MEIMELALI.COM: Officials Implement Extended Travel Restrictions After Recent Travel Ban.
Officials of the National Covid-19 Handling Task Force have announced a travel restriction policy as the previous travel ban ended on the 17th of May 2021.
After 12 days of a travel ban policy that was implemented in several areas of Indonesia including Bali, the central government decided to extend with a travel restriction policy as people would be still allowed to travel with certain requirements from the government in accordance to the Decree Number 13 Year 2021 about travel restrictions after the Eid Al-Fitr celebrations.
The government explained that the travel requirements are mandated for both domestic land transportation and air travel. Travelers are required to show documentation of negative results from either a PCR test, rapid antigen test or a Genose C-19 breath test that was taken at least 24 hours prior to their departure. Officers are authorized to conduct another Covid-19 test for travelers who show any symptoms of Covid despite the negative result of their previous documents. Each traveler is required to fill out e-HAC form from the official government’s apps. Children below 5 years old are not mandated to be tested positive from Covid.
Meanwhile, at one of the main entrances of Bali island, Gilimanuk Port has been receiving more passengers since the travel ban ended on Monday (17/5). The Head of Jembrana Police Department, AKBP I Ketut Gede Adi Wibawa said that he deployed more officers to ensure each traveler is complying with the government‘s instruction by showing all the documents that are required in order to gain access into the island.
“We will build 4 guard houses to anticipate the influx of domestic travelers after Eid Al-Fitr celebration that will be actively stationed tomorrow on the 18th of May 2021.” AKBP Wibawa said on Monday (17/5).
