The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno, has prepared a Telusur application to track the distribution of tourists in Bali through occupancy status in tourist destinations, hotels, and restaurants. This application will be launched before the government opens Bali’s tourist gates for foreign tourists in the middle of the year.
“We continue to improve preparations for the opening of Bali tourism and we have discussed an application that will help comply with health protocols, this application is called Telusur,” Sandiaga said in his statement on Monday, March 22, 2021.
The Ministry of Transportation previously stated that it would limit the entry of foreign nationals to be aware of the spread of the Covid-19 virus, especially to anticipate the spread of a new variant of Covid-19. Several new variants of Covid-19, such as B117 have been found in Indonesia and there have been as many as seven cases.
The locally-made application will provide information on the number of visitors at each point to increase awareness of the spread of the coronavirus and ensure that health protocols are strictly and disciplined in all tourist locations.
Through this application, officers can check on parties who violate the rules, such as guest capacity levels, to be warned.
Furthermore, the Telusur application will also track all tourists while on vacation in Bali. Thus, the presence of tourists is fully monitored.
“So this search can help us for tracing and tracking,” said Sandiaga.
Sandiaga Uno is preparing to open Bali to foreign tourists in the free covid corridor scheme. In the first stage, the government has prepared three green zones that can be visited by foreign tourists, namely Ubud, Nusa Dua, and Sanur.
