"We target the Chinese tourists as we know that the country has managed to get out of the pandemic following a successful vaccination program,” Cok Ace said recently. 

Besides Bali, there are also travel corridors in the Riau Islands, namely Nongsa Point and Lagoi which are scheduled to open in April. 

"We are still in discussion. The proposal is on how the Safe Travel Corridor Arrangement could provide a sense of security. In dealing with the health crisis, safety and security must be prioritized,” said Sandiaga.

Bali gears up to welcome foreign tourists

Bali governor Wayan Koster has designated the island's popular destinations in Ubud, Sanur, and Nusa Dua as the green zones. 

Wayan said the creation of the three zones is part of a wider “Covid-19 safe travel” strategy, which was initiated by the Health Minister and the Tourism and Creative Economy Minister.

Head of Bali Provincial Tourism Office, Putu, confirmed Sunday that foreign tourists will be allowed to visit the island by mid-year. But, they must be vaccinated first. 

"I haven't heard from the [Bali] governor, but the President said that the tourism will be opened in June or July 2021 when the Covid-19 cases went down," Putu said.
