The Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy has revealed that the country was preparing to welcome tourists in July 2021.

The announcement was made at the Arabian Travel Market 2021.

Indonesian President, Joko Widodo revealed that destinations such as Bali, Batam and Bintan will serve as ‘locomotive’ regions to kickstart tourism for the whole country, given that the pandemic is handled as expected.

“In preparation, the government has carried out a widespread vaccination program for targeted groups, including the tourism workforce. In addition, the government has also initiated the Cleanliness, Health, Safety, and Environmental Sustainability (CHSE) certification program throughout the tourism sector in Indonesia,” a press statement by the Tourism Ministry read.

While Indonesia prepares to re-open their borders in July 2021, travel in South East Asia sees a more hopeful future as Thailand has also opened popular destination ‘Phuket’ for tourism.
