The Indonesian island of Bali will reopen to international tourism on October 14, but only for some countries including China, New Zealand and Japan: Maritime Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan announced, according to CNN, that all travelers arrive at Ngurah Rai International Airport. You will be subject to an eight-day quarantine period.
The minister explained that reopening the country and easing anti-Covid measures should be done gradually because Indonesia “does not want the unexpected to happen.” Indonesia has been among the Asian countries hardest hit by the coronavirus, with more than four million cases and 142,000 deaths. However, the number of daily cases has fallen in recent weeks from a peak of more than 56,000 infections in mid-July this year to 1,100 on Sunday.
Among the corrective measures launched by Jakarta nationwide are the reopening of fitness centers in the regions of Bali and Java itself with a maximum capacity of 25 percent, and the Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali. The reopenings concern the Jakarta, Bandung, Solo, Semarang, Surabaya and Yogyakarta Special Regions. The government has also allowed the sale of drinks and food in cinemas, where access is limited to 50 percent of maximum capacity
