Lodges in Bali need to be exempt from the Indonesian Eid Pageant journey ban

The tourism industry in Bali is working to reopen international tourism. The Bali Hotel Association is opposed to complying with the closure mandated by the Eid Festival lockdown.

  1. The Bali Hotel Association called on the government to be exempt from the upcoming Eid Festival restrictions that ban sea, land and rail travel.
  2. According to the BHA, the ban itself will have very profound effects on all facets of the community in Bali. Businesses will close, unemployment will rise and negative effects will be inevitable.
  3. The BHA continues to support the Indonesian national and local government in their efforts to gradually reopen Bali to international tourism

A letter to officials in the Bali Tourism Government earlier this week addressed the concerns of 157 hotels and resorts over the impact of the Indonesian national government’s announcement of sea, land, air and rail travel from Dec. May 2021 across the country to ban Eid Festival.

Eid al-Fitr, also known as the “Festival of the Breaking of the Fast,” is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims around the world and marks the end of the month-long fast from Ramadan to sunset. This religious oath is the only day in the month of Shawwal that Muslims are not allowed to fast.

The majority of the population in the Indonesian province of Bali is Hindu.
