Indonesia plans to start opening its borders to foreigners in November once 70% of its target population have received at least one vaccine shot, its health minister said on Tuesday. In an interview with Reuters, Budi Gunadi Sadikin said he was taking cues from the strategy adopted by Britain, which he said prioritised rolling out first doses and had achieved a lower rate of hospital admissions and fatalities.

Bali announced new opening date July 6 2021

“So for us we concentrate on the first dose. If we can vaccinate 70% of the target population of 208 million, if we can hit 140-150 million, 70% with the first dose, then we can gradually start reopening,” he said.” my calculation is that will be reached by November.” The November 2021 timeline is the first time a senior Indonesian minister has committed publicly to a dateline for reopening the country’s borders. Only foreign nationals who have diplomatic or working visas, or are eligible for other exemptions, are permitted to enter Indonesia. Budi said border restrictions would be eased even further once 70% of the target population had received two doses.

Cabinet ministers have also flagged reopening the resort island of Bali but no timeline has been set. Indonesia has recorded more than 4.1 million coronavirus cases and 139,000 deaths from COVID-19, but the positivity rate – the number of those tested who are positive – has dropped. It was 31% in late July, but was 2% on Tuesday. Social restrictions have been in place since early July, but have gradually eased to allow malls, restaurants, cinemas and factories to operate at limited and conditional capacity.

Southeast Asia’s largest economy, struck by one of the worst COVID-19 outbreaks in Asia, has vaccinated about 25% of its target population but Budi said vaccine rates would need to be almost doubled to 2 million shots per day by deploying the police and army to help dispense shots. Indonesia’s inoculation program has been hampered by distribution and logistics problems, and vaccine hesitancy, but it hopes more than 140 million people will have been vaccinated twice by next March. The health ministry is looking to use a network of about 300,000 midwives from the national family planning agency to help accelerate vaccinations, based on a model trialed in West Java. Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country, has the sixth highest number of people who have received their first vaccine dose, the minister said, after China, the United States, India, Brazil and Japan. Budi said he could not guarantee there would not be a third surge of infections in Indonesia. “It is extremely difficult to predict,” he said.

Bali visa on arrival earliest from November 2022

Bali visa on arrival earliest from November 2022 to protect the island from new Covid-19 transmissions announced Sandiaga Uno, the Ministry of Tourism on Thursday 26/08/2021. He explained the reasons behind not choosing Bali as a destination for essential travelers . The essential traveler is a visit by foreign tourist in the context of essential business trips and official trips. Sandiaga said that Bali was not chosen as an essential traveler destination as an effort to protect the Island of the Gods. The reason is that visits from abroad to Indonesia are considered to be the risk  for the new transmission of Covid-19.

All of these want to protect Bali because they think there are many triggers for new transmissions from PMI [Indonesian migrant workers] who return to Indonesia, not accepting essential travelers as an effort to protect Bali,” he said, Thursday (26/8/2021). According to him, Bali is expected to be able to reduce Covid-19 cases so that economic recovery by opening international borders can be carried out immediately.

Bali has also been named as the location for the G20 conference which will take place next year. Bali is also being pursued as a place for the holding of world tourism day . “The opening of Bali is a symbol of our awakening and hopefully we can gradually try it out and it can be carried out a few months before the G20 kicks  off which takes place in November 2022 or at least the end of the third quarter,” he said.

Bali focused on locals rather than foreign tourists

Bali focused on locals rather than foreign tourists says experts while overseas borders remained closed .  Hundreds of Australians were forced out of coronavirus-struck Bali earlier this month on board a special repatriation flight organized by the federal government and experts say the holiday island will never be the same again. In the past few weeks, as Indonesia grapples with soaring virus cases, almost 800 Australians registered their interest to leave Indonesia with Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs. To date, Indonesia has racked up nearly 3.9 million official coronavirus cases and more than 120,000 deaths. Indonesia has quickly become one of the worst hit nations, with experts suggesting local travel during the Islamic Eid holiday in May and the spread of the highly-contagious Delta variant are pushing case numbers up.

Bali focused on locals rather than foreign touristsDespite daily new infections in Indonesia appearing to trend down in August after hitting a high of more than 56,000 in July, Bali is in the midst of one of its worst outbreaks since the pandemic began. Prior to the pandemic, Bali attracted more than six million foreign tourist arrivals in 2019 alone and Australian and Chinese tourists making up more than half of that total. Domestically, 10.5 million Indonesian tourists visited Bali in 2019, while about 4.5 million travelled to the resort island in 2020. As an island reliant on international tourism, Bali moved to focus on attracting local visitors while overseas borders remained closed. Some say local tourists had been discriminated against prior to the pandemic, with the priority always on the international dollar.

But now, experts say the tourism sector will need to change their priority from overseas travellers to those holidaying domestically for months, maybe years to come. It’s time Bali stopped deifying foreign tourists, in the future after the pandemic it will be difficult to attract tourists because tourism competition will be even tighter between countries,” Nyoman Sukma Arida, a Tourism Faculty lecturer at the Udayana University, We’ve observed how Bali differentiates treatment between foreign and domestic tourists. But this doesn’t happen in other regions like Yogyakarta and Malang, where both tourists are treated equally,” Sukma said.

