Indonesia is now open and welcoming yachts. It’s official – visas are now open to all nationalities, as long as they fit some of the requirements. The visas are mainly for business travel but they are also open for yachts and their crew.
“Port Quarantine restrictions widely vary from port to port and are still in flux”, reports Captain Thomas Taatjes of Asia Pacific Superyachts. “Yachts and their crew can enter with these visas and crew can also fly in. The maximum quarantine is five nights onboard for yachts arriving and five nights at a hotel for fly in crew joining the vessel”.
An exceedingly attractive Asia Pacific cruising destination until the country shut down borders, Indonesia opening up is good news for yachts, superyachts and charters waiting to enter.
Indonesia is a great destination to plan for as the world moves toward the backend of the pandemic and those with a penchant for exploring and adventure will find nothing short of a cruising paradise and a rare opportunity in finding a highly favored cruising destination reopening.
Captain Thomas welcomes inquiries, remarking, “Indonesia now is open and it is relatively straight forward and relatively easy to enter, especially when compared to other Asian countries”.
“We are standing by ready to share information and offer quality service to yachts interested in visiting this amazing country. We’ve also been successful in making special arrangements for a speedy entry for our clients once it is determined to visit Indonesia.”
