JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The Indonesian resort island of Bali will reopen to foreign tourists starting from Feb. 4 in a bid to revive its economy due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Today, we are announcing that the government will reopen Bali to international arrivals starting from Feb. 4,” Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan told a virtual press conference on Monday, Jan. 31.

“This [decision] aims to revive Bali’s economy after it has been affected badly by the pandemic.”

However, the senior minister said, the reopening will be held in stages. Currently, Bali will only be open to foreign travelers and non-Indonesian migrant workers.

“Besides, the quarantine regulations will follow the circular letter accordingly.”

Bali has added two more options for its quarantine facilities, comprising five-star hotels and six vessels with Cleanliness, Health, Safety & Environment Sustainability (CHSE) certification.
