The tourism minister of Indonesia has announced that Bali is still closed for foreign tourists due to the coronavirus pandemic. Sandiaga Uno, Indonesian Minister for Tourism and the Cultural Economy, says that this limitation will remain until the cases of COVID-19 reduces drastically.
The minister also points out that the authorities of Indonesia were working to reopen the borders for Bali travelers in July or August, but the recent increase in the cases caused the suspension of the plans.
Bali is experiencing 200 COVID-19 cases every day, and officials believe that it should drop to 30-40 cases per day before the government would consider reopening.
Bali has announced that 71% of the population have received at least their first vaccine dose, and it will be completed for 70 percent of the population by the end of July.
