Indonesia is finally opening to foreign tourism.
It’s started in Bali at the beginning of April, where the visa on arrival (VOA) is already available, which means that you can travel to Indonesia without any type of restriction or request any type of special visa, you must present the certificate of double covid vaccination, and a negative PCR done two days before traveling. The VOA has it´s 35 dollars and allows to stay 30 days, extendable to another 30.
And now we can say it´s the same situation on the rest of the country, including Jakarta which is the city that interests us to travel to Mentawai, in addition to having the double covid vaccination certificate and a negative PCR two days before flying, with the VOA everything would be ok.
It seems that the visa on arrival in Bali was a kind of test, and not increasing the cases of covid in a significant way, it´s been transferred to the rest of the country.
For our part, we have already started working on the surfcamp to has it in optimal conditions to receive the first customer from June .
A big hug to all and see you soon
