Tourist quota in Bali for the next 100 years

The governor of the Indonesian island of Bali, Wayan Koster, is considering introducing quotas for foreign tourists for the next 100 years to reduce the risk of them flouting local laws.

The proposed quota system aims to reduce the risk of foreign tourists violating local laws. For example, some tourists, after running out of money in Bali, start working or starting a business on the island with a tourist visa, which is illegal under Indonesian law. The Governor believes that the quota system will free Bali from the pressure of mass tourism and the problems that the inappropriate behavior of foreign tourists creates for local residents.

The proposed quota system is scheduled to be discussed with local tourism associations and relevant stakeholders at a seminar on the future development of Bali, which will be attended by former Indonesian President Megawati Sukarnoputri and other officials.
