Tourists will be picked up from the airport using a certified shuttle and they can rest assured that their safety is prioritized.

Doddy explained that hotel and restaurant workers will be provided temporary accommodations at the resorts to minimize the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Nevertheless, incoming tourists must prove that they do not have the novel virus before stepping foot into the Indonesian tourism destination.

“We want the area to become a tourist destination that is healthy and safe thus why we are working with the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy.”

Doddy has high hopes that the program can be executed in December so the company can begin creating a safe travel bubble and environment.

He added that, at least for now, he can only give a broad example of the program without providing many details because the plan is still being developed.

According to the official ITDC website, the Nusa Dua Tourism Area is a massive zone that has undergone several developments for over 40 years.
