The Indonesian government updated health protocols and entry requirements for foreign nationals traveling to the country.

Key Points:

  • To be enter the country, foreign nationals must:
    • Show physical or digital proof that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for at least 14 days before departure for the country.
    • Have proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure for the country.
    • Quarantine for five days at a government-designated facility.
    • Register their health and travel information on the PeduliLindugi application.
  • Those who hold diplomatic visas, are under the age of 18, or have special health conditions are exempt from the vaccination requirements.

Additional Information: Indonesia recently lifted an entry ban that prohibited entry to foreign nationals who had been in India within 14 days of arrival. Those traveling from India will now be permitted to enter provided they meet other entry criteria. Indian passport holders who are planning to fly directly from India should confirm with their airlines whether they must transit through a third country.
