June 7, 2012 – Indonesia will reopen Bali and Batam in July, according to the government

Joko Widodo, the Indonesian president, has announced that the government will reopen Bali and Batam in July as “locomotive areas” to boost the country’s tourism industry.

It is not clear how many travel bubbles Indonesia will be open, and which countries they will be opening with.

In March, Indonesia’s Tourism Minister Sandiaga Uno stated to reporters that Australia would be one of the countries he wanted to be included in a COVID-free corridor. Similar statements were made about New Zealand.

Australia is still a prohibited country, until the Indonesian Federal Government declares otherwise.

New Zealand is open to Indonesians returning, but they will have to stay 14 days at a government-approved facility before coming home. This would be a one way travel corridor.
