Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and the Creative Economic, Sandiaga Uno, wants to increase domestic and international tourists’ flows to Bali by introducing COVID-Free- Corridors (FCC).
As reported by Beritabali.com, Sandiaga said he hopes that Bali can copy and emulate the example set by Morowali, Southeast Sulawesi, where the government is welcoming foreign workers vaccinated against COVID-19.
In principle, a COVID-Free Corridor for Bali would facilitate easier access for domestic and foreign tourists who present certified proof of vaccination against the coronavirus.
The Tourism Minister announced his plans for a COVID-Free Corridor (FCC) from his new office in Bali while sharing three key programs to accelerate the recovery of the tourism industry and creative economy. Sandiaga said COVID-Free Corridors (FCC) to welcome foreign visitors would only be created once the concept and implementation are studied and discussed with local stakeholders.
The second critical program put forth was a program of Rp. 9.9 trillion in soft loans to tourism ventures in Bali.
Finally, the third program under consideration is for special attention to Bali in the allocation of the COVID-19 vaccine.
