JAKARTA, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- The Indonesian government has cut the quarantine period for international visitors from eight to five days according to the coronavirus incubation phase, Coordinating Minister for Maritime and Investment Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said on Monday.

"If the results of PCR tests on the fourth day are negative, they are allowed to leave quarantine on the fifth day," Pandjaitan said at a virtual press conference.

Indonesia will reopen international flights to Bali on Oct. 14 for foreign visitors who come from countries with a positivity rate of less than five percent and have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

According to the government, foreign visitors must test negative for COVID-19 within three days before departure, have health insurance with a minimum coverage value of 100,000 U.S. dollars, as well as proof of accommodation booking while in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, their conditions will be monitored by a track application system and tests by PeduliLindungi, an application developed to assist the government to contain the further spread of COVID-19 when they are in the archipelagic country.

Pandjaitan added that the trend of the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia has become much better with a decline in cases of up to 98.4 percent compared to the peak of the second wave on July 15. Enditem
