Hey guys,

Wondering what the go-to website is for Indonesian news/updates in English?

I'm mostly interested in Covid and international border related news. What's out there?

Sorry to hear Inzider, sounds similar to what WA/Qld (lesser extent) are right now. Been shut up shop inside their own bubble in Aus but when everything starts opening they'll be left behind.

South Australia and Tasmania have pretty much the same covid policies as Qld and WA but seem to get zero flack about it. They have Liberal Party premiers, of course.

Queensland gets flack because the Tweed border situation has been a debacle. The fact that NSW is equally to blame gets less attention....Liberal Premier. WA gets flack because, whatever the policy, anyone appearing as smug as McGowan will always get flack.

Fark these images are sad from the Bali many of us know and love.

Finally feel as I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Got my second dose yesterday no side effects whatsoever.

And just locked in flights for 6 week Indo winter 2022, some decent deals until Saturday with Jetstar.

Would go earlier like right now if could seeing quarantine in Aus is being scrapped, but have work commitments and building early next year too, so surfing with the hordes it will be.

If I read that article correctly Aussies could potentially be banned completely . I suppose it is a possibility now.
"A ban on all foreign travelers coming from 11 countries and territories with known Omicron cases is still in effect. Indonesians with travel history to these regions are required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Indonesia.

These countries and territories are: South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Mozambique, Eswatini, Malawi, Angola, Zambia, and Hong Kong. It remains to be seen if the ban would be expanded to cover other nations where Omicron has been detected, namely Australia, Canada, and several European countries."

@tubeshooter , yeah I was trying to figure if they meant we get banned or 14 days quarantine , let’s just hope omicron proves to be way less virulent. So far no deaths from those who have got the omicron strain.

I'd be very surprised if omicron wasn’t already in Indonesia , not the most reliable testing at the best of times .
