As plans to reopen the border arise, the Government of Indonesia has outlined new entry protocols and screening measures for international travelers.
The Minister stated that the government would require an antigen test from every visitor entering Indonesian borders.
Meanwhile, Bali is still in recovery from the pandemic which began more than 10 months ago. As an island heavily reliant on international tourism, Bali is facing a financial crisis.
The Provincial Government is trying to combat the situation by adopting preventive measures such as face masks, sanitizing, temperature checking, and disinfecting.
Additionally, a Clean Health and Safety Environment (CHSE) certificate must be attained by operating hospitality businesses to verify the government health and safety standard. With these measures in place, Bali hopes that The Central Government will consider reopening the border in the near future.
