DPR Lauds Move to Suspend Entry of Travelers from India

Jakarta: Ahmad Sahroni, Deputy Chairman of the Commission III of the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR), has lauded a move by the Directorate General of Immigration of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, to suspend entry of travelers from India.

"The move by the immigration (directorate general) is right and fast. This is owing to the number of COVID-19 cases on an upsurge in the country," Sahroni said in a statement here on Sunday.

Sahroni believed that Indonesia's policy is very reasonable because the handling of COVID-19 in the country is still ongoing, so it would be very risky to admit citizens from countries with very high rates of pandemic transmission.

"The handling of the pandemic in the country is currently still ongoing, so it is only natural that Indonesia first bans the entry of travellers from countries with high number of COVID-19 cases," he said.

The politician from the National Democratic (NasDem) Party also reminded immigration to always monitor and update information regarding the condition of COVID-19 abroad, so that they can make policies quickly and precisely.

The Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights has officially issued an entry ban for travelers from India to Indonesia.
