Immigration Upgrades at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport to Speed Processing of IMF-World Bank Delegates
In anticipation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) – World Bank Conference coming to Bali in October 12-14, 2018, immigration officials at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport are taking all necessary steps to prepare to handle the estimated 15,000 delegates expected to come to Bali for the event.
As reported by Balipost.com, Airport immigration authorities are working in cooperation with the Airport’s Management Angkasa Pura I to install automatic immigration gates and special service counters for use by IMF-World Bank Officials visiting Bali. Officials hope the new autogates will be in place in August for trial operations well in advance of the actual conference.
Five of the new autogates will be installed in the international arrival hall and ten more in the international departure hall. Additional computers are also being installed at existing immigration counters at the airport to accelerate manual passport processessing.
150 additional service staff are being added by immigration to ease passenger flows during the IMF-World Bank Conference.
