You need to take international flight from your country to Jakarta - the capital of Indonesia or to Denpasar city - the most important tourist hub in this country. 

After that, you could continue your trip by taking domestic flight to Manokwari city. There are daily flights offered by such airlines as Sriwijaya Air, Batik Air and Lion Air between Manokwari and the above cities. 

From Manokwari city, you could go to Rasiei by a small turboprop aircraft operated by Susi Air or by passenger boats and ferry that serve this sea route almost every day.
