Maltese youths document struggles of Bali communities in new charity campaign

Maltese youths Benjie Zammit and Jack Attard Cassar have launched a charity initiative called ‘The Other Side of Bali’ in an attempt to capture the everyday lives and struggles of local Bali communities.

While Bali may be recognised globally as a luxurious holiday hotspot, these two youths and activists attempt to capture the more humble side of the Indonesian city, shining a light on locals’ struggles to make ends meet and put food on the table.

Through this initiative, Zammit and Cassar hope to spread awareness and encourage followers to collect funds and contribute to these very real, hard-working Bali communities by covering rent payments and providing resources.

Donations can be made via Revolut on +356 99066714 or by visiting theothersideof-bali.com.

UK, US tourists & more to pay €7 charge when visiting EU as of 2023

Visiting EU countries will come at a charge as of 2023

The European Union has just announced the end of free travel to its member states for non-EU citizens.

The much-anticipated visa waiver scheme, ETIAS, will kick on May 2023 and is reportedly different to the visa scheme as it is completed online and does not require biometric information.

European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) allows freedom of movement to EU travellers and residents but prompts payment from those coming from 600 countries around the world such as the US and UK, amongst many others.

The system is reportedly largely automated and approval will be granted within minutes for 95% of applicants; maximum approval time could be up to one month for ‘very exceptional cases’ and will cost €7 for those aged between 18 and 70.
