Singapore Bubble Travel Plans, These Riau Islands Tourism Objects are Featured
adhocpublications – Head of the Riau Islands Tourism Office, Buralimar stated that the travel bubble concept was suitable, among others, in Nongsa, Lagoi, Cempedak Island, Nikoi Island, Kepri Coral and Telunas. A number of these areas are considered exclusive.
“There are no people there. A comprehensive and strict health protocol can be applied,” said Buralimar, Monday, January 25, 2021.
With the travel bubble policy, citizens from the two countries who made the agreement can freely visit and free from quarantine obligations. The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy is seeking to open a limited border with Singapore, through a travel bubble policy, especially in Bintan and Batam, which have so far relied on visits by foreign tourists from the Lion country.
Buralimar also plans to invite hygiene certification issuing authorities in Singapore to check health protocols in Bintan Regency, Riau Islands. “We will invite SG Clean to check our health protocol,” he said.
SG Clean is a campaign to improve public hygiene standards amid the Covid-19 pandemic in Singapore. SG Clean certificate is given for hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and others that meet the requirements.
According to Buralimar, the certification is needed to convince prospective travelers from Singapore to have a vacation in Riau Islands if the travel bubble applies. In addition, in order to convince Singaporean travelers to visit, the Covid-19 transmission rate must be suppressed for 21 days. “This week it has been sloping. That’s what we hope, the transmission rate is sloping, and the vaccine is successful,” he said.
