(3/8/2004)

Mr. I Gede Nurjaya, the Director of the Bali Tourism Authority (BTA) has called on stakeholders in Bali's tourism industry to enumerate any objections and problems they have with the recently imposed visa policy in a formal report to his office.

The request, made during a meeting with tourism professionals organized by the Pacific Asia Travel Association Chapter (PATA) on Friday, February 27, 2004, was made by the Chief of the BTA in order that his office can accumulate data to assist the Government in its ongboing review of the new policy.

Urging people to channel their comments for compilation through the local PATA Chapter, Mr. Nurjaya promised that any information would be shared with the Central Government and with immigration authorities charged with evaluating the policy.

Those attending the meeting with Mr. Nurjaya, claimed the change in policy had been inadequately socialized internationally as evidenced by the more than 80 tourists refused entry to Bali during the first month of the new immigration policy. Many called on the Government to devise an official policy that would allow a short term stay permit for the nationals of countries not on the visa-on-arrival list who arrive in Bali without a visa. In a strict enforcement of the current policy, nationals of those countries ineligible for visas-on-arrival are refused entry and immediately sent back to their home countries or to Singapore to obtain the necessary visa before attempting to return to Indonesia.
