Officials from the Badung regional government have launched an electronic ticketing system and Covid-19 breathalyzer testing at the Uluwatu Temple.

Several regional government officials, including the Regent of Badung District, I Nyoman Giri Prasta have implemented e-ticketing and Genose C-19 breath testing at the Uluwatu Temple as it’s one of the main tourist attractions located in southern Bali. These systems were initiated as one of the preparation stages of the Badung regional government to receive international tourists when the border reopens in near future.

Giri Prasta explained that this is a signal from the regional government to both international and domestic visitors that Badung is ready to receive the influx of international tourists that are expected to start returning when the border reopens around July 2021. “Uluwatu Temple is the first tourist attraction that implemented the breathalyzer testing kits in Badung, and the others will follow in no time. In the meantime, we will keep on distributing Covid-19 vaccines to both residents and tourism workers in our tourism areas.” Prasta said on Tuesday (11/5).

Prasta said that each visitor of the Uluwatu Temple will be tested with the Genose C-19 upon their arrival for free, as the Badung regional government has committed to cover all the expense of the breathalyzer tests. “The Genose C-19 test here is free for each visitor, and if there’s anyone who was tested positive, they would be directly referred to Mangusada Hospital for further investigation.” Giri Prasta concluded. Prasta will also assure that Uluwatu Temple will have enough supply of the breathalyzer bags from the central government as part of their effort to prevent Covid-19 transmissions when the border reopens. A cashless method has also been implemented in order to reduce any contact between the operator and visitor as well as preventing future fraud.
