Indonesia revises entry policies once more


Indonesia has made further changes to her entry policies, this time by removing arrival quarantine throughout the country and allowing more nationalities to access the visa-on-arrival (VoA) facilities.

According to the Indonesia Covid-19 Task Force, travellers can skip quarantine by being fully vaccinated or by taking a booster jab 14 days before arrival, with their certificates verified by the country’s official Covid-19 digital contact tracing app, PeduliLindungi. They will also need to fill in an electronic health alert card (e-HAC).

Upon arrival, travellers have to show proof of a negative PCR test result obtained no more than 48 hours prior to departure to Bali, and take another test upon arrival. Travellers need to stay and wait for their test result in their accommodation before they are allowed to head out for any activities.

Travellers who have only taken the first dose of vaccine may still enter Indonesia but will need to undergo five days (120 hours) of quarantine and take a second PCR test on their fourth day of stay.

The Directorate General of Immigration, Ministry of Law and Human Rights has also increased the number of countries that can access the VoA to 42, from 23. The facility is currently available for entry via Bali airport and seaport.

The additional countries eligible for VoA are South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, India, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Seychelles, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, China, and Tunisia.

The requirements remain the same.
