Bali Rumoured to Open Fully to Vaccinated Tourists in January

Bali has taken a highly respectable, safe approach to the pandemic. Now Bali is getting ready for tourism again, with a secure protocol.

It's been a rough and challenging 2 years for Bali. Seeing that the economy is 90% dependent on tourism which has essentially been halted, you can understand why. However, the remarkable endurance and confidence of the Balinese people and local communities have enabled Bali to pull through this crisis with its head held high.

Whereas many folks are still out of work, most have supported each other using alternative internally produced methods for economic scale. And most of that is done by people making food that they sell online or on the streets.

It's tough to compete with thousands of fellow food sellers, but somehow most of them make it work and have found a way to be self-sustainable.

Everyone has learned not to sit on their laurels and wait for the tourists to bring you the money.

Bali's Re-Opening Plans.

Bali's idea was to limit the Christmas and New Years' seasons by imposing curfews and restricting nighttime gatherings. A wise move, considering how people lose control during the festive times and could easily infect each other at events and large parties.

Restaurants are required to shut at 8 pm from 20th December until 2nd January, with a maximum capacity of 50% allowed at any time. The limitations will be strictly enforced.

Based on the local news, the restrictions are to end in early January, as will the quarantine regulations, as long as the virus spread is under control.

The final decision will be made once we arrive in January to see if the pandemic is under control. Again, a wise decision by the local authorities to protect everyone's health in Bali. Our health, after all, is the number one priority, not money.

However, the new Covid cases in Bali are not rising out of proportion, which means that it's promising, the Island of the Gods will open its doors again with little or no quarantine time and free visas come January 2022.

Let's hope so.
