According to Statistics Indonesia (BPS), 264,516 Indian tourists visited Bali in 2017, 353,894 in 2018, and 374,043 in 2019.The government plans to immediately reopen the tourism in Bali for foreign tourists under the travel bubble scheme.The Bali government has also set three regions that are free from Covid-19 transmission or green zones to welcome tourists, namely Ubud in Gianyar Regency, Sanur in Denpasar City, and ITDC Nusa Dua in Badung Regency. Apart from the tourism sector,
Sandiaga said Indonesia and India are ready to cooperate in the investment and trade sectors. “These will surely be in the scope of tourism and creative economy,” he added.
