the preparation stages before operating its international terminal again in the near future.

The General Manager of Angkasa Pura I Ltd for Bali I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, Herry A.Y. Sikado confirmed that the management of the Bali Airport has simulated a new procedure in handling international travelers at the airport facility on Saturday (9/10) when the international travel corridor reopens on October 14th 2021 as recently announced by the Indonesian Tourism Minister.

“As a response to the implementation of the travel bubble program from the central government recently, we decided to conduct an operating simulation today.” Sikado said on Saturday. During the simulation that began at 10:25am, officials simulated a flight that departed from Incheon International Airport in South Korea to arrive at Bali Ngurah Rai Airport using Garuda Airlines, along with a total of 90 passengers. He explained that each passenger is required to pass several screening processes upon their arrivals.

“The airport’s official will do several checks such as their temperature, health documents, conduct a PCR test, look over immigrations documents, and customs once they land at the Bali Airport before finally getting transported to the selected hotels to undergo 8 days of quarantine as one of the entry requirements.” Sikado added.

Sikado also hopes that this will be a good start for the Bali tourism sector to finally recover after being paralyzed for over 1.5 years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “The airport is our main entrance for travelers to get in, so we have to keep compliance with strict prevention protocols during our operation and hope that Bali tourism can recover like it used to be.” Sikado concluded.

This government has reduced the quarantine period to 5 days now. It's been on the International news.

Nonetheless few countries in the EU (excluded UK) still ask some countries from a high risk area to be quarantined under close supervision. UK has reduced to 7 countries on the red list. However there may be a catch to the other nations that may enter the UK now. Some UK residents from abroad have already complained that their approved vaccines done outside the UK may now be unacceptable to enter therefore unnecessary quarantine may be imposed for some.

Some of you may rant and rave about the quarantine period in Bali. Two reasons because either you are not vaccinated or feel that a developing sovereign country like Indonesia should not impose such measures on visitors from developed nations.

It is understandable that many of us had limited vacation time off but the rules are the rules of another sovereign nation. Like it or not.

the authorities have to put the quarantine time down to 2 days if Bali is to ever recover from the pandemic ... Two days with tests on both days is enough to ensure the welfare of the people here... and will assure that the tourists will come back here in large numbers..of course this relies upon the visitors testing negative on BOTH tests
