【看CP學英文】印尼峇里島因疫情數月前開始實施旅遊禁令,近期政府準備重啟觀光,預計9月11日開放國際觀光客入境。

The Bali provincial administration is preparing to welcome foreign visitors in September following months of international travel restrictions because of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

根據雅加達日報,峇里島官員宣布配合防疫「新常態」政策,以及重啟觀光前的三步驟計畫。

Bali Governor I Wayan Koster has announced a three-step plan to reopen activity in compliance with “new normal” policies. 

印尼政府預計將於9月11日重新開放各大著名觀光景點,迎接國際觀光客來訪。

The approach entails reopening the region’s popular tourist destinations to international visitors on Sept. 11.

另一方面,印尼將於7月9日開放國旅,國內觀光客可率先前往峇里島度假旅遊。

Local tourists will be able to visit the island’s famous vacation spots starting on Jul. 9, Koster said.

據印尼媒體報導,峇里島官員無奈地表示,「到頭來,我們還是必須投降並祈禱好運降臨。」

“To that end, we must surrender ourselves and pray so that we will be graced [with good fortune],” he said after participating in a local religious ceremony on Sunday, as quoted by tribunnews.com.

這名官員於週四表示,峇里島的觀光景點皆已關閉直到有近一步的政策更新。

Koster said on Thursday that he had closed tourist destinations in Bali until further notice through a regulation.

然而,即使印尼政府實施鎖國規定,在峇里島的知名海灘景點包括坎古海灘、喇布安.塞海灘仍可見外國衝浪客。

However, the regulation did not stop several regions from reopening access to popular beaches, including Canggu Beach and Labuan Sait Beach in Badung regency, to foreign surfers.

新冠肺炎疫情重創峇里島觀光業,自從印尼爆出第一例確診案例,入境外國觀光客人數有數週降至零。

Tourism in Bali has been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of foreign tourist arrivals fell to nearly zero in the weeks following the first reported coronavirus cases in the country.

截至週日,峇里島累積確診1,849例,20人死亡。

As of Sunday, Bali had confirmed 1,849 COVID-19 cases and 20 deaths linked to the illness.
