The government is set to waive visa requirements for another 84 countries starting this week in an effort to boost arrivals of foreign tourists to the country.
"We decided to apply the visa-free policy to 84 more countries starting this week," Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Rizal Ramli said after a meeting at the ministry's office in Jakarta on Monday, as quoted by news agency Antara.

Australia, Brazil, Ukraine, Kenya, Uzbekistan, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Palestine, Honduras, Pakistan, Mongolia, Sierra Leone, Uruguay, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Costa Rica, Israel, Albania, Mozambique, Macedonia, El Salvador, Zambia, Moldova, Madagascar, Georgia, Namibia, Kiribati, Armenia, Bolivia, Bhutan, Guatemala, Mauritius and Paraguay are among the countries mentioned by Rizal, whose nationals would no longer need a visa to enter Indonesia.

"The total number of countries so far [that fall under the visa-free entry policy] since October is 174," added Rizal.
Hopefully, said Rizal, the extension of the free-entry policy would be able to boost foreign tourist arrivals to the archipelago, which was targeted to reach 20 million by 2019."
