What is a travel bubble?
Simply put, a travel bubble is an agreement between two or more countries to open up their borders for travel. This is generally accomplished between governments that are managing the virus well in their respective countries. For example, several nations that have come close to establishing a travel bubble are Australia-New Zealand and Malaysia-Indonesia.
Singapore-Indonesia Travel Bubble Delayed
The highly-anticipated air travel bubble between Singapore and Indonesia will be delayed after Indonesia saw a significant rise in local community COVID-19 cases, which also follows Indonesian government's decision to extend public mobility restrictions (PPKM) to prevent further transmission.
According to Jakarta Post, Indonesia's Minister for Tourism and Creative Economy - Sandiaga Uno, shared that discussions of a travel corridor with Singapore will only resume once domestic COVID-19 cases have fallen. Additionally, this will also depend on Singapore's COVID-19 daily count as the country is currently undergoing Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) after a recent surge of cases.
