Indonesia to halt issuing visas for foreigners being in India to curb coronavirus spread

Indonesian Chief Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto said on Friday that the country will stop issuing visas for foreigners who have been in India in the past 14 days to prevent the spread of different coronavirus strains.

Indonesians arriving from India will be allowed to enter, however, but must follow stricter health protocols and quarantine, the minister said. The measures are effective Sunday. India on Friday reported the world’s highest daily toll of new cases, surpassing 330,000.
