The G20 Bali summit will be happening in Nusa Dua, Bali on 15-16 November 2022. This is a meeting of 19 countries plus the European Union.
To ensure the safety of all the heads of states and their delegates Bali will impose restrictions that will affect a lot of people.
1. Expect traffic congestions in South Bali.
There will be “restriction of activities” on certain roads which likely involves road closures to allow smooth traffic for VVIPs.
- Restriction of activities on the road towards The Apurva Kempinski Bali from 12-17 November.
- Restriction of activities on the road towards the ITDC Nusa Dua from 12-17 November.
- Restriction of activities on the road towards GWK on 15 November.
- Restriction of activities on the road towards the Tahura Mangrove (Tanjung Benoa).
From 11-17 November, from 6am to 10pm, some roads will also have limited traffic by applying the even/uneven rule. If your license plate ends on an even number then you can only use your vehicle on even days and vice versa.
This even/uneven rule runs from 6am to 10pm applies to;
- Simpang Pesanggaran – Simpang Sanur
- Simpang Kuta – Simpang Pesanggaran
- Simpang Kuta – Tugu Ngurah Rai
- Tugu Ngurah Rai – Nusa Dua
- Simpang Pesanggaran – Gerbang Benoa
- Simpang Lapangan Terbang (DPS) – Tugu Ngurah Rai
- Jimbaran – Uluwatu
- Jalan Tol Bali Mandara
- Jalan Uluwatu II
- Jalan Raya Kampus Udayana
It is highly recommended to avoid these areas as there are likely to be heavy traffic congestions caused by police blockades to let VVIPs go through.
2. Schools closed, employees work from home.
Businesses and schools in Kuta, South Kuta and South Denpasar are told to allow students study online from home and employees work from home. This is for the period of 12-17 November.
3. Bali airport limited road access.
On 14 and 17 November the main roads to/from the Bali airport will be closed at certain times. If you need to get to the airport on these days make sure you plan for extra time to reach the airport.
The red lines on the map are roads that will be closed.
The green lines on the map are roads that will be open.
These diversions apply to;
14 November from midnight to 2am and from 1pm to 9pm.
17 November from 12 noon to 7pm.
4. Bali airport limited operations.
The Bali Airport will be have limitations on commercial flights on 14 November (the day before the summit) and 17 November (the day after the summit) to accommodate the private aircraft bringing in VVIPs and delegates.
Several commercial flights will be cancelled and any remaining commercial airlines still allowed to fly to Bali will only be allowed to park for a limited time (less than 105 minutes for large aircraft).
- On 14 November the Bali airport will have limited flights between 13.00h and 19.00h local time (1pm – 7pm). It is estimated that only up to 24 international and 8 domestic commercial flights will be allowed to operate.
