Bali is a stunning holiday destination that is very popular with British holidaymakers, backpackers and students on their gap years. The island destination is known for its beautiful scenery, white beaches and rich culture. But in recent months, Bali, like the rest of the world, has been off limits as countries across the world halted travel overseas.
“If this scheme is successful, it will be continued with the opening of Bali for archipelago tourists from July 31, 2020.
“With a note, Bali will selectively open tourist attractions so there are no new sources of transmission,” he said.
He added: “People must use a mask and diligently wash hands.
“There must be no nightlife. Health protocols must be followed.”
If Bali’s reopening is to local and domestic tourism is successful, then they will be reopening to international tourists from September 11.
There have been no further details released on whether Bali will open to all countries or whether there will be mandatory testing in place.
The above dates could change depending on the spread of coronavirus in Bali.
“The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is advising British nationals against all non-essential international travel at this time,” according to the FCO website.
The UK government updated its travel advice on July 4, when it announced a list of 59 countries across the world which “have been assessed as no longer presenting an unacceptably high risk to British people travelling abroad”.
The FCO website added: “We continue to advise against non-essential international travel, except to countries and territories listed.
“We are monitoring the international situation very closely and keeping this advice under constant review so that it reflects our latest assessment of risks to British people.
“We take a range of factors into account.
“For coronavirus, this includes the incidence rate and the resilience of healthcare provision in each country.”
