Australia is looking to match Indonesia’s decision to scrap the $49 fee for Australian tourists who apply for a one-month visa, according to a report by ETB Travel News.

            Indonesia Scraps Visa Fees for 90 Nationalities

The US$35 on arrival visa fee for tourists from 90 countries has been scrapped. Australia will be one of 79 new countries to be granted free one-month tourist visas.  Nearly 10 million tourists visit Indonesia annually, with the majority visiting Bali. Of the 3.6 million visits to Bali between January and November 2015, Australians topped the list with 876,748 visitors.

The announcement adds to the 90 countries that already receive free visa access, and comes as part of Indonesia's plan to attract 20 million foreign tourists annually by 2019.

A spokesperson for Air Asia said the airline hopes the policy will result in more tourists travelling to Indonesia. It is also understood other major airlines such as Jetstar will welcome the move to reduce costs for Australian travellers.
