Share The Article

The Bali Provincial Government has reduced quarantine time for international visitors into 5 days.

Bali Vice Governor, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace) confirmed that the provincial government has finally reduced the quarantine time from 8 days into 5 days. “After discussing this entry requirement policy, we have agreed to reduce the quarantine time for international travelers into only 5 days.” Cok Ace said in Denpasar on Monday (11/10).

Cok Ace explained that this policy was revised, during a meeting with the Coordinator of Partial Lockdown Implementation for Bali and Java, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan on Sunday evening (10/10). “During the meeting with Luhut, we decided to revise this policy after looking at our competitors as many of them don’t require their visitors to undergo any quarantine upon their arrivals.” Cok Ace added.

He also said that the government will potentially reduce this 5 days of quarantine if the new variant of Covid-19 such as MU variant is properly handled in other countries. However, Cok Ace stated that despite this evaluation, the government will keep implementing quarantine as one of the requirements. “During our meeting, everyone agreed that it’s still not possible to completely revoke the quarantine policy for Bali visitors.” Cok Ace concluded.

Well another flip flop by these incompetent government officials, when will they realise that no one is coming to Bali to isolate in overpriced quarantine hotels.Within 2-3 weeks they will drop all quarantine requirements because of the lack of tourists and realise that until Australians are allowed back to Bali there is no hope of Bali ever recovering because they are big money spenders for the Balinese economy, just like after the Bali bombings it was Australians who saved the Balinese economy from collapse. FACT =. 1.29 million Australians visited Bali in 2019

That’s 5 days too many. I spend $9,000 there in one month. Even if the average international visitor spends $4,000, at a loss of 100,000 visitors, you are looking at a loss of $400 million in revenue.

No way my family would lose even two days of our holidays when we’re fully vaccinated and have a negative PCR test before arriving. So, it’s elsewhere this year for Christmas.

Just how many vacation days do international tourists have banked? Does Mr Ace think that tourist are desperate enough to fly halfway around the world to lose 60% of an average two week vacation locked up in a mouldy hotel room? Tourists have choices. Bali is not the only Faux-Shamballa being sold .
