Covid Restrictions for Indonesia

Covid Restrictions for Indonesia

Current rules for getting into and around Indonesia:

To get around Indonesia (domestic flights and boats), you need proof of vaccination with the following additional rules;

For domestic travel:
3 shots (or “boosted”) = no test required
2 shots = negative rapid antigen test
1 shot = pcr test a maximum of 72 hours prior to departure

You need to download the PeduliLindungi app and fulfill the requirements in the app.

We do our best to keep this up to date, but there will always be changes that are not reflected here. ie: we take no responsibility for the fact that this information may occasionally be out-of-date or erroneous.

Current info (updated 27 May, 2022):

INDONESIA ISSUES REGULATION 15. READ THE FULL REGULATIONS HERE.

INDONESIA ISSUES VISA ON ARRIVAL REGULATION. READ THE FULL REGULATIONS HERE.

LIST OF COUNTRIES ALLOWED IN. Here is the latest list of 60 countries allowed to enter Indonesia.

VACCINATION: All foreigners coming to Indonesia are required to show proof of vaccination. Whether you have 1, 2 or 2 + Booster vaccination status, this will affect your length of quarantine. Less shots = longer quarantine.

VISA ON ARRIVAL INDONESIA: Visa On Arrival Info: VOA is being issued to all travelers arriving at approved airports as of April 6th, 2022. Cost is Rp. 500,000 payable at the visa kiosk upon entry.

QUARANTINE INDONESIA: For foreigners fully vaccinated, there is no quarantine. It is no longer necessary to have a negative test prior to departure, nor an additional PCR test upon arrival into Indonesia, as of April 6th.

DOMESTIC TRAVEL: It is no longer necessary for domestic passengers within Indonesia on planes or boats to provide a negative PCR or antigen test as a prerequisite for travel.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: It is mandatory to have travel insurance for a trip to WavePark and also mandatory for entry to Indonesia. The medical portion of the coverage must include losses due to covid19 symptoms.

ELECTRONIC HEALTH ALERT CERTIFICATE (e-HAC): All international travelers are required to complete e-HAC before travel. Please download “PeduliLindungi” app in your Apple Store or Android Play to complete the e-HAC. You will get a unique barcode at the end of the process and will have to show it upon check-in and arrival.

If you are traveling with family, you are only required to create one account. For example, if a parent is traveling with his/her children, the parent is required to put his/her dependent information under his/her name.

GENERAL NOTES AND RECOMMENDATIONS:

We recommend to have a physical vaccine card easily available for your international travels, especially as you enter Indonesia.

We recommend your flight itinerary route through Jakarta as your international arrival airport. The airport has the code CGK. Coming through Jakarta will mean the best chance of avoiding disruption to domestic flights etc.

We recommend for domestic flights, only choosing Garuda Indonesia as your carrier. Don’t cut corners on this cost, it’s not worth the hassle of having disruptions with other airlines. Garuda is the most dependable in our experience.

We recommend booking your flights to give yourself at least 1 full day on either side of your trip for logistics challenges, flight cancellations, weather events etc. Don’t try and make everything “down to the wire.”

We recommend choosing travel insurance that has a “deposit protection” policy, so that if you can not join your trip to WavePark, that your non-refundable deposit can be claimed back.

If you’ve heard of a change in travel information for Indonesia, but don’t yet see it here, the industry sites and posts that we recommend you should keep bookmarked are:

IATA Travel Map powered by Timatic. Click on the country you’re interested in, and a list will appear of all the current restrictions in place. Note this information is “current”, and will not list “planned” or “pending” change in restrictions.

Director General Indonesian Immigration Instagram page: Believe it or not this is the best place to hear about the latest rules and regulations controlling immigration for foreigners coming into Indonesian. Most of the posts relevant to foreigners will be in Indonesian and English, but not all. They advertise “DM US!” so feel free to direct message them, but honestly, they’ve never answered any of my questions via DM.

The Jakarta Post: Is Indonesia’s premiere English language newspaper. Unfortunately a lot of their articles are “premium service”, but they are good about announcing and explaining current events and changes to law, and importantly what plans (if any) that the government has.

The Straits Times: is a Singapore-based publication that will also release stories about important changes in Indonesian travel regulations. It is all in English and not so much focused on “premium service required”.
