Bali Opening in July 2021 ?
:)Until May 2021 there were lots of speculations and rumours of Bali’s opening but all proved to be wrong. Global connectivity is severely affected due to the impact of COVID19.
There are different speculations in the market that Bali is going to open in the month of Jan or March and maybe in July, but that again is not looking possible considering the current scenario of Coronavirus.
Though again Bali officials have issued the statement that they are trying to get open in the month of July, but with no surety of it.
As we have seen the second wave emerging & spreading disruption in some countries of south-east Asia like India & Nepal, the chances of Bali getting open in 2021 are quite less. Bali administration would not want to put the people of the territory at the risk of a second wave.
We will not play with words and directly come to the conclusion that the Maldives offers more privacy on tour and is definitely safer than Bali.
This does not mean that Bali is not safe, but if only safety is the criteria then go for the Maldives.

The economy of Bali totally depends on tourists and due to the pandemic international tourism totally stopped. The condition of drivers, vendors, Hotel staff and restaurant owners is in a very difficult stage.
Many people have gone back to their villages and started working as farmers.
A report said that if international tourism will not start in the next 6 months, the global hospitality industry will see lots of suicidal attempts.
Well, the hospitality industry of Bali is the most professional industry that works together for the betterment of the island also. They have asked hotel management to learn to apply social distancing measures and policies that keep COVID away. All vendors of hotels are notified to prepare their tours as per the norms of govt for the containment of COVID 19.
Yes Bali is preparing for the comeback and it will come back stronger with the best policies and environment.
As believed by many experts in the industry, if someone is desiring to travel to Bali in 2021 then they should book the holiday packages (Hotels, Flights and services).
As per them once international travel will be open, the prices of resorts and hotels will go rocket high.
One should book the services only if there is complete flexibility.

Yes, Bali is open for Domestic tourism with some clauses as local tourists must have a PCR test taken no longer than 72hours before departure.
This rule is said to be for Christmas and might discontinue after that
Good Hotels and Pvt cabs should already be booked before reaching out to the town as you don’t want to get into the mess of negotiations and availability issues once you reach Bali. It is expected to be full of tourists once international flights are open.
Most important is insurance and that too should have COVID 19 cover. We strongly recommend having a good insurance policy before travelling to any country.
Masks and Sanitisers have already become a part of life.
It is also recommended to get COVID 19 test done even if it is mandatory to enter in the country or not as you would never want to carry any infection to any foreign country.
