Just recently Bali’s Governor I Wayan Koster announced that Bali will re-open its doors to international tourists as part of a three-stage plan starting on September 11th.
This was also reported by the “Jakarta Post” on 6 July 2020.
International airlines such as Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, Emirates and others are responding to this with new regular flights.
From mid-September onwards, these will be taking off again from Frankfurt, Vienna and other European and international cities in the direction of Denpasar.
Nevertheless, on this date – as with so much in these times – everything is far from being set in stone.
The news portal “Bali Discovery” reported on July 27, 2020 that I Wayan Koster has now spoken of obstacles to the opening of Bali. First, there are the applicable entry requirements. These would first have to be revised or changed. On the other hand, countries like Australia, China, Malaysia, Singapore and others would first have to open their borders again so that Bali could receive the first tourists. Until then, the authorities and people in Bali have to continue to work on the measures against the pandemic.
As in many parts of the world, a picture of light and shadow emerges here in Bali, in which the hope for a good future soon mingles.
