The Indonesian Minister for Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno has announced that the Indonesian government is planning travel corridors with Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
The plans emerge the week after news that the country is planning to open for foreign tourists in Bali, Bintan and Batam from July.
It is likely that visitors will initially be limited to three “green zones” on Bali, Nusa Dua, Sanur and Ubud.
Both Qatar and the UAE have continued flights to Indonesia throughout the pandemic meaning that restarting travel will be far easier than other destinations without current flights.
Measures have already been agreed with the governments of Poland and Ukraine. It’s hoped that other destinations will also agree travel corridors in the coming weeks. Talks are due with Singapore soon and are also expected with China, India, The Netherlands and South Korea.
