Indonesia is taking steps to secure a larger share of the “gray” travel market. Pensioners and senior citizen travelers over the age of 60 has been projected by the United Nations World Travel Organization (UNWTO) to be one-third of the world’s population by 2025, with the highest concentration of older citizens concentrated in Japan, Holland, France, German and Italia.

NusaBali recently quoted the head of tourism for the province of Bali, Ida Bagus Subhisku, saying: “Several operators in Bali have created packages for older traveler, but this has been on and off. Meanwhile for long-staying senior citizens, there is the problem that we still lack comprehensive regulations and lack of supporting infrastructure for this market segment – still lacking greatly from what we would like to see.”

Subhisku said that the province is making preparations to make Bali an attractive destination for gray travelers. “One (of these steps) is the formation of a special body called the Bali Retirement Tourism Authority (BRTA).” said Subhisku.

The BRTA was formally established under Gubernatorial Decree No. 2 of 2012 in order to meet the needs of gray travelers bridging programs between the government, the business sector, local host communities and the travelers. “The authority will guarantee the well-being and safety of senior visitors via coordinated regulations with the agencies and ministries concerned – such as health, investment, immigration and finance,” explained Subhisku.

Subhisku said the government is targeting for 10,000 senior citizens to resident in Bali by the year 2020.
