Currently, the international port that is still not operating is the Tanjungbalai Karimun International Port. 

The operation of the international ferry port in Karimun Regency is because it's still waiting for a Circular from the Immigration Office. 

The government has also opened two airports in Riau Islands as international entry points.

The two airports are Batam's Hang Nadim International Airport and Tanjungpinang's Raja Haji Fisabilillah (RHF) Airport.
