Still, according to Andanina, the airport authority has prepared several procedures to anticipate the possibility of delay and cancel flights, due to the bad weather conditions. Furthermore, the number of officers-on-duty have been increased to supervise the implementation of health protocols and promoting #safetravel campaign. They will inspect every area in the airport to encourage people wearing mask, wash hand regularly and keep a safe distance.

Corona Updates: Bali after one-month opens for domestic travellers

1 September 2020 - It's been a month since Bali implemented the second phase of new-normal life protocols at the end of July. So far, there are more than 3000 domestic tourists (on-average) have landed in Bali airport every day, explained Wayan Koster, the governor of Bali to Balipost on 31 August 2020. However, this good news turns out has not significantly affected the occupancy rates on Bali hotels in general; as the visitors' number is relatively low compared to the total number of hotel rooms in Bali which is more than 130,000.

The deputy chief of the Indonesian Hotel General Manager Association in Bali,  I Made Ramia Adnyana has expressed his concern over the plan of the Indonesia central government to keep the border close for the rest of 2020. "...with another four to five months to go, we are not sure how Bali tourism industry will be able to survive until the beginning of 2021," he said. Covid-19 has caused many Balinese workers in tourism industries losing their jobs; most of them are forced to go back to their villages to do farming or fishing only to survive.

Foreign tourists may not be able to visit Bali until the end of 2020

14 August 2020 - Bali Provincial Government has informed their plans on reopening Bali for international tourists on 11 September 2020. However, this hope of an early reopening seems to fade when the central government through the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Pandjaitan dropped the statement that Indonesia is going to need more time to reopen again, at least until the end of this year. Luhut explained this update during a virtual meeting among the entrepreneurs of the Indonesian Employers' Association (Apindo) on Thursday, 13 August 2020.

At the moment, all the travel and hospitality business owners are expected to focus on marketing their services to domestic travellers and upgrading the facilities based on the new-normal health protocols. "We expect 70% of domestic tourists. So we think that foreign tourists will not be able to travel until the end of the year. Let us first consolidate ourselves," said Luhut. 

The head of Bali tourism office, I Putu Astawa also explained that - the decision on reopening the country is not only determined by the central government, but this is also related to other countries' policies. Even if Indonesia has opened the borders to international tourists, but on the other hand, other countries have not allowed their residents to leave their countries, then it's pointless.

Bali tourism recovery program is expected to be started by the end of 2020

Agung the occupancy rates of all accommodation in South Bali were still at 60 percent - as the red (dangerous) zone is only 12 KM from the crater. But these days, the hotel occupancy rates are even lower than 10 percent, which is followed by more than a million people who work in tourism sectors losing their job. The head of Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association or PHRI Badung IGA Rai Suryawijaya mentioned "Since April, almost 96 percent of hotels (in Bali) have closed, because there are no more tourist visits, the number will even continue to increase to 100 percent, because existing tourists will need to go back to their home countries". 

However, almost all of the members of Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association in Bali agreed with the Government’s decision to focus on handling COVID-19. "We are currently in a crisis situation, what we need to focus on right now is to get all the people contracted by COVID-19 a proper health care. So that people can calm down, and continue to their normal life soon, "  Added IGA Rai Suryawijaya. 

Nonetheless, IGA Rai Suryawijaya also mentioned about the recovery program for Bali tourism businesses is expected to be started by the end of the year. He hopes that Bali tourism can be reopened to tourists at Christmas and the new year 2021. Moreover, Indonesian President Joko Widodo has also stated that the tourism business will surely  return to normal again in 2021. Tourists will be most likely to increase their vacation time after being bored at home during the COVID pandemic quarantine.

However the head of Bali Customary Village Council, Ida Panglingsir Agung Putra Sukahet has informed that this is not final yet. "That's still only a plan. We need to discuss this matter further on April 8th, and we will decide later. If so, of course, there will be an official circular letter from the Bali Customary Village Council," he added.

