KOMPAS.com – Indonesia imposed travel restrictions on three other countries namely Denmark, Norway, and the UK, bringing the total number of countries with entry prohibitions to 13 amid concern over the Covid-19 variant omicron.

This was brought up by Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno during a weekly press briefing on Monday, Dec. 20.

Hong Kong, however, has been taken out of the list.

“Initially, 11 nations have already been banned from entering [Indonesia]. But, Hong Kong has been removed from the list,” said Sandiaga.
