JAKARTA (Bloomberg): Indonesia and Singapore are starting a quarantine-free travel between the two countries to spur the economy as Covid-19’s Omicron cases become more dominant.

A dedicated travel bubble arrangement between the resort islands of Batam-Bintan in Indonesia and the city state would boost tourism and other economic activities, according to Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto.

Fully-vaccinated visitors with insurance travelling via the Nongsapura international ferry terminal will be able to use the bubble arrangement, he said.

Singapore and Indonesia are among countries implementing a travel bubble policy as they attempt to transition to living with the coronavirus while ensuring the health-care system isn’t overwhelmed by the spread of the virus.
