Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment has stated that I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali would reopen to international travelers in October 2021.
Luhut, on the other hand, stated that there are various regulations that every international traveler must follow, one of which is mandatory self-quarantine.
“Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali will open internationally on October 14, 2021, as long as it achieves the provisions and requirements of quarantine, COVID-19 testing, and Task Force readiness,” Luhut said on Monday 4th October at a press conference on the weekly evaluation of PPKM execution.
Every international arrival at Ngurah Rai Airport, according to Luhut, must have proof of renting a hotel for quarantine for at least eight days at their own expense.
“We will open to South Korea, China, Japan, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and New Zealand,” Luhut explained.
The government is still imposing limitations on international travelers at the airport. These limits will be implemented at the National Border Post (PLBN), as well as at ports and airports.
Other airports in Indonesia that are now operational are Soekarno Hatta Airport in Tangerang and Sam Ratulangi Airport in Manado. Furthermore, the sea ports that have recently opened are Batam, Tanjung Pinang (Sumatra), and Nunukan (Kalimantan). Furthermore, PLBN is only available at the Entikong and Aruk Terminals in Kalimantan, as well as the Motaain Terminal in Malaysia (East Nusa Tenggara).
