The Indonesian authorities lifted the quarantine after entering the country.

The Indonesian authorities have completely lifted the quarantine for travelers vaccinated against the coronavirus, leaving only the requirement for a negative PCR test result. This was announced on Monday at a press conference by the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of the country Sandiaga Uno.

“This decision, which takes effect immediately, was taken after a successful experience of entering the islands without quarantine Bali, Batam and Bintan,” the Today newspaper quoted the minister as saying. “We have not recorded a sharp increase in the number of infected people there,” the head of the department said. "Now the quarantine will be lifted on all international entries into the country," he stressed.

Meanwhile, the authorities maintain requirements for obtaining visas in advance. Exceptions have been made for citizens of 42 countries who can obtain a visa upon arrival in Bali. Russia is not among them.

About 143.7 thousand foreign tourists arrived in Indonesia in January, which is 13.6% higher than a year earlier. However, this figure is significantly lower than the level observed before the start of the pandemic, when on average about 1 million tourists arrived in the country every month.
