Government has lowered the advisory for travel to Bali
Australia lowered the advisory for travel to BaliThe Australian government has lowered the advisory for travel to Bali in Indonesia. In 2002 the government raised the advisory level to "reconsider the need to travel", second-highest on a scale of four. It has now dropped the alert to the second-lowest level, "exercise a high degree of caution", which puts Bali at the same level as the Philippines and Thailand. The move has been welcomed by businesses, travel associations and schools in both Australia and Indonesia.
Australians currently account for over 26 per cent of inbound travel to the Indonesian island of Bali, and this number is expected to rise with the announcement. Travel will also be more accessible due to the strength of the Australian dollar and the high availability of cheap flights to Bali and the rest of Indonesia.
