When will Bali be open for international tourism?
Indonesia has been in lockdown since April 2020 and has first announced that Bali would be open again for foreigners September 1, 2020. But after rising Coronavirus cases in Indonesia it had been pushed forward to January 2021. After the Indonesian president visiting Bali in April, officials have been releasing new information that Bali might open for tourism in July 2021. But since a new wave of severe Covid cases in Indonesia since August there is no new date when they expect Bali to re-open.
Of course our prayers go out to everyone in Indonesia to be safe and healthy. And hearts are hopeful for the people in Bali, as their work and income is highly affected again with the new lockdown.
