Indonesia has barred most foreign nationals from entering the country. The restrictions took effect today, April 2. Foreign nationals unable to leave Indonesia because of COVID-19 travel restrictions will receive an Emergency Stay Permit.

Key Points:

  • Foreign nationals are barred from entering Indonesia, with the exception of those holding Limited Stay Permits (E-ITAS) and Permanent Stay Permits (ITAP), diplomatic and official visas and permits, those working in medical, supply, or humanitarian support, those working on strategic projects and transport crew members.
  • Foreign nationals holding Visitor Stay Permits, Limited Stay Permits or Permanent Stay Permits that have expired and/or are non-extendable will automatically receive an Emergency Stay Permit free of charge without having to file a request with the immigration office.

Additional information: Foreign nationals exempt from the entry ban must present a health certificate in English from their local health authority, have resided in a region or country declared free of COVID-19 for the past 14 days and undergo 14 days of government-supervised quarantine on arrival.
