North Sulawesi, COVID-19 and how it affects you

Map of the world - Arjen Bokhoven

The coronavirus affects us all. With the world opening up, this page will reflect the most recent changes in Indonesia’s travel and COVID-19 restrictions.

Update as of May 2022

  • On May 19th, the central government announced that a negative PCR or antigen test is no longer required for international travelers wishing to enter Indonesia, as long as you are triple-vaccinated.
  • Wearing a face mask is also no longer mandatory, except inside (public) buildings or certain public transport such as cars and buses.
  • As far as we are aware, masks are still required inside airplanes.

International flights

As of the time of writing, the most ideal flights would be with Singapore Airlines and Scoot via Singapore to Manado twice a week. Airlines are still finding ways to recover from the pandemic, so gradually we should see an increase in flight availability. Do check with your travel agent to ensure you get the best deal.

We are open and ready for guests

Indonesia reopened its international borders since April 1st, 2022. We follow this policy and welcome you to our beautiful resorts.

However if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

I'm a PADI Advanced Open Water diver, I do guest relations and resort management at Thalassa Dive Resorts Indonesia. Whether I'm diving the walls of Bunaken to spot schools of fish & turtles, or explore the sandy flats of Lembeh with its fascinating underwater creatures- I love all of it.
