Indonesia now opening borders for yachts & crew

Indonesia has officially opened its borders and is welcoming yachts and their crew. While the country remains closed to visitors, visa requirements for some groups including yacht crew are now being lifted.

“Port quarantine restrictions widely vary from port to port and are still in flux”, reported 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.”

Indonesia is an ideal destination as the world begins to recover from the pandemic. A current rarity around the world, borders reopening in Indonesia is a perfect opportunity to experience a cruising paradise.

Captain Thomas welcomes inquiries, stating, "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.”
