The Indonesian Tourism Minister, Sandiaga Uno has said that the discussion about reopening the international travel corridor is on the final stage.

Sandiaga said that the government plans to implement a 2 days quarantine upon arrival for every international traveler who visits the island when the border reopens. “We plan to revise some of the points in the Law and Human Rights Regulation Number 26/2020 such as the quarantine policy for international visitors upon their arrival. But before making a decision, we need to hear the opinion of the Covid-19 Handling Task Force and Health Minister.” Sandiaga said.

During an event that was held in the John Hardy Boutique and Gallery on Tuesday (30/3), Sandiaga also said that the government plans to revise the stay permit policy for international visitors. “We also plan to extend the length of the visitors’ stay, from 30 days maximum to 60 days using their holiday visa.” Sandiaga added. But he explained that the visitors could only gain this leniency after finishing their 2 day quarantine at a designated government facility.

Apart from that, he said they will also implement an e-visa for the travelers to give them easier access to apply for their visa. Meanwhile Sandiaga is quite optimistic that the target to distribute Covid-19 vaccines to half of Bali’s population will be achieved by mid-year. “We’re optimistic that we could distribute the vaccine to at least 2 or 3 million people in Bali by June or July this year.” Sandiaga concluded.

A two day quarantine? Why quarantine at all? The incubation period is well known, averaging 11.5 days for an asymptomatic to show symptoms....while being infectious from the second day. The 21 day quarantine in China was not set arbitrarily, its science.

48 hour quarantine in a designated facility...seriously. What's the ppint! Might as well be 10 days or not at all. Let's not go down the path with Thailand and its day to day different mandate that will make your head spin. Confusing and frustrating at the same time.
