Visitors to Bali have doubled on the first day of national holiday

29 October 2020 - Bali airport had received more than 6000 domestic tourists in one day (27/10), this is the highest number since the last seven months. Normally, there were about 3000 visitors landed daily in Ngurah Rai International Airport since the island opened its border for domestic tourists on 31 July 2020. So far, things have gone well, even much better than some pessimistic predictions which only 10% raise from the daily visit rates. "We estimate there might be up to 10% increase of domestic tourists will come during the long holiday, compared to the current daily average. But we will see it again later, as there is no significant improvement happened til now, "said Andanina Dyah Permata Megasari, the Communication and Legal Manager of Bali airport earlier on Tuesday (27/10).


Later on that day, the airport recorded 6,305 passengers had arrived via the domestic terminal, by Tuesday evening, 27 October 2020. This number has increased by 25% compared to the number of arrivals on Monday, 26 October 2020, with 5,047 passengers. The flights are mostly dominated from the Jakarta routes, either from Soekarno-Hatta Airport or Halim Perdanakusuma. Tourists from Surabaya, Makassar, and Lombok are also can be found on the island during this holiday season. 


Still, according to Andanina, the airport authority has prepared several procedures to anticipate the possibility of delay and cancel flights, due to the bad weather conditions. Furthermore, the number of officers-on-duty have been increased to supervise the implementation of health protocols and promoting #safetravel campaign. They will inspect every area in the airport to encourage people wearing mask, wash hand regularly and keep a safe distance.

The deputy chief of the Indonesian Hotel General Manager Association in Bali,  I Made Ramia Adnyana has expressed his concern over the plan of the Indonesia central government to keep the border close for the rest of 2020. "...with another four to five months to go, we are not sure how Bali tourism industry will be able to survive until the beginning of 2021," he said. Covid-19 has caused many Balinese workers in tourism industries losing their jobs; most of them are forced to go back to their villages to do farming or fishing only to survive.

At the moment, all the travel and hospitality business owners are expected to focus on marketing their services to domestic travellers and upgrading the facilities based on the new-normal health protocols. "We expect 70% of domestic tourists. So we think that foreign tourists will not be able to travel until the end of the year. Let us first consolidate ourselves," said Luhut. 

The head of Bali tourism office, I Putu Astawa also explained that - the decision on reopening the country is not only determined by the central government, but this is also related to other countries' policies. Even if Indonesia has opened the borders to international tourists, but on the other hand, other countries have not allowed their residents to leave their countries, then it's pointless.

Bali tourism recovery program is expected to be started by the end of 2020

The head of Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association or PHRI Badung IGA Rai Suryawijaya mentioned "Since April, almost 96 percent of hotels (in Bali) have closed, because there are no more tourist visits, the number will even continue to increase to 100 percent, because existing tourists will need to go back to their home countries". 

However, almost all of the members of Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association in Bali agreed with the Government’s decision to focus on handling COVID-19. "We are currently in a crisis situation, what we need to focus on right now is to get all the people contracted by COVID-19 a proper health care. So that people can calm down, and continue to their normal life soon, "  Added IGA Rai Suryawijaya. 

Nonetheless, IGA Rai Suryawijaya also mentioned about the recovery program for Bali tourism businesses is expected to be started by the end of the year. He hopes that Bali tourism can be reopened to tourists at Christmas and the new year 2021.

8 April 2020 - After being viral on many media for the last couple days, finally the plan for ‘Sipeng Nyepi’ (18, 19, 20 April) initiated by Bali Customary Village Council is officially being cancelled. This discourse has caused many pros and cons among all communities in Bali, some people considered it is not right to call this event as ‘Nyepi’, while others think that it will be in-effective since the airport will remain open during those 3 days, and other sensitive reasons related to those who are working as a daily worker, worry about the basic supply for the family during the Nyepi. "There is no longer ‘Bali Sipeng’, but we advise all Balinese people to do ‘Yasa Kerthi’, silence, stay in their homes, unless there is an urgent matter," said the head of Bali Customary Village Council.

In the meeting between PHDI (The highest religious constitution in Bali) and MDA (Bali Customary Village Council) held today in Denpasar, other points were also discussed related to ‘Peneduh Jagat’ ceremony which will be held at Mother Temple Besakih on 22 April. This ceremony will be attended by limited participants only, all the Balinese are expected to do the ceremony in their own house and keep staying at home.

Another plan for “Nyepi” on 18,19 and 20 April will be discussed by Bali Customary Village Council and related authorities

7 April 2020 - Some media online and Bali local television channels have announced the plan on having a Nyepi for another 3 days this month on 18,19 and 20 April. However the head of Bali Customary Village Council, Ida Panglingsir Agung Putra Sukahet has informed that this is not final yet. "That's still only a plan. We need to discuss this matter further on April 8th, and we will decide later. If so, of course, there will be an official circular letter from the Bali Customary Village Council," he added.

For your information that this Nyepi will be different from the regular Nyepi all Balinese people celebrate every year. This upcoming Nyepi is called ‘Sipeng Nyepi’ or ‘Eka Brata Penyepian (amati lelulungan)’ which means the only restriction is not allowed to go outside the house. Everyone will be still able to do normal activities, while sending prayers to God at home with electricity and internet service within these 3 days. 

Furthermore, Ida Penglingsir Agung Putra Sukahet also mentioned that this plan also can be considered as an alternative discourse in mitigating the spread of coronavirus outbreak in Bali. Among spiritual leaders these 3 days will be also giving a chance to ‘Bhuta’ (evil spirit) to become harmony 'somya'. By knowing this information days ahead, all the people in Bali are expected to be able to buy some basic needs more wisely without having to cause "panic buying" in prior days before Nyepi.

Government Waives Income Taxes for Six Months to support Economy during Covid-19 Crisis

(Jakarta March 12th 2020)

Finance Minister of Indonesia Sri Mulyani Indrawati announced that Indonesia will grant a six-month tax break for employees, manufacturers, and importers, starting as soon as next month (April), as part of its second fiscal stimulus to help support and stimulate the economy which has been strongly afected by the corona outbreak crisis.

She said the government would suspend collecting employees' income taxes, also known as PPh 21. The ministry's tax office would waive the income tax paid monthly (PPh 25) by entrepreneurs in the manufacturing sectors.

Indonesia and particularly Bali, whose economy depends on tourism has been hit hard by the corona crisis. The shutdown of China stopped all visitors coming from China. The Chinese tourists are now the largest group, while the Australians are now second.

The minister has earlier projected that the largest economy in Southeast Asia could see its growth slowing down to 4.70 percent this quarter, from the 4.97 percent pace in the last quarter as the Covid-19 outbreak disrupted China's economy, Indonesia's largest trading partner. The country has so far 34 confirmed cases of the corona, with one fatality which occurred in Bali.

Also, Indonesia's stock market stopped trading for 30 minutes on Thursday 13th March, the first time since the market installed the 5 percent circuit breaker to slow panic selling amid worries of a widespread Covid-19 outbreak in the country.
The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) halted trade at 3:33 p.m. local time after the index fell more than 5 percent to its lowest level since June 2016.

Much to the chagrin of the pundit class, sometimes there are no satisfying answers. To quote Kurt Vonnegut:

A devastating financial crisis led business owners and corporate executives to be especially wary about adding staff or investing in new equipment. Some worry about risks from Washington or overseas. Others are seeing consumers maintain their slow-but-steady spending, providing little incentive to deploy their cash stockpiles.

Readers with an interest in technology can get a sense of their extraordinary achievements from last month's cover story of American Cinematographer, which is available online.
