Jakarta, IO – Starting Monday (1/8), the visitor quota and conservation fee for visit to Komodo Island, Padar Island and the surrounding waters will officially take effect.

To limit the number of tourists, payment of conservation fees will be made through a one-stop online registration application called INISA.

Tourists will have to pay Rp15 million per a group of four people to compensate for the environmental impact as a result of the visit. For visitors who cannot come in four, the contribution fee can be paid by individuals through a tour package offered by tour operators.

“For those who don’t travel in a group of four, they can register through a travel agent,” said the park coordinator Carolina Noge, as reported by Kompas, Saturday (30/7).

This is how a visitor can make a reservation for Komodo Island tours through INISA.
