Foreign Tourists Could Soon Pay US $10 to visit Bali

Bali Regional Representatives said last week that they will support a new plan from the regional government to charge foreigners USD 10 for each visit to Bali in the future. They hoped that the government can get Rp 1 trillion from the new tax. “We have to improve tourist services, which need money and contributions. We will fix the roads and the tourism destinations on the island, so the tourists won’t be disappointed when they come to Bali. With this plan, Bali will get Rp 1 trillion if there are 7 million visitors per year,” said Governor Koster to in Denpasar. Meanwhile, the Head of Bali Regional Representatives, Nyoman Adi Wiryatama, said that members of the regional government will support the plan and agreed with Koster that maintaining the Balinese culture needs a lot of funds and contributions.
