Collecting Less at Baliís Gateway
VOA Revenues at Bali Airport Decline as Visa-Free Eligibility Grows

The State News Agency Antara reports that US$66.3 million in revenues were received in Bali from 1,804,443 foreign tourists who paid for a visa-on-arrival (VOA) during the first nine months of 2015.

The amount of funds collected by the government for visas-on-arrival declined due to the government’s liberalization of the number of foreign nationals now eligible for a visa-free visit to Indonesia.

Accordingly, Bank Indonesia’s Bali office reports that VOA receipts averaged US$10 million per month at the beginning of 2015, declining to US$6.6 million in June and only US$4.7 million in September.


In Search of a New Mental Paradigm
Bali Governor Launches National Movement for Mental Revolution

The Provincial Government of Bali declared the launch of the National Movement for Mental Revolution (Gerakan Nasional Revolusi Mental - GNRM) on Saturday, January 2, 2016, marking the occasion with the burning of signs depicting those people and mind sets that serve as obstacles to the revolutionizing movement.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika told those attending the launch: “Through the crushing and burning of those elements opposing or obstructing (the revolution), we want to be genuine and move beyond the merely symbolic and ceremonial. This declaration is not a show of force.”

A joint declaration underling unanimity of opinion and shared resolve to change national behavior that is considered to be thwarting development, was signed by Governor Pastika, the vice-chairman of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) Nyoman Sugawa Korry and the Provincial Secretary Cokorda Ngurah Pemayun.

Pemayun has been appointed as the General Coordinator of the GNRM in Bali.

The Governor has expressed the wish that the GNRM launched in Bali will grow into a National movement across all of Indonesia. Adding, “Let’s all let the mental revolutions start from ourselves.”

The Governor described how the mental revolution he desires can begin from the smallest fact, such as a refusal to throw trash away on roadsides, a commitment to being on time, and to join the race against time to achieve good results. Pastika also shared practical tips on how to develop a work ethic by working hard, working intelligently, working in a quality way, working with shared resolve and complete every task successfully.

The Governor described 18 characteristics that must be eliminated to support the GNRM. These include thinking negatively, procrastination, a lack of focus, a lack of self-confidence, a tendency towards pessimism, sloth, not caring, too ready to surrender to defeat, greed and self-interest, wastefulness, dishonesty, resistance to change, avoiding responsibility, a lack of commitment, disparaging standards of quality, feudalism and hypocrisy.

Governor Pastika said these characteristics are permeating modern life and delaying national development, leaving Indonesia behind other nations.

Pointing to Singapore as an example, Pastika pointed to the greater relative success of an island much smaller than Bali and poorer in natural resources.

He said Singapore’s greater success was due to the quality of their human resources and their ability to maximize the use of existing assets. Adding, “Meanwhile, we (the Balinese) who are rich in potential have become spoiled and soft.”


Safety in Numbers
Indonesian President Insists Liberalised Visa Policy will Not Negatively Impact National Security.

The Jakarta Post reports that President Joko Widodo has confirmed that the list of countries enjoying visa-free visits to Indonesian will soon be expanded to 174, underlining that this will be accomplished without compromising national security and security.

Speaking at the 2016 opening bell of the Indonesia Stock Exchange on Monday, January 4, 2016, President Widodo said: “I am not afraid of including more countries in the policy. Look at Malaysia and Singapore-more than 170 countries are included in their visa-free policy and they are still safe.”

The President assured that the Indonesian National Police are up to the task of maintaining security.

Claiming a 19% increase in foreign tourist arrivals after introducing free-visas for 47 countries in October, that number is now set to increase by 84 more nationalities.

Included in the 84 countries to enjoy stays with free visas are: Albania, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Andorra, Australia, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belize, Benin, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Chad, Comoros, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Gabon, Gambia, Georgia, Grenada, Guatemala, Guinea, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Kenya, Kiribati, Lesotho, Macedonia, Madagascar, Mali, Malawi, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Moldova, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nauru, Nepal, North Korea, Nicaragua, Palestine, Palau, Pakistan, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Rwanda, Somalia, Tajikistan, Togo, Tonga, Trinidad Tobago, Saint Kitts and Navis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, Samoa, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Serbia Montenegro, Sierra Leone. Sri Lanka, Solomon Islands, Sudan, Swiss, Turkmenistan, Tuvalu, Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

When, exactly when the citizens of the above countries will be able to enter Indonesia without a visa remains to be confirmed via a formal implementation order from the Government.


