Recently, officials from the Covid-19 Handling Task Force explained that the majority of the regions in Bali have turned back into red zone areas as Covid transmissions keep surging. But apparently it didn’t really affect the central government’s plan to reopen its border to international visitors. “The schedule to reopen Bali for international visitors in June or July is still on track.” Sandiaga said during a weekly briefing on Monday (19/4).

But he also mentioned that he has been communicating with related stakeholders to handle the situation. “However, the schedule to reopen the border still depends on three main things such as:
-The compliance level of the people in three appointed green zone areas such as Ubud, Sanur and Nusa Dua area.
-The improvement of 3T implementation (Testing, Tracing, Treatment)
-The Covid-19 vaccine distribution and the preparation stage of Travel Corridor Arrangement (TCA)

Sandiaga aims to distribute the vaccine to at least 2 or 3 million (70%) of Bali’s population in the next few weeks. “Apart from the Covid-19 vaccine distribution, we also aim to certify around 7,500 tourist destinations across Bali with CHSE (Cleanliness, Health, Safety, Environment) certificates this year, so travelers can visit the island with less worry.” Sandiaga concluded.
