Governor I Made Mangku Pastika has banned further travel agency licences, saying 800 businesses were already licensed but only 300 were actually operating.
He made the announcement in the provincial assembly on Saturday.
The governor also told the assembly he was considering whether licences owned by non-operational travel agents should be revoked – and that licences would be forfeited if businesses were sold.
He said the action was necessary to protect the image of tourism in Bali.
