Per The Bali Sun, Indonesia’s tourism minister, Sandiaga Uno, has stated that a proposed “travel corridor arrangement” is in the works with several countries including the UAE, as well as the Netherlands, China, South Korea and Singapore, with the aim of being ready to receive a number of international visitors by June or July.

According to Uno, Bali’s main airport, Ngurah Rai Airport is undergoing preparations to reopen its international flights.

“We will keep on simulating and doing trials as a new procedure to operate the international terminal of Ngurah Rai airport before receiving the influx of international visitors in June or July this year,” he said last week.

Similarly, Bali’s key areas will be divided into ‘Green Zone’ areas which include Ubud, Nusa Dua and Sanur, making it the first to welcome tourists, mostly around the middle of the year as a mass vaccination drive began last week.
