JAKARTA, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Indonesian government has lifted the entry ban on international visitors with travel histories from 14 countries in the last two weeks to restore the country's economy, the COVID-19 Task Force said on Friday.

The task force's spokesperson Wiku Adisasmito said the ban was lifted as the Omicron variant of the coronavirus has spread to about 150 countries. If the ban remains, it will make cross-border movements difficult.

The 14 countries are South Africa, Botswana, Norway, France, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Eswatini, Lesotho, Britain and Denmark.

Like other international travelers, now visitors from those countries are only required to undergo a seven-day quarantine when entering Indonesia, Adisasmito added.
