Bali breathed a collective sigh of relief on Tuesday, December 26, 2017, when the People Republic of China formally revoked its travel ban on Chinese tourists holidaying on the Island. 
China, now the number one source of tourist visitors to Bali, had formally issued a travel warning forbidding Mainland Chinese visitors from visiting Bali in late November 2017, when volcanic ash cloud movements caused a closure of Bali’s airport for 2.5-days. Charter flights operating between China and Bali were suspended a short time after. 
The Assistant Deputy of Market Development for the Asia Pacific at the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism, Vinsensius Jemadu, said the original ban on travel to Bali from China was set to be formally reviewed for a possible extension on January 4, 2018. The revocation of the travel ban was, however, announced ahead of schedule on December 26, 2017. 
With the revocation of the travel ban, Bali tourism awaits the return of charter flights from China to Bali that, in normal times, averaged some 30 flights per day. 
The removal of the travel ban also elicited a positive response from the Deputy for International Market Development from the Ministry of Tourism, I Gde Pitana, who said the announcement made him “happy.” Pitana said he has become optimistic that the resumption of Mainland Chinese flights will improve the income for restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions, entertainment and shopping centers, souvenir shops, bus and transportation companies, and Island guides. 
Meanwhile, Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism, Arief Yahya, pointed to the Friday, December 22, 2017, visit of Indonesian President Joko Widodo to Bali as having proved to the world that Bali remains a safe holiday destination.