Predatory Lion Air Workers
Lion Air Porters Arrested for Pilfering from Passengers' Luggage at Jakarta Airport

Indonesian police have apprehended four baggage handlers at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport for stealing items from the checked luggage of Lion Air passengers.

Arrested and subsequently fired by the Airline are Saefulloh (22), Madun (29), Angga Jaya Pratama (28) and Andi Hermanto (29).

One of the men told police how he used a writing pen to open zippers on luggage and steal the personal belongings.

Police say that Lion Air passengers luggage was pilfered systematically in a criminal conspiracy that also involved the security staff of the Airline. 

The head of the Soekarno-Hatta Police Precinct, Roycke Harry Langie, called on the press to be patient while the police continue to investigate the case and identify all who are involved in the theft.

Speaking on Sunday, January 3, 2016, Langie told the press that police quietly investigated a theft that occurred on November 16, 2015. On Saturday, January 2, 2016, police were able to witness and record on CCTV cameras an actual theft from passengers’ luggage from Lion Air.

The film showed four Lion Air porters on November 16th opening passenger baggage in search of items of value. One of the porters arrested by police said he stole items because he was forced to do so by his superiors. The man told police that initially he did not want to participate in the theft, but was threatened by a superior with physical force if he did not cooperate and participate.

The Jakarta Globe reports that the investigation of theft from Lion Air passengers’ baggage continues to widen with police searching for 18 Lion Air baggage handlers who have failed to report to work since the investigation commenced.

The theft took place before the passengers’ luggage was loaded on the departing airplane.

Security guards from Lion Air reportedly coordinated the theft, telling the porters when the coast was clear to rob the bags.


Bali: Donít Rest on Your Laurels
Tourism Board Chairman Warns that Recent Honors Bestowed on Bali Wonít Last Unless Island Urgently Addresses it Many Shortcomings

The head of the Bali Tourism Promotion Board (BPPD), Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, tempered the recent euphoria felt after Bali’s selection by Travel+Leisure Magazine as the world’s best island and Asia’s best Island.

Quoted by Metrobali.com, Wijaya, speaking on Monday, January 4, 2015, said: “If, in Asia, Bali is always number one. But, in fact, there are many things that must be quickly addressed. If this is not done, Bali will be damaged and don’t hope that it will be ranked in future polls. In the coming years, Bali will not receive similar honors.”

Wijaya went on to point out that the scores were very close among those ranked highly in the Travel+Leisure poll and Bali can be easily displaced in future polls.

The Bali Tourism Board chairman called for Bali to urgently implement a provincial tourism law. He bemoaned the fact that the government continues to issue permits for new hotels even when supply already far outstrips consumer demand. This, he contends, will inevitably lead to a hotel price war.

“Just imagine, the best destination in world with very low prices,” Wijaya lamented.

He also pointed to the negative consequences of the many blatant violations of Bali’s zoning and building codes, illegal building in green zones, and the failure to honor set back rules from the shoreline and river banks.

Wijaya complained that problems of trash, traffic congestion and clean water were serious problems that Bali must address. He said the horrendous sight and smell of Bali’s largest rubbish dump at Suwung now infringes on main tourist areas in Benoa and greets people driving the new Bali Mandara Toll Road.

Shanghaied to Bali
Garuda Starts Twice-Weekly Flights Between Bali and Shangai

On Sunday, January 13, 2016, Garuda Indonesia Airlines commenced direct flights between Shanghai, China and Bali.

Quoted by The State News Agency Antara, Garuda’s manager for China, I Wayan Subagja, said the new service would operate twice-weekly using Airbus A330 aircraft.

China plays a major role in Garuda’s growth plans and Indonesia’s ambitious plans to welcome 12 million foreign visitors in 2016.

Garuda currently operates three flights each week between Beijing and Jakarta and daily flights on its Shanghai-Jakarta and Guangzhou-Jakarta routes.

Starting in January 2013, Garuda Indonesia already flies four flights each week between Beijing and Denpasar, having added a new service between Guangzhou and Bali in late 2015.

In addition, Garuda operates additional charter flights during peak travel periods, including Chinese New Year and Summer Holidays.

Deputy ĖGovernor Clarifies Baliís Opposition to Gay Weddings and Receptions

The latest Bali official to join the ongoing debate on same-sex weddings in Bali, Deputy-Governor I Ketut Sudikerta, told Metrobali.com that he was in communication with the chairman of the Council of Traditional Villages in Bali (MUDP), Jero Bendesa, regarding the problem of gay and lesbian weddings in Bali.

