The borders of Bali will reopen later this month to international visitors who might have this destination in their itinerary. Indonesia is a popular holiday hotspot. It had closed its borders in March 2020 due to fears of Coronavirus infection. That had a direct effect on its tourism-related economy. Given the improvement in the situation, the authorities decided to go in for partial reopening. Initially, it will accept travelers from China, New Zealand, and Japan. In all probability, the borders will reopen from October 14.

Quarantine will remain.

On arrival, the travelers have to go in for quarantine in a hotel for eight days. Moreover, they have to book their hotels in advance before entering the country. It will also be mandatory for them to provide proof of negative PCR test results.

Bali is a tourist destination in Indonesia

Coronavirus devastated the Travel industry and related businesses all over the world. The economy of many countries depends heavily on tourism. Because of the availability of vaccines, there is an improvement in the situation. People love to go on vacation and enjoy seeing new places. They want variety in their lives, but the dreaded disease forced them to avoid unwanted travel and remain indoors. Bali is one place they might have in their travel plans.

A minister of Indonesia announced during a virtual press conference that tourists would have to bear the cost of quarantine in hotels. At present, Britain is not included in the list. This is because Indonesia is on the red list of the UK. Hence, those returning to the UK from Indonesia would have to stay in a quarantined hotel for 11 nights.
