Bali to re-open to foreign travellers again

JAKARTA (CNA) – Indonesia’s holiday island of Bali will start welcoming back travellers from all countries from later this week, officials said yesterday, over three months after announcing it was open to selected nationalities.

Though Bali officially opened to visitors from China, New Zealand, and Japan among other countries in mid October, there has since been no direct flights, Tourism Minister Sandiaga Uno told a briefing.

The re-opening follows similar announcements by Thailand and the Philippines, which put quarantine waivers on hold in December over initial uncertainty about vaccine efficacy against the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