Sudikerta said special emphasis must be put on the absolute prohibition of holding same-sex wedding receptions in Bali.

“I have already told Jero Bendesa and our traditional people, including stakeholders in tourism and hotels: Don't even once undertake activities that are forbidden by religious norms,” said Sudikerta on Wednesday, January 6, 2016.

Sudikerta said: "Same-sex wedding or same-sex ceremonies have disturbed the public order and culture of Bali. This has soiled the traditional village system. Because of this, I hope there will be sanctions applied from the traditional villages.”

Sudikerta said that because the same-sex ceremonials had taken place in traditional village setting, the Council of Traditional Villages should hand out suitable punishments.

200 Businesses Lost in a Single Fire
Blaze Destroys 204 Small Tourist Shops in Legian, Bali

204 small shops the Legian Traditional Village Market (Pasar Desa Adat Legian) were destroyed by fire on Wednesday, January 6, 2016, resulting in billions of rupiah in damage.

The fire is believed to have started at around 3:45 pm in one of the sales kiosks at the back of the market, possible due to a short circuit that ignited a LPG tank, helping to quickly spread the inferno.

Despite heavy traffic in the area at the time of the blaze, fire fighters arrived at the scene 15 minutes after being called.

Preliminary estimated of damage to the shops and merchandise is put at Rp. 5.6 billion.

The market, owned by the Traditional Village of Legian, is being relocated temporarily to a parking area at Lapangan Tri Sakti in Legian to allow the traders to continue their business activities.

According to NusaBali, in keeping with local tradition, religious ceremonies conducted by the village will soon be performed at the scene of the fire in order that rebuilding activities can commence.

Village officials have agreed that vendors will be allowed to use the parking area during the reconstruction period without charge in order to reduce the burden of the catastrophe.

Traders normally pay the village a daily rental of approximately Rp. 6,000, plus a monthly charge of Rp. 10,000 contribution for utilities.

Officials on both a village and regency level are now trying to secure funds for the rebuilding of the traditional market and the erection of a temporary tent over the parking lot now being used as an interim market.


Frowde Found Floating
Australian Expatriate Alistair Frowde Drowns in Pool at his Sanur, Bali Villa

Alistair Robert Hugh Frowde (63) – an Australian expatriate living in Bali, has been found dead in the swimming pool of his accommodation located on Jalan Tungak Bingin Blok H, Nomor 2, Sanur Jauh.

Frowde’s body was floating in his pool at 5:00 am on Friday, January 8, 2016.

As reported by Kompas.com, police are still investigation the cause of the man’s death in cooperation with forensic examiners from Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital.

As reported by NusaBali, according to Frowde’s wife, Rini Ariyanti (29), the Australian had returned from playing golf with friends at the New Kuta Golf Club the previous evening and, after complaining he felt very tired, went to bed at 7:30 pm. When she discovered the man missing from his bed in the early hours of the following day, she commenced to search for her husband who was found floating the swimming pool.

Preliminary suspicions are that the man suffered a heart attack and drowned, suspicions that can be investigated further if the man’s family authorizes an autopsy.


Family Tragedy
Brother-Sister from Surabaya Drown in the Pool of a Kuta Hotel

Two Indonesian children drowned in the pool of the Hotel Bali Summer in Kuta on Thursday, January 7, 2016.

DenPost and NusaBali, report that the two children, Faiz Rizky (10) and Kanza Akila Nanza Azara (6), were brother and sister from Surabaya, East Java, who were guests at the hotel at the time of their deaths.

While details surrounding the deaths remain unclear, their bodies were found in the Hotel’s pool at 12:30 pm and immediately evacuated to nearby Siloam Hospital.

Presumably unsupervised at the time of their deaths, the children’s parents, Sulaeman (35) and Purhita Nursandy AR (33), only found the body of the two after an hour-long search assisted by the Hotel’s security team.

When a security guard spotted the children’s in the pool he jumped into the pool together with the Father, lifted the children to the pool’s edge where attempts at reviving the two youngsters were unsuccessful.

The family had been guests at the hotel for several days prior to the tragedy.

Best Western Premier Sunset Now Operating as The Ramada Bali Sunset Road Hotel

The U.S.- based Wydham Hotel Group has christened its third Ramada Hotel in Bali with the assumption of the management of the former Best Western Premier Sunset Road.

The 271-room property is now known as The Ramada Bali Sunset Road Hotel is situated on the busy divided roadway connecting Kuta and Kerobokan.

