Bali starts the re-opening phase for tourism from October 14, 2021
The Indonesian government has just announced that it will re-open our Bali island to select international travellers as of next week, as a start to the re-opening phase and come back of tourism.
The island's Ngurah Rai International Airport will be open to international travellers from South Korea, China, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and New Zealand as of October 14, 2021
The partial reopening, however, does not include Australia -- a key source of tourists before the pandemic as currently Australian borders are closed and Australians are unable to leave. The announcement by Scott Morrison last week stating that Australians will be able to commence International travel from November 2021, should see Bali accepting Australians sooner than we had imagines.
All international travellers will be required to have proof of hotel booked for a quarantine of at least seven nights at their own expense in one of the listed hotels in the green zones of Bali. These areas include Ubud, Nusa Dua and Sanur. Once a 7 night quarantine completion has taken place, guests can then more to their own desired accommodation as long as their Covid text shows a clear result.
This is the hope and light that we have needed to see for Bali for so long. As we watch the rest of the world return to a "new normal" it is really exciting to see what this means to our favourite island. x
