Seven Seas Update

Dear Shipmates

The good news is, it's looking positive. Indonesia is open to all nationalities and there have been some recent developments regarding international travel. Flights are now arriving with international visitors to Bali, Jakarta and Manado.

The recently introduced 2 night 3 day quarantine (for visitors fully vaxed with a booster) can be done in 5 star hotels where guests are free to move around and use the hotel facilities and services. The hotel staff actually live on site. Considering most guests usually overnight at least 1 night after the long journey to Indonesia an extra night may be manageable by most.

Another development is the plan to totally drop the quarantine and re-introduce visa on arrival by April. It might happen sooner in March as Tourism Minister and Bali Governor have agreed to reinstate a visa on arrival (VoA) and remove quarantine for foreign tourists entering Bali . This is the best news we have had in the last 2 years.

We here at The Seven Seas can help assist guests with visa requirements should a visa before entry still be required at the time of your journey.

Should you have a trip booked with us or would like to join a trip in the coming months we have space on the following trips:

  • April 03 - 17: Sorong to Ambon via Triton Bay and Banda Sea
  • April 19 - May 03: Ambon to Ambon via Banda Sea
  • May 09 - 25: Bau Bau to Labuan Bajo via Wakatobi and Komodo

Feel free to contact us for booking, availability, updates and advise on International travel to Indonesia.

Kind Regards,

The Seven Seas Team
