47 Foreign Visitors to Bali in July 2020

July is traditionally one of the busiest months of the year in Bali in terms of foreign tourist arrivals. But, in July 2020, during the global pandemic, it was a different story entirely. 

Foreign tourist arrivals for July 2020 counted by Bali Immigration totaled 47 people. As reported by Beritabali.com and based on data from the Bali Statistic Agency (BPS-Bali), foreign arrivals in Bali one year ago in July 2019 totaled 604,323 foreign visitors – declining more than 99% month-on-month in July 2020.

June 2020 arrivals were equally disappointing, recording only 32 foreign visitors.

BPS-Bali reports hotels in Bali in July 2020 recorded an average occupancy of 2.57%. In July 2019, the average occupancy recorded by BPS was 61.71%. 

Due to the lack of visitors, many hotels have closed their doors and suspended operations until more guests, from domestic or foreign sources, begin to materialize.