As reported by The Jakarta Globe, the Hotel is owned by the Sun Motor Group.

The Wyndham Group’s president and managing director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim, Barry Robinson, cited Bali’s ability to attract 4 million tourists each year, the recent expansion of the Island’s airport and enhanced spending nationally on tourism spending by the Indonesian government as helping to drive Wyndham’s desire to add more Indonesian properties to its portfolio.

Wydham currently operates 7,670 hotels with 667,000 rooms worldwide.


Highly Unsafe?
Low Safety Rating Given to Many Indonesian Airlines by AirlineRating.com Questioned

The airline safety ranking website AirlineRating.com has identified ten Indonesian airlines as qualify or their lowest safety rating of one star out of a possible seven stars: Batik Air, Citilink, KalStar Aviation, Lion Air, Sriwijaya Air, Nam Air, TransNusa, Trigana Air, Wings Air and Xpress Air.

Meanwhile Garuda Indonesia obtained a modest three stars, Thai Airways (four stars), Philippine Airlines (six stars) and Singapore Airlines (seven stars).

AirlineRating.com claims its star rating system represent an amalgamation of public ratings compiled by Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) certification, Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) standards and International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) safety parameters.

As reported by Nusa Bali, the Indonesia National Air Transport Association (INACA) is questioning the ranking and methodology employed by AirlineRating.com.

Arif Wibowo, the chairman of INACA, said on Thursday, January 7, 2016, “Safety is mandatory and INACA is committed that all (Indonesian) airlines give priority to safety and security.”

INACA is seriously questioning the validity and evaluation criteria used by AirlineRating.com, suggesting the method of evaluation lacks transparency and firm standards making the end result’s non-supportable.

Arif compared the AirlineRating.com website with the highly respected Skytrax rating who have honored Garuda for its high standard of in-flight service. He also said that the rules in place for Indonesian air carriers established by the Ministry of Transportation are based on established international safety standards from the ICAO, FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Arif found in somewhat incongruous that the National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia only received a three-star safety rating when Malaysian Airlines, with the recent losses of MH370 and MH17, achieved a five-star safety rating. On Christmas Day 2015, a Malaysian Airline flight from Auckland to Kuala Lumpur was discovered flying on the wrong route for eight minutes due to the incorrect filing of a flight plan.

A number of Indonesia airlines received no review from AirlineRating.com, including AirAsia Indonesia, Merpati Airlines, Rex Australia and Trigana Air. It is also highly curious that Merpati was listed as “unrated” by the website when, in fact, the airline has been grounded and ceased operations in 2014. 


After a File, Crocodiles!
Bali Deputy Governor Wants a New Prison at Suwung, surrounded by a Moat Filled with Crocodiles.

As support grows for closing Bali’s restive Kerobokan Prison and relocating it to a new location, Bali’s deputy-governor, I Ketut Sukerta has voiced his agreement for the Governor’s suggestion that a new prison be built at Denpasar’s rubbish tip – Suwung TPA.

Quoted by Beritabali.comm Sudikerta said on Thursday, January 7, 2016: “We support the relocation of the Kerobokan Prison. The region of the current Kerobokan Prison is not representative. That area is packed with transportation and also packed with the dense urban population living there.”

Sudikerta described the proposed new location at the Suwung TPA as spacious, covering 32 hectares, 10 of which can be allocated for building a new prison.

Sudikerta proposed that any new prison be surrounded by a man-made moat stocked with man-eating crocodiles to devour any prisoner trying to make an escape.

The Deputy-Governor said any final decision on relocating the prison rests with the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights.

It's in the Bag
Bali Airport Takes Preventative Steps to Thwart Baggage Theft by Airline Staff

As police continue to unravel a large and well-organized ring of Lion Air workers stealing from passenger luggage at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport, PT Angkasa Pura I that manages Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport has increased surveillance of baggage handling activities and begun a forced rotation of workers assigned to security and baggage handling.

Trikora Harjo, general manager of PT Angkasa Pura I in Bali said: “We will rotate ground handling teams at least once a week to prevent the formation of syndicates stealing from passengers’ luggage, as happened at another airport.”

As reported by Bisnis Bali, the decision to rotate ground handling teams was arrived at via a meeting between PT Angkasa Pura I, the District IV Airport Authority, airport security, ground handlers, police and the military examining the recent crime ring uncovered at Jakarta’s airport.

Surprise inspections will also be conducted by law enforcement elements to thwart any attempts at thievery at Bali’s air gateway.

