According to the Indonesian-language Bali Post, delegates arriving to participate in the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Conference in Bali April 13-17, will be required to show a medical report from their home country stating they are free of the SARS virus. The announcement was reportedly made by the Bali Chief of the Ngurah Rai Airport immigration office, Drs. I Made Widiartha when speaking to the press on Saturday, April 5th.
In making the announcement, the immigration chief did not indicate what sanctions, if any, might be applied to PATA delegates failing to produce the required medical report.
Meanwhile, Mr. Peter De Jong, the President of PATA, based in Bangkok, has issued assurances to international delegates attending the Bali conference that they will be able to enjoy free and unimpeded access to the Country at airport gateways providing they are free of any symptoms connected with the SARS virus.
