Indonesia Is Preparing To Open Borders For Travellers From Selected Countries.


Indonesia is set to reopen Bali, the popular island attraction, from October 14 to international travellers from certain low-risk countries, including China, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, and the UAE.

This was announced by the Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan on October 4. He also added that the travellers will need to make an advance hotel booking,  at their own expense, for a minimum of eight-day stay for quarantine purposes.

Sandiaga Uno, minister of tourism and creative economy, said that only direct flights will be allowed to land on the island, with no transit passengers.

He also said that the initial target markets for the island are business travellers and returning expatriates to Bali. The island will be opened up on a broader scale gradually, in stages, in a sustainable manner, taking care that Covid cases do not increase, he added.

Some steps, including requirements for incoming foreign travellers, were still being finalised by the government.
