Hanoi (VNA) - Indonesia has waived visa requirements for nationals from 79 other countries, expanding the list to 169 visa-free nations as it continues to boost foreign arrivals.

Under a decree signed by President Joko Widodo in early March, tourists who wish to travel in the country for 30 days will enjoy visa-free entry.

The Ministry of Legal and Human Rights authorised the move on March 10.

Last year, the Indonesian government expanded the list to 90 from 15 visa-free countries.

The government has set a target to attract 20 million foreign tourists annually by 2019 in an effort to boost growth in Southeast Asia 's largest economy. Last year alone, 9.73 million tourists visited the country.-VNA
