“Sleeves Up” for Reopening Tourism in Bali by Vaccinating Everybody

Hotels and beaches are empty, unemployment is the norm. The people of Bali are suffering. Travel and tourism are the lifeline for this Indonesian island, and a plan has been announced that will be community-wide and provide the support necessary to make it a success.

  1. The vital travel and tourism industry has stalled on the island of the gods.
  2. The Bali Hotel Association is working with the government to ensure a comprehensive vaccination program for workers in the visitor sector and the population of Bali at large
  3. Sleeve Up is an initiative to possibly reopen the Hindu island of Bali to visitors and to set up COVID-19 tourism corridors on the island.

In a press release today, the Bali Hotels Association said it fully supports the Indonesian government’s vaccination program with the Bali is my life #sleeveup campaign. The Bali Hotels Association has encouraged and supported member hotels and resorts that have registered as vaccination centers.

We are all together in this message that we want to keep sending out.

This latest campaign is called “Sleeve Up”. It is a community-wide initiative to encourage everyone to get vaccinated. Simona Chimenti, Marketing and Media Relations Director of the BHA, says: “We continue to support the plans of the national and local government to achieve their vaccination goal. The governor of Bali and his government aim to vaccinate at least 2.8 million people in 100 days as officials attempt to reach at least 70 percent of the province’s population to achieve herd immunity. Nearly 140,000 people have been vaccinated to date, according to the provincial government, of whom more than 44,000 have received the two required doses since the province began vaccinating people in mid-January.

The mass vaccination program for people in Ubud, Nusa Dua and Sanur is part of the preparation for the possible reopening of the province to foreign tourism by the middle of this year.

The establishment of these three green zones is part of the effort to open up tourism in Bali.

Indonesian officials are also proposing a “travel corridor agreement” with several countries that are considered successful in containing the spread of the coronavirus, have high vaccination rates and could offer mutual benefits. eTurboNews recently named Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and Creative Industries Sandiaga Uno as its most social minister.

Uno said earlier – with examples for countries like the Netherlands, China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Singapore.

Balinese people understand that vaccination is another important part of the new CHSE health and safety protocols.

We continue to encourage our Bali Hotels Association member hotels to support vaccination as part of the comprehensive program ‘Do it all!’ Approach.

The hotels and resorts of the Bali Hotels Association ensure that the safety and well-being of their guests, partners and employees remain a top priority. It is for this reason that our member hotels and resorts have implemented health and safety protocols prescribed by the government and official worldwide organizations. These include;

– The mandatory wearing of masks, except when eating and drinking, and the physical distance of 1.5 meters are respected
– temperature tests
– Wash your hands
– Registration with state contact tracing procedures.
