Quarantine Is Over In Bali

Quarantine Is Over In Bali

The Minister of Tourism and the Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno says that quarantine is no longer required for all international travellers arriving in Indonesia.

The government removed the quarantine requirements for fully-vaccinated travellers in response to the nation’s acceptance of pervasive and strict health protocols to prevent the spread of the virus.

This policy was decided because the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic was considered to be increasingly under control thanks to the community's adherence to strict and disciplined implementation of health protocols.

Furthermore, it was said that the circular letter of the task force (task) for handling Covid-19 related to the no-quarantine policy was issued no later than March 22, 2022. In addition to the controlled handling of the pandemic, he added, the smooth implementation of trials without quarantine in Bali, Batam and Bintan also become a reference for the government to expand the no-quarantine policy throughout Indonesia. In the three regions, the positivity rate is said to be very low and the reproduction rate is decreasing. “To remind us all, testing and tracing must be strengthened again. Indeed, antigen as a travel requirement has been removed, but as surveillance, as a condition for close contact, this must be strengthened,” said the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy.

Sandiaga Uno also stated that the use of PeduliLindungi should be used more and more considering that the last few weeks the use of the application showed a downward trend. On the same occasion, he stated that during the month of Ramadan, people can worship freely while still implementing health procedures, and have carried out complete and booster doses of vaccination, which will be adjusted to the level of density in houses of worship.

PPLN foreigners who are already in Indonesia and will travel, both domestically and internationally, are required to vaccinate through a program or mutual cooperation scheme in accordance with applicable regulations. In addition, the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine card/certificate is written in English, in addition to the language of the country of origin.

Expert Staff for Crisis Management at the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Henky Manurung, said that tourists who enter Bali are certain to follow the health protocol rules. The Balinese themselves are considered to be very ready to receive tourist visits.

Henky said Bali itself has carried out almost 98 percent of the first dose of vaccination. While the second dose is close to the same number.

“We see that Bali is the greatest province because the first vaccine has reached 98 percent. Meanwhile, the second dose of vaccine is also approaching the same number. Therefore, Bali is ready to receive foreign tourists again,” he explained.

The central government and the Bali provincial government continue to make preparations, including ensuring the readiness of the hospital as an anticipatory step. The opening of this visit is expected to boost Bali's economy, which has declined in the past 1.5 years.

The community and tourism actors in Bali welcome and hope that this policy will be the starting point for the economic revival in Bali after two years of being hit by the pandemic.