Bali still opening July when vaccination hits 70 %

All domestic air travel in Indonesia requires evidence of at least the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, except if you are travelling to transit to a departing international flight.  Currently, to enter Indonesia you must show evidence of full Covic-19 vaccination. These vaccination requirements also apply to children between the ages of 12-17.

Suitcase Killer Heather Mack soon released from Bali prison

Suitcase Killer Heather Mack is about to be released in October 2021 from Kerobokan prison and will be immediately deported to the Unites States. I am fearful and nervous of returning to Chicago. I’m not worried about the idea that people cannot understand the tragedy for my sake. But I’m nervous for [my daughter] Stella,” Heather said she scared that if she comes back to the States and to be exposed to what happened.Suitcase Killer Heather MackStella was born in prison during the sensational trial of her parents,  Mack and Tommy Schaefer, in March 2015. The two were convicted by an Indonesian court of killing Mack’s mother, Chicago socialite Sheila von Wiese-Mack, 62, in August 2014. Schaefer, then 21, bludgeoned Sheila to death with a metal fruit bowl in a room at Bali’s five-star St. Regis resort. He and Heather, then 18, stuffed the body into a suitcase, loaded the bloody bag into a taxi, and fled the scene. After the cabdriver alerted police, the couple was arrested at a budget hotel a few miles away.

Both were found guilty of murder in the first degree and locked up in Bali’s Kerobokan prison, with Schaefer sentenced to 18 years and Heather to 10. But Indonesian President Joko Widodo last week decided she will be released in October — nearly three years early — for good behavior. Heather, who grew up in the well-heeled Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Ill., will be immediately deported to the US. Yet she is considering leaving Stella, now six, temporarily with the Bali foster family who has raised her since she was two years old “I do not want anyone shoving a camera into Stella’s face. I know that it will happen to me but I will do my best to protect Stella from that trauma,

Suitcase Killer Heather MackI absolutely regret what happened. I loved my mom and I still do,” Heather said. “She wasn’t evil, and she didn’t deserve to die the way she did. I didn’t kill her for money. It was for my freedom and Stella’s freedom, or so I thought at the time. I think of her a thousand times a day.” Heather was raised in a $1.5 million Italian Renaissance-style home in Oak Park by her mother and her father, famed jazz arranger and composer James L. Mack. A guest conductor for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, he also worked with the London Philharmonic and  jazz legends like singer Nancy Wilson and pianist Ramsey Lewis. In 1996, James, then 66, married Sheila von Wiese,  22 years his junior. A political-science grad, Sheila told a publication  she had once worked as a researcher for Sen. Ted Kennedy, adding, “I even poured tea for Rose Kennedy a time or two.

Suitcase Killer Heather Mack

Parties at the family home were a hot ticket among musicians, literary-types and Oak Park high society. But police were called to the  home in 2004 when James’ ex accused Sheila of preventing a visit from James’ son. (He has another son and four daughters from previous relationships.) The ex claimed that Sheila would turn off the lights and pretend not to be home when they came to see  James, who was ill and confined to bed.

In 2006, James  who was suffering from Stage IV colon cancer and had been wheelchair-bound since 2000 died of a pulmonary embolism while on vacation with Sheila and Heather in Athens, Greece. Sheila left her husband’s body in a Greek morgue to continue her holiday, cruising off to Santorini with 10-year-old Heather. It was in Santorini that my anger at my mother started, It never really stopped. It grew.”

The new arrivals will spend two weeks in isolation at the Howard Springs quarantine facility in Darwin’s rural area. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has not said if it will organise an additional charter flight from Bali or elsewhere in Indonesia. It was also unable to provide updated numbers on how many more Australians in Indonesia are seeking to return home but has previously said it may be around 700 people.

200 Australians left Bali on charter flight Many Australians in Indonesia have expressed anger that the federal government has so far not stepped in to help them by sending repatriation flights to Indonesia. Earlier this year, hundreds of Australians stuck in India were rescued on mercy flights as the nation’s outbreak spun out of control. The whole embassy gets AstraZeneca, yet if you’re Australian here and you’re not part of the embassy, it’s tough luck,” Other Australians point to countries, such as France, which has supplied vaccinations to its citizens in Indonesia.

Charlie Knoles, his wife and children are one Australian family in Bali which did not manage to get a ticket on the first repatriation flight. I’m very happy for my friends who are on the flight, but it does feel very arbitrary for those of us who are left behind,” he said. There doesn’t seem to be any reason why we weren’t able to come home as well.”Mr Knoles and his family had been living in Bali for the past five years. He said at the time of the callout for Australians to come home in early 2020, he and his wife had COVID-19 so they were not able to come back.

“Ever since then, flights have been mostly impossible to get or very, very expensive to get,” he said.He said sometimes the price of flights was between $20,000 and $30,000 for a ticket.Northern Territory health authorities said the international repatriation schedule should not be affected by the current 72-hour lockdown in Greater Darwin and Katherine, which was triggered after a defence contractor tested positive to COVID-19 in the NT on Monday.
