At the start of the holiday season, the provincial government issued a decree requiring all domestic entries into Bali to provide proof of a negative rapid antigen test result.

The regulation is in effect to date. However, illegal activity was brought to police attention as a bus arrived unprepared.

Lieutenant Colonel Haruna of Jebrana Military described the situation to COVID19 Handling Task Force during a meeting on Thursday (7/1).

“As the bus arrived at Gilimanuk Port, the driver got out and presented the rapid antigen test documents to the officer. Instead of showing documents of all passengers, he only showed three of them. He then got away after bribing the officers on duty” said Haruna.

Jembrana Military is currently investigating the officers on duty that day.

“These types of officers break the image of Bali as a tourist destination, and it could potentially become much worse if we don’t handle it as soon as possible” Haruna concluded. 

Accordingly, the Lieutenant ordered all officers to direct people to the Kimia Farma laboratory facility at Gilimanuk Port to complete the rapid antigen test if they haven’t tested prior to the arrival.