For your information that this Nyepi will be different from the regular Nyepi all Balinese people celebrate every year. This upcoming Nyepi is called ‘Sipeng Nyepi’ or ‘Eka Brata Penyepian (amati lelulungan)’ which means the only restriction is not allowed to go outside the house. Everyone will be still able to do normal activities, while sending prayers to God at home with electricity and internet service within these 3 days. 

Furthermore, Ida Penglingsir Agung Putra Sukahet also mentioned that this plan also can be considered as an alternative discourse in mitigating the spread of coronavirus outbreak in Bali. Among spiritual leaders these 3 days will be also giving a chance to ‘Bhuta’ (evil spirit) to become harmony 'somya'. By knowing this information days ahead, all the people in Bali are expected to be able to buy some basic needs more wisely without having to cause "panic buying" in prior days before Nyepi.

Luhut Pandjaitan, the coordinating minister for maritime affairs and investment, as well as the acting transportation minister explained why the Government still allowed the exodus this year after the cabinet meeting in Jakarta yesterday. . “Even if we choose to prohibit people from mudik, they’d do it anyway.

Work from home policy has been extended to April 21st, 2020

31st March 2020

The Governor of Bali has released a new public advisory letter. In this statement the government extends extend some of the already existing regulations to April 21st, 2020:

  1. 从eBay的Magento电子商务系统、IBM和NetSuite等知名企业到规模较小的Shopify和Volusion等,很多科技公司都希望从中分一杯羹。但相对冷门的Bigcommerce正在悄悄引发关注并窃取市场份额。它吸引了超过7,500万美元的风投资本,其中4,000万美元来自企业家史蒂夫o凯斯的Revolution Growth公司。
    不过,人们并没有对周二的峰会寄予过高期望,因为没有任何迹象表明,各国能在政治上实现突破,进而采取更有力的举措。科学家表示,要想如愿把全球变暖控制在各国五年前一致同意的上限,那么未来几年里,就必须扭转排放量上升的势头。现有的所有方案,与实现这一目标都相距甚远。
  2. To be fair though, no other country has ever had China’s assets: a stable government with an unequivocal, long-term financial and strategic commitment and a huge domestic—hence mostly captive—market. According to market forecasts, China’s domestic air traffic is expected to almost quadruple between now and 2036 to reach 1.6 billion passengers, which will be more than twice the U.S.’s domestic traffic by 2036.

  5. China purchased 141,000 industrial robots in 2017, up 58.1% year-on-year, but foreign brands accounted for nearly three quarters of that, showing that the gap is still widening between Chinese robot makers and their foreign peers.
  6. The book reflects growing anxiety in some quarters about the possible negative impact of automation on jobs, from manufacturing to professional services. The subtitle of its UK edition warns of “the threat of mass unemployment” and, in the US edition, foresees “a jobless future”.

Government Waives Income Taxes for Six Months to support Economy during Covid-19 Crisis

(Jakarta March 12th 2020)

Finance Minister of Indonesia Sri Mulyani Indrawati announced that Indonesia will grant a six-month tax break for employees, manufacturers, and importers, starting as soon as next month (April), as part of its second fiscal stimulus to help support and stimulate the economy which has been strongly afected by the corona outbreak crisis.

She said the government would suspend collecting employees' income taxes, also known as PPh 21. The ministry's tax office would waive the income tax paid monthly (PPh 25) by entrepreneurs in the manufacturing sectors.

Indonesia and particularly Bali, whose economy depends on tourism has been hit hard by the corona crisis. The shutdown of China stopped all visitors coming from China. The Chinese tourists are now the largest group, while the Australians are now second.

The minister has earlier projected that the largest economy in Southeast Asia could see its growth slowing down to 4.70 percent this quarter, from the 4.97 percent pace in the last quarter as the Covid-19 outbreak disrupted China's economy, Indonesia's largest trading partner. The country has so far 34 confirmed cases of the corona, with one fatality which occurred in Bali.

Also, Indonesia's stock market stopped trading for 30 minutes on Thursday 13th March, the first time since the market installed the 5 percent circuit breaker to slow panic selling amid worries of a widespread Covid-19 outbreak in the country.
The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) halted trade at 3:33 p.m. local time after the index fell more than 5 percent to its lowest level since June 2016.
