Free access for Aussies

In a plan to boost inbound tourism, Indonesia is considering removing its visa on arrival fee for the citizens of five countries.

Chosen for being the main targets for Indonesian tourism, the five countries are Australia, China, Japan, South Korea and Russia.

With 900,000 Australians visiting Indonesia last year, the free short-term visa would save Australians the current $41 fee, making Bali an even cheaper and more appealing holiday option.

Indonesia currently allows visa-free visits from ASEAN citizens, the Chinese territories of Hong Kong and Macau and four other countries.

Another idea to come out of the ministerial meeting was simplifying licenses to encourage more yachts and cruise ships to stop in Indonesia.
