    Anyone who is looking for correct information on any issue with this "Chinese Virus" should look at somewhere else!!!!

    They might just say something. Could not find it in any other source. It could have happened.

    What do you think now? Two months later. Excess mortality for weeks in a row in the Netherlands 100 per day.

    Well kind of but not really. If you are a foreigner with out a KITAS and really want to get into Indonesia its pretty easy. I know several people that have been flying in from all over the world. About 2-3 months ago the the rules changed and foreigners can apply for a business visa and this will allow you to come into Indonesia for 3 months then once in country you can apply for a social visa and this gives you another 6 months and then after that you can keep getting your social extended until corona is over.

    The business visa is very easy to get, all you need is an "Indonesian Sponsor" any visa agency (easiest place to find one is Bali) will gladly be your sponsor for a "fee" they will also file for your TELEX and once that is approved they will apply for your VISA and poof!! your good to go, Indonesia here you come!

    Also check around there are lots of liveaboards still running in Komodo, Raja, Alor, Banda, etc. A big group of friends just did an LOB in Komodo 2 weeks ago and loved it. I also have a friend that owns an LOB and he has been non stop fully booked for the last couple months.

    The sponsor has to show an evidence of 10.000 USD per person sponsored, I think. And a negative PCR test. Anyway, not the simple visa upon arrival thing yet. For people who want to spend twoo weeks holiday not attractive at all yet.

    And a 14 day self quarantine on arrival to your destination is still mandatory.. Yet, very few seem to follow that sadly

    No need to do that since we will have to show negative PCR swab test before being allowed boarding the boat (at least for my case).
