Original Story:



Bali will reopen its borders to international tourism on September 11th announced the Governor of Bali, Wayan Koster. 

The Bali Governor stated that domestic tourism will resume on July 9th, 2020 and will continue into August. If at that time local transmission is low, Bali will reopen its borders to foreign tourists. 

“Once again I emphasize, this is just a plan, not a schedule that will definitely be implemented,” explained the Governor

“Whether or not this is carried out will greatly depend on the situation and the dynamics of the development of Covid-19 in the field, especially local transmission in Bali.” Koster added.

*Important Note: The reopening of tourism activities is dependent on approval of the Indonesian government. Be sure to check with local and state authorities before traveling.

“First we will open tourism to locals and then we will review it together.” said the Bali Governor.

I suggest to the Bali government to open the airport to international tourism if continue to lockdown because of coronavirus never will be open coronavirus will never die for few years but people of Bali will die due to lack of economics support Indonesian can't go to other countries even the neighboring Singapore and Malaysia but Singapore and Malaysia must allow to come to Bali Indonesia they're numbers are very low I hope the governor of Bali will reconsider to open the economy of Bali will help the small scale hotels and restaurants and food stalls to recover the lost not everyone will come to Indonesia only the people who love Bali will come.
