Visitors to Bali over Christmas and the New Year can expect tighter security after six senior police officers were threatened by terror group ISIS.
Police personnel have been alerted to intensify their checks on those entering Bali at ports of entry such as Gilimanuk harbor and Ngurah Rai Airport, after the shocking and tragic attacks in Paris on Friday.
Bali’s Tourism Agency stated that the Province’s tourism sector has incurred Rp45 billion in losses due to the eruption of Mount Barujari in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara
“There’s no indication it will decrease in energy any time soon and the last time it was active in 2009, it went on for 18 months,” Bond said.
In response to complaints from the Island’s tourism industry made to the Island’s House of Representatives (DPR-Bali) about illegal foreign workers, the head of the Ngurah Rai Immigration office has issued written instructions that will impact dramatically on frequent visitors to Bali.
What to do if you’ve got overstay because of eruption?
Indonesia’s Transportation Ministry has extended the closure of four airports to Friday after Mount Barujari on Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, began spewing volcanic ash, leaving thousands of travelers stranded.
Indonesia’s foreign tourist arrivals rose 9.84 percent in September from a year earlier, a quicker pace than August’s growth of 2.87 percent, the statistics bureau said on Thursday.
Indonesia will extend the closure of an international airport on popular Bali resort island to Thursday (Nov 5) due to ash from an erupting volcano, an official said Wednesday, grounding more than 100 flights.
Tourism managers in Bali are calling on the government to increase the number of immigration inspection points in anticipation of the growing number of visitors resulting from liberalized visa policies and guests staying for extended periods who will not necessarily depart via Bali’s airport.