Random background checks are also being conducted on airport workers and control on new recruitments re-examined.

CCTV coverage is also under review to prevent any “blind spots” where thievery might occur.

For added security, every group of four porters handing the embarkation and disembarkation of disembarkation of luggage has not been assigned one security supervisor.


2015: In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb
Bali by the Numbers: November Arrivals Down 7.9% as Bali Headed for Quiet Close to 2015.

Because of the time lag the issuance of official arrival statistics, the figures for the month of November were only in hand during the first week of January 2016. Expect the year-end figure for 2015 in early February.

November 2015 arrival figures do, however, provide a fairly telling look at how Bali will end the year in terms of foreign tourist arrivals.

With 272,796 foreign tourist arrivals in November 2015, November holds the distinction - together with August, of being the second month in 2015 in which month-on-month arrivals declined in comparison to 2014.

November arrivals declined 7.9% as compared to the same month one year before, suffering, as did August, from cancelled flights caused by volcanic eruptions.

Year-on-year through the end of November 2015 total foreign arrivals hit 3,633,056 travelers, a 6.27% increase over the first eleven months of 2014.

It now appears highly probable that Bali will end 2015 a few thousands visitors short of the 4 million mark.

Meanwhile, tourism officials in Bali are projecting 4.2 million foreign visitors in 2016, an increase of some 5%.

Highlights from Major Source Markets

Australia - Australian arrivals declined 31.1% in November as compared to November one year before and are down 1.69% for the first 11 months of the year.

A weak Australian dollar, volcanic uncertainty and a very inopportune pronouncement by the head of immigration at Bali’s airport have all negatively impacted Australian arrivals to Bali.  A statement in October by an immigration officer saying Australians could obtain no more than two visas-on-arrivals in a single 12 month period was quickly reconsidered and hastily withdrawn ten days after its utterance. But, sadly, the damage had been done and many Australians cancelled plans for a Bali holiday after being bullied with the threat of instant deportation. In the absence of a media offensive by immigration and tourism authorities to set the matter straight, the lingering damage of that announcement continues to be felt.

In partial mitigation, President Widodo has mentioned Australia as included among the next batch of countries to be eligible for visa-free visits to Indonesia. When, however, Australians and others will actually begin enjoying visa-free visits remain in doubt as the enabling legislation has yet to be promulgated.

Whether a liberalized visa-free policy for Australians visiting Indonesia will reverse the current decline remains to be seen.

China – Month on month, PRC arrivals increased 38.1% in November and are up 18.93% for the first 11 months of 2015. Despite growing economic uncertainty in Mainland China, expect Chinese numbers to Bali to grow because of Bali’s relative affordability, close proximity and greater air access.

Japan – Japanese arrivals continue to improve, up 6.21%  for January-November 2015 over the same period on year before. Japan arrivals in 2015 regained nearly five years of lost ground.

Up and Comers – The following markets have turned in strong performances in 2015, improving over the first 11 months of the year 2015: U.K. (28.73%), USA (18.71%), India (30.16%), The Netherlands (13.10%), Canada (19.84%), New Zealand (13.10%) and Switzerland (27.13%).

On the Decline – The following markets lead among the poor performers for Bali during the first 11 months of 2015: Malaysia (-14.53%), Singapore (-18.92%), and Russia (-31.96%).

Bali or Bust
Benoaís Strong Appeal as a Cruise Passenger Port

Kompas.com reports that Bali’s southernmost cruise port of Benoa is considered the key to the Island’s growing success as a cruise port in Indonesia.

“A cruise industry leader postulates that if Benoa can becomes 'turn around out port,' the number of tourist served by Bali can increase appreciably. Cruise ships will bring many foreign tourists,” said Yasa Sediya, managing director of Cruise Asia on Thursday, January 7, 2016.

Sediya said that in order for Benoa to become a "turn around out port," the depth of the port must be enhanced to accommodate larger cruise ships.

“When that is realized (Benoa as a turn around out port), other ports will feel the effect. This is the key to the development of the Port of Benoa. If there is good coordination for berthing ships and the terminal is suitable, (I am) confident there are many other cruise ships that will bring their ships to Indonesia,” Sediya added.

Yasa explained that the term “turn around out” is used by the American Association of Port Authorities (APPA) designating ports where passengers can embark and disembark a ship and the beginning and end of a cruise itinerary.

A fire has destroyed a meeting room, gymnasium, garage and two luxury rooms at The Mansion Baliwood Resort & Spa in Sayan, Ubud.
