Bali Governor claims over 20,000 foreign tourists booked hotels for November

Governor Wayan Koster claimed that more than 20,000 foreign tourists have booked their Bali hotel rooms for November, kicking off a new wave of optimism following the island’s fresh reopening this week. 

Koster told local media outlets yesterday that most of the expected tourists hailed from European countries, which are among the 19 eligible countries Indonesia is permitting entry into Bali in this current phase of international reopening. 

The governor emphasized that those numbers aren’t expected this month, and certainly not this week either. 

“Tourists need time. This is only Oct. 14. Hopefully by the end of October at the latest there will be [international] flights to Bali,” he added.

Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport was scheduled to start welcoming international flights on Oct. 14, but the facility has yet to do so on the actual day, with a spokesman citing what appears to be bureaucratic hiccups. 

If you’re going to start making arrangements to visit Bali, do make sure you read the fine prints before you make any bookings. For starters, you need to be fully vaxxed and come from the eligible countries identified by the Indonesian government. 

Other specific requirements include, but are not limited to, a five-day mandatory quarantine period upon arrival at the travelers’ expense, health insurance with coverage of at least US$100,000, and proof of booking for accommodation during their time in Indonesia.
