There are 160 countries that are granted visa-free policy by Indonesia, therefore I think there is a need for further review related to this visa exemption, because I think Indonesia only looks like the origin of the course without much consideration in determining which countries are eligible to get visa-free policy , and in this event we discussed in full about it “he said.
