The Head of the Bali Tourism Board (BTB), Ida Bagus Agung Partha Adnyana said that the preparation stages of reopening the international travel corridor which includes distributing the Covid-19 vaccine is about to finish, and Bali will begin to receive an increase of international visitors in the near future. “The vaccination process in three appointed green zone areas is almost done, so we hope herd immunity will be achieved in the near future.” Adnyana said on Thursday (8/4).

According to his analysis, he predicts that Bali will receive at least 1.5 million international tourists when the border reopens. “When the border reopens, we can’t expect the situation to be back to normal again. So we will probably only receive around 1.5 million visitors at the beginning.” Adnyana added. His prediction was based on data from a Travel Agency that brought around 10,000 visitors before the pandemic struck. “I predicted that in 2021, we will only receive 10% of the average amount of visitors prior to the pandemic. But that’s not a big deal as it will take some time to bring the situation back to normal again.” Adnyana concluded.

He also mentioned that Bali could recover even faster if the Australian and the Chinese governments start to allow their citizens to travel overseas, but apparently none of those countries will lift their travel restriction anytime soon. Adnyana also urged the government to begin some political communications with countries like China to find a solution, as most of Chinese people are predicted to still be reluctant to travel when restrictions are lifted because they’re required to undergo 24 days of quarantine once they return from their travels.

Bwa ha Ha ha! More ignorant men 'predicting' and creating false hopes. Jokowi and his heath minister will decide when Bali opens. Don't expect Australians any time soon Th Austraian International border is now closed for months.

Bali will not be safe for international tourists until domestic tourism is better controlled. Pointless vaccinating local Bali residents of local tourism continues to be mismanaged

@Paul W, mind you that there are some expats in Indonesia particularly in Bali who may not follow health protocol guidelines. If people are on the same page it may work to make a safer place for everyone involved.

Although there are developed nations with conditions that are far worse than Indonesia because of their attitudes with this pandemic. Let alone anti-vaxxers because of their political reasoning/affiliation/nationalism and some others with evangelical Christian values. This could make more delays with the inoculation roll out elsewhere. Tourism worldwide could be more affected in the long run.

Although there are developed nations with conditions far worse than Indonesia because of their attitudes with this pandemic. Let alone anti-vaxxers because of their political reasoning and some others with evangelical Christian nonesense. This make the rest of the US for example more vulnerable with the inoculation roll out. Sighs.
