Many popular travel destinations around the globe have faced a reduction in tourism amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, few destinations have taken a harder hit than the Indonesian island Bali. From a destination that usually sees millions of international travellers, strict border control measures resulted in just 45 visitors in 2021.
In 2019 Bali had about 6.2 million international arrivals and 1.05 million in 2020. Nyoman Gede Gunadika, section head of tourism for Bali Province said “that is the lowest number of foreign tourist visits we’ve ever recorded,” The 45 visitors account for the period between January and October 2021. It was then confronted by the Central Statistics Bureau of Bali.
The island’s international airport in Denpasar has been closed to international flights nearly all year. The tourists that have arrived almost all came from private yachts. The Ngurah Rai International Airport officially reopened to international flights on October 14. There have so far only been domestic flights in and out of the airport.
