Kompas.com confirms that foreign tourist continue to complain bitterly about long lines encountered upon arrival at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport.
The CEO of the Bali Tourism Development Corporation (BTDC), I Made Mandra, on Monday, August 16, 2010, told the press that many foreign tourists are unhappy with visa-on-arrival service at Bali's airport, saying "many foreign tourist complain that they must stand in line for long periods in front of the immigration desk at Ngurah Rai Airport."
Blaming the lack of sufficient immigration counters at the airport, Mandra continued, "we hope that the DPRD-Bali (Bali House of Representatives) will join in considering the condition of Ngurah Rai International Airport which is the main gateway for foreign tourists."
The man charged with managing Bali's largest tourism enterprise at Nusa Dua, Mandra said the traffic jams along the Ngurah Rai Bypass, particularly around the Dewa Ruci monument and the airport's entrance, also represent genuine impediments to the development of the island's tourism.
"If these traffic congestion problems are not urgently addressed, the tourism sector in Bali could decline in the future," he warned.
