A semi-structured interview approach to key informants. The results show that the implementation and development of halal tourism on the island of Lombok is still in its early stages. Indonesia has an organization that guides Islamic economic and financial law for halal tourism fatwas and halal certification. The local government and Indonesian clerical organizations have worked together to achieve halal tourism in Lombok.
