Well, it looks like your Bali vacation plans are going to be put on hold as foreign tourists won’t be allowed to visit the island for the rest of 2020 as Covid-19 concerns arise. The governor of Bali said that original plans of re-opening Bali next month has also been scrapped.

Bangkok Post reported that beaches, temples and other tourism spots were opened for domestic visitors at the end of July and was all set to open for foreign tourists by the end of September.

As Indonesia’s number of positive Covid-19 cases reach a whopping 155,412, the government decided to not re-open the island for now. Jakarta is also yet to lift its ban on foreign tourists entering Indonesia.

Bali’s governor, I Wayan Koster said that the situation in Indonesia is not conducive to allow international tourists visits.

“The central government supports (Bali’s) plans to recover tourism by opening the doors for international tourists. However, this requires care, prudence, not to be rushed, and requires careful preparation.”

As of now, there’s no confirmed date for which foreign tourists will be allowed to visit again. Hotels, restaurants and resorts struggled to stay afloat during the pandemic with plummeting number of visitors.

Bali has recorded over 4,000 positive cases and 49 deaths so far but the governor reassured that the situation is under control.
