Bali Tourism Officials Will Launch Location Tracing App For Tourists

Share The Article

The Indonesian Tourism Minister, Sandiaga Uno has announced that he will launch a tracing app called ‘Telusur’ to supervise the movement of tourists while visiting the island.

As one of the efforts from the government to increase the quality of the tourism in Bali and to create a safer tourism environment, Sandiaga plans to launch the Telusur app, before the COVID-19 Free International Corridor is implemented in near future. “This app will help us to monitor the implementation of prevention protocols when the border reopens,” Sandiaga said during the launching event at Surya Cafe Benoa on Sunday (21/3).

Sandiaga claimed that this app could increase the tourist’s level of compliance with the protocols during their visit. The application has many functions such as monitoring the occupancy of tourist destinations like hotels and restaurants, and providing a recommendation of some tourist attractions that are less occupied to avoid creating a crowd. “This app will give us information about their location, and inform us about how many people are in that restaurant or cafe. It will also give us warning if the occupancy reaches its maximum capacity” Sandiaga added.

He also plans to collaborate with some related stakeholders such as the Health Ministry, the Communication and Information Ministry and the Bali provincial government to develop and integrate this app with their institutions. “All the tourists are required to register themselves into this app upon arrival when the border reopens and will allow them to visit our green zone areas, so this app will help us to do tracing and tracking to watch their movements” Sandiaga concluded.

In Europe, for example in Germany are such iPhone apps already longer time available, but without expected success for many reasons, also like because not everybody is using the latest iPhone.

We are planning a trip from August 24 through September 23. Coming from the US fully vaccinated. We have places booked in Sanur, Amed, Gili Air, Munduk and Ubud. With the green zone restriction, does that mean we cannot travel outside those areas?

@Patricia, welcome petricia. Cant'wait to have you here. Green zone means, resto & cafes and other public attractions allowed to be fully open. Red zone means the otherwise.. You can travel everywhere, but if you're in the red zone, you may have hard times to find a resto/cafes. But local warungs will always open ^_^

How do you ensure that people do not leave there mobiles ( to which the app is downloaded ) in there hotel rooms , rendering the idea pointless. Show the app on entry to any shop or establishment as a rule of entry ?
