Bali to reopen borders for international visitors in September

Domestic tourism in Bali will resume on July 9, with international tourism set to reopen in September.

“Once again I emphasise, this is just a plan, not a schedule that will definitely be implemented,” said Bali Governor Wayan Koster.

“Whether or not this is carried out will greatly depend on the situation and the dynamics of the development of Covid-19 in the field, especially local transmission in Bali.”

The Bali economy is highly dependent on tourism, accounting for up to 80 per cent of the island’s GDP.

A government Cleanliness, Health, and Safety (CHS) program will be rolled out across Bali as it prepares to welcome visitors back.
