During a press conference at the Bali Communication and Statistics Agency Office on Thursday (17/12), Bali Regional Secretary, Dewa Made Indra, confirmed that the central government is closely supervising the preparation stage.

“Signs of reopening the border to international tourists are clearer, especially since several ministers have recently inspected implementation of protocols in Bali” Made Indra said.

Recently, the Indonesian Transportation Minister, Foreign Affairs Minister, Law and Human Rights Minister and other government officials inspected the Ngurah Rai International Airport and Garuda Wisnu Kencana Park.

Indra explained that reopening borders during the pandemic is not an easy task as many countries have not yet revoked travel restrictions.

He explained that the peak of travel season is soon approaching with the year-end holiday. The reason for new entry policies applied to domestic tourists is to prevent a surge in cases after the holiday season ends.

“We need to be more alert in handling the influx of domestic visitors this year. If we fail to reduce transmission by the end of the holiday season, all our efforts will go in vain” concluded the former Head of Bali Disaster Management Agency.
