As The Bali Sun previously reported, the number of foreign tourists has finally increased as the government reinstated standard travel policies such as zero quarantine and the visa on arrival policy.

“7 travelers tested positive with the virus. Six of them were foreign nationals while the other one was an Indonesian citizen,” Koster added.

Koster also stated that 11 more international airlines are about to resume direct flights to the island.

Meanwhile, the President of Garuda Indonesia, Irfan Setiaputra, was optimistic that this would be the beginning of Bali’s tourism recovery. “Hence, we have been supporting all of the provincial government’s efforts in reviving Bali tourism and economy,” Irfan concluded.

@Diane, very good question, than it’s possible that You {and, or} Your medical insurance will be charged until the bitter end.

@Diane, asymptomatic or mild shall move to isolation hotel. Medium/severe symptom will be treated at approved hospital - all at your cost. That's why, insurance is required.
