With news that Bali will soon be ready to welcome back international tourists before Christmas 2020, Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (MoTCE) has implemented Cleanliness, Health, Safety and Environmental Sustainability (CHSE) protocols.
The new measures – which include regular disinfectant procedures, safe physical distancing, and temperature checking at every relevant venue, as well as negative PCR tests when arriving at airports and other immigration points – prioritise safe travel for Bali’s international visitors. They also incorporate digital services such as contactless check-ins that will minimise direct person-to-person contact.
A safe return to tourism
“These protocols ensure a smooth travel experience, while prioritising the health and safety for all domestic and global visitors who are coming to Bali. We believe that the tourism and creative economy sector can return to productivity, but most importantly remain safe from Covid-19." said Director of Communication MoTCE Agustini Rahayu.
Safe destinations identifiable to travellers
In addition, destinations and venues that pass CHSE’s assessment will also earn an official certified sign of #InDOnesiaCare showing visitors that it complies with the necessary health and safety protocols. “All this was put in place so everyone involved – both tourists and people working in the industry – can feel safe whilst enjoying the beauty a thriving Bali has to offer." Agustini added.
