After Bali, Batam and Bintan will be Targeted to Reopen for Foreign Tourists
Batam and Bintan in the Riau Islands are targeted to become tourist destinations that will reopen for foreign tourists after Bali.
"For other destinations besides Bali, of course, the next in line are Batam, Bintan, and 18 priority (tourist) destinations that we continue to monitor," said Sandiaga during the Weekly Press Briefing in Jakarta, Monday (9/27/2021).
The Island of the Gods, Bali, is being prepared to welcome back foreign tourist visits in October 2021.
Nevertheless, the re-opening will continue to pay attention to the situation and developments of Covid-19 in Bali.
There are three locations that have been prepared as pilot projects for the reopening trial, namely Sanur, Ubud, and Nusa Dua.
"However, we want all tourist destinations in Bali to be included in the green zone category," he said.
Entrance of foreign tourists long term visa
Batam and Bintan are considered suitable for some tourism development efforts.
