Governor Wayan Koster announced that Bali will not open for international tourism until the end of 2020.
The original plan on reopening its borders for international tourism starting on September 11th had not received a green light from Indonesian government.
Citing an increase in COVID-19 cases and a high death rate in Indonesia, the Indonesian government will not allow foreign tourists.
The press release from the Governor of Bali also stated that the Bali government will only focus on domestic tourism this year.
“Until the end of 2020, the Provincial Government of Bali will optimize efforts to bring domestic tourists to Bali in order to restore tourism and the economy of Bali,” Governor Wayan Koster stated.
