Government Threatens to Close Illegal Bali Villas

August 29, 2008 Deadline Looms as Badung Regency Authorities Insist They Will Close Unlicensed Illegal Villas.


Nusa Bali reports that the "clean up" of hundreds of unlicensed villas operating as commercial ventures continues apace, with some 6 villas receiving visits my a multi-department inspection team each working day.

With the latest deadline of August 29, 2008 for finalization of permits looming ahead, the newspapers reports that hundreds of villas may soon face closure.

The Head of the Tourism Department for the Badung Regency, Drs. I made Subawa, told Nusa Bali that he has done all within his power to encourage villa registration as his team continues to facilitate the villa registration process.

Unfortunately, according to Subawa, on the nearly 300 unlicensed villas now on his officeís books, only 58 meet the basic licensing requirements with only 35 having actually obtained the required permits.

Not included in the Tourism Department's survey are another 182 villas used as private residences or unoccupied which therefore fall outside the licensing requirement.

Tourism officials freely admit they are encountering problems in the licensing and registration process. The number of villas involved and their locations means that the government team is only able to inspect six villas on any given day and the owners are often absent when the team comes to call.

Deadline Ahead

Subawa told the press that those who ignore the registration process and have not registered their commercial villa before August 29 deadline face the very real possibility that their villa will be shut down.
