No Quarantine Regulations to Bali is very popular in Bali today. The Indonesian government is currently conducting a trial to enter Bali without quarantine for foreign tourists and Indonesian citizens. Bali became a pilot project before the Indonesian government implemented this policy in all provinces in a country of 17,000 islands.
“Bali has become a pilot project because the implementation rate of the second vaccination is already high compared to other provinces,” said PPKM Java Bali Coordinator Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, Sunday (23/2/2022). “But in the preparation period for March 14, we will continue to accelerate the second dose, elderly, booster,” Luhut continued.
Luhut emphasized that if the trend of COVID-19 cases remained stable amid the lifting of quarantine rules in Bali, this policy would apply to all parts of Indonesia. The target is to start testing for all regions beginning April 1, 2022.
“If the trial in Bali improves, we will expand the no-quarantine policy throughout Indonesia from April 1 or earlier than April 1, 2022,” he explained. “But once again this policy will be based on future pandemic data,” Luhut added.
Bali Tourism Doors Open
This new policy from the government will undoubtedly open a unique atmosphere of Bali tourism suspended since the 2019 pandemic. It has hit the foundation of Bali’s economy, which relies on the tourism sector. The tourism situation in the province of a thousand temples is quiet. And in fact, many businesses in the tourism sector have closed. We can monitor this in all tourist attractions such as Kuta, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Sanur, and Ubud. Many hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, art shops, and other businesses are closed. These companies have sent home almost all of their employees because there is no activity.
After running for more than two years, Bali is now getting a breath of fresh air by opening the doors of tourism. So, foreign and domestic tourists are free to enter this paradise island without quarantine. The no-quarantine policy to enter Bali and other areas in Indonesia will significantly help improve Bali’s economy. Previously, Bali only relied on domestic tourists, which didn’t help much. It is also because the national economy has decreased.
Meanwhile, several businesses in the tourism sector have begun to make preparations. Hotels, restaurants, bars, etc., are starting to prepare it now. They slowly began to call their employees back despite the challenging conditions. Of course, this development will depend on the situation in the future.
Bali’s Readiness with No Quarantine Policy in March 2022
The Balinese government has aggressively implemented CHSE in all sectors, especially tourism. Now, it is slowly starting to improve safety and hygiene. Hotels, bars, nightclubs, etc., have begun to make preparations. They clean their work area after they have left it for more than two years. However, these companies have not fully employed their workforce. Likewise, their working hours are not yet complete. It is because the tourism situation is still quiet. On the other hand, they have to make preparations. So, they are ready to welcome guests if the government has opened the door to Bali tourism.
For example, in the Canggu area, we can see that the activities of workers in the tourism sector have started to move. And in fact, there is a new hotel in Canggu ready to accept bookings in 2022. The Tunjung Boutique Resort is the only new hotel in Canggu established in 2022. Our hotel offers 21 elegant and comfortable guest rooms equipped with international facilities standards. It is great for tourists who want to stay in Bali. They can stay at a resort with a cozy atmosphere in a rural area like Canggu.
