Tourism Australia is excited to be welcoming back travellers from Indonesia to Australia, with Australia reopening its borders for fully vaccinated visa holders, tourists, business travellers, and other visitors around the world from 21 February 2022.
The announcement is part of Australia’s planned re-opening of international travel and builds on quarantine-free travel arrangements with Singapore, which came into effect on 21 November 2021, and for visitors from Japan and South Korea along with Working Holiday Makers from 15 December 2021. Visa holders who are not fully vaccinated will still require a valid travel exemption to enter Australia, and will be subject to state and territory quarantine requirements.
Tourism Australia Regional General Manager South and South-East Asia, Brent Anderson, said he hopes Indonesians will jump on the opportunity to fall in love with Australia all over again. Tourism Australia will be kicking off a new tourism campaign to welcome Indonesian visitors back to Australia in the coming weeks. As part of this campaign, Tourism Australia will be working with a range of key distribution and airline partners to maximise opportunities to drive bookings and recovery for Australia’s hard-hit tourism economy. Partners include in Jakarta and Surabaya Avia Tour, Dwidaya Tour, Golden Rama Tour, Smailing Tour, Wita Tour, Celindo Tour and Monas Tour who will provide tactical offers aimed at stimulating travel to Australia from Indonesia.
Tourism Australia is also partnering with Garuda Indonesia and Singapore Airlines to support the recovery of the airline industry and recommence services into Australia in the coming months. More information, including tips on where to go and what to see, is available on Australia.com.
