Bali is gearing up to welcome tourists from overseas starting September 11, 2020. The declaration was made on July 5 by I Wayan Koster, the Governor of Bali, affirming that tourists’ favorite island will formally reopen for international tourists in September.
Newly, the governor of Bali signed the ‘New Era of Life Order Protocol’, a verdict that will regulate the reopening of the Bali economy. As per this new verdict, the third stage of reviving will see tourism activities including entertaining tourists from outside.
To make it effective, a mass prayer was held in Bali on Sunday where thousands of people were present. The prayer was held at the Besakih Hindu temple, situated in the town of Karangasem.
These are the three phases of Bali reopening:
The first phase: July 9th, 2020
In this stage, all the local businesses will start to reopen. Along with it, the health services, government offices, finance, transportation, traditional and modern markets, eateries, fisheries and construction work will be permitted.
The second phase: July 31st, 2020
In the second stage, Bali will start reviving the island to its domestic tourists only. As per the strategy, tourism activities, tours and all the Bali attractions will reopen.
The Third Phase: September 11th, 2020

The governor, in the ceremony, stated, “I ask all Bali manners to carry out activities in these three stages by applying the New Era of Life Order Protocol in an orderly, disciplined, and with a full sense of responsibility, such as: always wearing a mask/face shield, keeping a distance, not crowding, diligently washing hands, and Clean and Healthy Behavior, as well as maintaining endurance.”
