The Tourism Association from Bali Tourism Board (BTB) has proposed the central government reduce quarantine time for international visitors to 1 day.
The Head of BTB, Ida Bagus Agung Partha Adnyana stated that despite recently reducing quarantine time for international travelers to 3 days as The Bali Sun previously reported, Adnyana still hopes that the central government would consider adjusting this policy by implementing only 1 day of quarantine to attract more travelers to the island. “We appreciate the recent quarantine policy adjustment, but our tourism benchmark is Thailand’s Phuket Sandbox policy, so I hope it can be reduced to one day,” Adnyana said on Thursday (4/11).
He proposed that the central government could give leniency to international visitors who have completed their full Covid-19 vaccination to boost the economy. “I think one day of quarantine for fully vaccinated tourists is enough, especially those who test negative from Covid-19 with a PCR test upon their arrival at the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport,” Adnyana added.
He also admitted that Bali hotels haven’t received any reservations from international visitors although the border was reopened on October 14th, 2021. Adnyana concluded.
That being said, Adnyana was confused with the latest statement by Bali’s Governor regarding the 20,000 hotel reservations that were allegedly made by international tourists for November 2021. “Our hotels haven’t received any bookings from international tourists, so I don’t have any idea how the governor could make such a statement, his data was not from me. Apart from that, I also think that so far we’ve been targeting the wrong markets for Bali’s tourism reopening.” Adnyana concluded.
