JAKARTA -- Indonesia reopened the popular holiday island of Bali to travelers from select countries on Thursday, offering a ray of hope to the tourism-dependent economy, which has been ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic.

International travel to the island from 19 countries, including China, Japan and South Korea, along with a number of countries from the Middle East and Europe, is now permitted. The trial reopening will last a month, Tourism Minister Sandiaga Uno said on Monday.
