Indonesia does away with PCR tests and eases mask-wearing rule.
Indonesia has removed pre-flight PCR or ART tests for inbound International and Domestic travelers, including returning Indonesians. Masks are no longer required for vaccinated people in non-crowded outdoor spaces. Arriving travelers will only need to undergo a health check at the airport for any Covid-19-related symptoms.
The Circular Letter issued by Indonesia Covid-19 Task Force on May 18 stipulated that travelers must comply with the new health protocol: download the PeduliLindungi tracing app, show proof of their second Covid-19 vaccination obtained at least 14 days prior to departure, and have insurance covering Covid-19 medication and evacuation to referral hospitals.
For international arrivals to Indonesia:
The main change is that the remaining PCR test prior to arrival has been removed for fully vaccinated travelers.
The latest procedure and requirements for entering Indonesia are:
This policy is eligible for entry through the international airports of Jakarta, Surabaya, Bali, Batam, Bintan, Manado, Lombok, Medan, Makassar, Yogyakarta, Banda Aceh, Padang, Palembang, Solo, Banjarmasin and Balikpapan, and all international seaports.
The cost of a Visa on Arrival (VOA): IDR 500,000 (approx. 38 USD) and can be paid on a credit or debit card. Cash is accepted in EUR, GBP, AUD, USD, SGD, and IDR.
We are proud to be an eco-conscious resort and consider the environmental and socio-economical effect of every aspect of our operation. We believe that we have a duty to change how people view the ocean and the communities that surround it.
We’re changing the dive industry by letting every guest understand how we see the impact of humankind’s activities, no matter where we live, without any compromise on the quality of our equipment, our service to you and experience at our resort as a whole.
We genuinely believe in ONE PLANET, ONE OCEAN, ONE COMMUNITY.
Meridian Adventure is an environmentally conscious organisation that aims to minimise the negative environmental impact. One of our policies is to reduce the use of plastics, and for this reason, we do not use plastic water bottles. All of the resources consumed and the pollution created as a result of the production process, we feel that bottled water is disproportionate with its benefits.
We have installed Vulcan and Reverse Osmosis drinking water systems within the resort, so all the water in the service facility is potable. By refilling the water dispensers onsite and your water bottles with fresh water, we are making a small but positive contribution towards reducing the negative impact on our environment, the creatures in it, as well as our bodies.
Our customised dive boats revolutionise the functionality and comfort of dive boat operations, changing the way you’ll want to dive forever. Space, comfort and extended range capabilities make this ideal for multi-purpose use. We store our fuel in two tanks below the self-draining, non-slip deck with a maximum capacity of 656 litres. The hull features include an aluminium keel protection and two towing points.
Our pontoons were constructed from Military Grade 1670Dtex Hypalon, with three heavy-duty shark fin rubbing strakes and a full-length grab line. The tubes have internally taped seams with seven inflation valves, seven over pressure release valves and anchor rope bow protection. The 600mm diameter tubes make these pontoons exceptionally comfortable to ride on to and from dive sites.
Our facility offers a fusion restaurant. The menu is designed with international flair, embracing food in its natural form, allowing for clean, uncomplicated flavours. Using fresh produce, we inject passion and character into each meal – from the vibrant breakfasts to refreshing lunches, sunset canapés and dinners.
Our menus reflect our social consciousness in so far as we compliment the Waisai culinary possibilities by not competing with local restaurants.
We’ve explored everywhere you’d be going, tried, tested and tailored our itineraries that we’ll deliver the most unforgettable and valuable experiences and activities. We reveal the incredible, amazing and unbelievable in every location. Our operation strives to focus on the three essential components of dive holidays.
High-tech, ultra-reliable, equipment and transport to and from dive sites. The perfect dive site every time in consideration to tidal streams and environmental conditions.

“We are dedicated to delivering amazing scuba diving experiences on behalf of our associated dive partners worldwide.”
Our commitment towards the support for the local community is to deliver a pipeline of sustainable tourism. In Raja Ampat, we aim to help the communities to obtain a revenue stream that allows them to become custodians of our region’s wild heritage. We’re deeply entrenched at making a positive contribution towards our ocean waters and marine ecosystems worldwide. As part of our conservation initiative, we’ve avoided the use of single-use plastics so we can promote sustainable fishing and grow our produce to eliminate unnecessary packing materials. Furthermore, we’re committed to our regular beach and mangrove clean-ups to set the example for the overall community. We’re still profoundly awed by the underwater beauty that Raja Ampat is famous for, and we always hope that our guests go home convinced that lifestyle choices can make a meaningful impact in the long-term health of our oceans.
