The Deputy Governor of Bali asks the government not to prohibit tourism

The Bali provincial government has asked the central government not to shut down tourism in Bali, despite the ban on returning home for religious purposes (mudik) during May 6-17, 2021.

Bali vice-governor Cok Ace admitted that he conveyed this to the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy at an online meeting. Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 20, he will host another webinar to get an answer.

Cok Ace motivated the request by the fact that people who come to Bali before the holiday of Idul Fitri do not commit mudik, but go on vacation.

“This is our consideration – to ask that tourists be excluded [from the ban],” the vice-governor explained.

Cok Ace believes that the number of people who are ready to come during the ban on movement on May 6-17 will not increase, and no more than 10 thousand tourists will come to Bali during this period.

In a circular letter from the Task Force on COVID-19, the Indonesian government imposed a ban on returning home for a mudik (that is, visiting a family at home on the Idul Fitri holiday) from May 6 to 17, 2021.

This is done to prevent the spread of COVID-19 since during mudik the mobility of the population increases many times.

Throughout the country, 333 checkpoints will be set up to monitor population movements and verify documents. Five of these sites will open in Bali at several central road junctions near the seaports of Gilimanuk and Padangbai.

The blocking of the port of Gilimanuk will be carried out at three points, namely at the intersection of Umanyar, Megati-Tabanan, and in the port of Gilimanuk itself. The Padangbai port will be blocked at the intersections of Mascheti-Gianyar and Padangbai.
