The Indonesian Tourism Association (GIPI-Bali) is urging the government of Indonesian to consider limiting the number of foreign tourists allowed to visit Bali in order to reduce some of the deleterious effects of mass tourism.

Quoted by Kompas.com, Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, chairman of GIPI-Bali, said, “It’s time that we think about the quality of tourists coming to Bali, let’s not only look at the quantity.”

According to Wijaya, there are many foreign tourists traveling to Bali looking for employment, some are becoming tradesmen, others are opening small warungs (food stalls) and working as illegal guides. Adding: “Not a few of these people are those unable to compete in their own countries; rejects of their native countries,” he complained.

What’s more, he continued, there are foreign tourists being cared for in Bali suffering from mental illness, penniless and without a ticket home. Others, he said, die in Bal destitute with no family connections.

Because of all these factors, said Ngurah Wijaya, Bali’s leaders have to find ways to filter those visiting Bali. “Don’t just look at how much money tourists bring, but also consider how much they will actually spend and the period of stay for their tourist visit,” he said.

Meanwhile, the director of safety for vital objects from Bali’s police headquarters, Commissioner R. Umar Faroq, warned that foreign tourists coming to Bali are not only the victims of criminal activity, but in some cases are also the perpetrators of criminal acts.

Umar revealed that in 2013 there were 78 crimes in Bali committed by foreigners resulting in 83 suspects brought to the justice system.

On the other side of the coin, there were 217 foreigners who were victims of crime resulting from 185 criminal incidents.

Umar extrapolates that in total there were 8,420 criminal incidents in Bali in 2013 or a criminal act once every 64 minutes.
