Share The Article

Bali Governor, I Wayan Koster proposes the central government reduce quarantine time for international visitors in Bali.

As part of the entry requirements for Bali international visitors, Bali provincial government admits that the current quarantine policy has caused reluctance for potential international visitors to start traveling to Bali. As a result, the Bali Governor plans to propose the central government reduce the quarantine time to only 1 day in order to help revive Bali’s economy from the crisis.

“As long as our visitors are fully vaccinated and test negative upon their arrival, I don’t think that quarantine is still necessary. But I’ll propose to the central government to reduce the quarantine time to only 1 day.” Koster said when welcoming the new Indonesian Ambassador candidates for 15 different countries on Thursday (11/11).

Koster also asked those candidates to help him promote Bali tourism during their job in those selected countries. “I kindly ask all the new ambassadors to help us promote our tourism as part of the effort to revive Bali’s tourism as well as the economy,” Koster added. 

Meanwhile, when Koster was asked about his latest statement regarding 20,000 international visitors that were expected to arrive in November 2021 as The Bali Sun previously reported, he explained that some visitors were scheduled to come to Bali with Garuda Airlines this month.

“I was informed by Garuda Airlines that Japanese visitors will start coming in November, but I have no idea about their exact dates,” Koster concluded.

Indonesia needs to open its borders to the U.S. U.S. citizens constitute the majority of travelers to Thailand since it eased its border restrictions. Hopefully, Indonesia will follow Thailand's lead.

Get rid of the visa, its shocking to meany thing,s to do and a lot of money, if we are fully vaxed, and take a test that,s enough

Mr. Koster you're finally getting the message. A 1 day quarantine is doable though no quarantine would be optimal. Just allow fully vaccinated (not partially vaccinated) with a negative PCR test result before departure and upon arrival another negative PCR test result and do away with your eVisa fees. VOA is what will revive international tourism and expand your list of eligible countries. The longer you put this off the more the local economy suffers. Now get with the program.

Governor why do you want to reduce the quarantine time to 1 day , 2 weeks ago you announced that there were 20,000 yes 20,0000 hotel bookings from International tourists for November and guess what still no tourists have arrived and no planes are booked to land at Denpasar airport this month. Lots of people I know have already booked to go to other destinations because of the lack of a clear plan from your government to allow tourists back into Bali if you don’t come up with a concrete plan soon it won’t matter what rules are in place no one will be coming which is a shame for the Balinese people who have suffered so much since the start of the pandemic under your watch.

The Bird Market must be closed immediately, and all animals should be liberated. Denpasar’s Bird Market is shame for Bali and Indonesia.
