NASIONALXPOS.CO.ID, BADUNG — Checking tourist levy vouchers will not only be checked through Bali’s entry points, such as airports and several sea ports, but in accordance with applicable regional regulations and governor regulations, checks will also be carried out at tourist destinations in Bali.

This was conveyed by the Head of the Bali Provincial Tourism Office, Tjok Bagus Pemayun, at his office, Bali Provincial Tourism Office Monday, (26/2/2024) after a preparatory meeting for checking tourist levy vouchers which was attended by representatives of related agencies and tourism associations.

It was further explained that this activity would be carried out after the tourist levy program had been running for three months. So checks at tourist destinations will be carried out regularly starting in May 2024, at least once a week, simultaneously in several destinations.

“We will carry out regular monitoring, as a form of enforcing existing regulations, to check whether tourists have paid or not,” stressed Tjok Bagus.

“For those who have paid, they will be allowed to enjoy their trip comfortably, and for those who have not, they will be directed to make payment at the location,” he added.

By carrying out checking activities at destinations, Tjok Bagus urges all foreign tourists who will come to Bali to make payments in advance from their countries, through the available system, namely “lovebali.baliprov.go.id” so that their holidays are not disturbed by levy payments in Bali .

Travel agents who handle foreign tourists should always urge their tourists to prepare their levy vouchers while they are in Bali, because at any time there will be random checks from the Bali Province Tourism Civil Service Police Unit at tourist destinations or other places.

“Tour guides are also expected to be able to provide clear information regarding tourists levy to the tourists they handle, and facilitate tourists in making Tourist Levy payment,” he explained.

In line with the Head of the Bali Tourism Office, the chairman of GIPI Bali, Ida Bagus Agung Partha Adnyana, also agreed to check this levy voucher at tourist destinations, and even Gus Agung, the nickname of the Sanur tourism figure, also suggested that checks also be carried out at accommodation before tourists check out and at the International Departure of I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport.
