Although the exact date of U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to the U.S. remains unclear, U.S. Secret Service (USSS) officers are combing the island of Bali in anticipation of a possible visit in late March.

Radar Bali reports that USSS officers have met with Bali's provincial chief of police, General Sutisna, for discussion on coordinating security for the U.S. Chief Executive.

Bali police spokesman, Gede Sugianyar, told the press that USSS staff were in Bali on March 4, 2010, accompanied by senior staff from the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta. In a meetings with General Sutisna, the USSS was told how Bali's security situation remains relatively conducive for Obama's visit. During that meeting, U.S. Embassy officials expressed their appreciation for the continuing exemplary work performed by Bali police in keeping the peace.

The USSS is conducting security surveys of a number of sites in Bali including the Uluwatu Temple and the Monkey Forest in Ubud. Neither Indonesian or U.S. official sources are prepared to confirm the actual dates or itinerary of President Obama's visit to Indonesia during a whirlwind 2 day stay.

The advance team from the USSS reportedly numbered 8 people who toured tourist areas and accommodation options that might be visited by the President.

The USSS arrived on an island in the midst of an island already in a high level of alert on the eve Hari Nyepi which will take place on Tuesday, March 16, 2010. Police have put into place a number of measures, including the deployment of 2,000 officers at key areas in Bali and strict surveillance measures at Bali sea ports and Ngurah Rai International Airport in anticipation of Bali's "day of silence" on Tuesday, March 16, 2010.
