COVID-19 UPDATES

Latest Procedures & Requirements

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:

  • Depending on the nationality, visitors must present a B211A visa approval letter or request a VOA (Visa-on-Arrival). The list of 72 countries eligible for VOA remains unchanged (updated 30May’22)

 

  • Physical or digital evidence in English that shows the visitor is fully vaccinated at least 14 days before departure (no booster necessary)

 

  • Children under 18 years are exempted from this rule

 

  • Download the PeduliLindung application and complete travel details.

 

  • Proof of ownership of health insurance covering COVID-19. No minimum coverage is mentioned in the latest regulation but we recommend a minimum coverage of US$ 25,000 (or equivalent in other currencies)

 

  • Upon arrival, no PCR testing or quarantine is necessary if the body temperature is below 37.5 degrees Celsius.
    A PCR Test and 5 days of quarantine are ONLY necessary if the temperature of the visitor is above 37.5 degrees Celsius.

 

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.

HAVE WE MENTIONED WE HAD A PHOTOSHOOT?

Geez, where are our manners – we haven’t even told you
about our brand photoshoot we had at the resort in May.
We invited a few models and social media influencers from
Australia and Bali to join us for a 5-day adventure in and
around the resort, alongside some likeminded brands.



HERE’S A QUICK BEHIND-THE-SCENES SCOOP



DAY 0

The photographers arrive
and we hit the ground
running immediately!
We scouted locations for the
next day and used the time
to get waterfall and various
resort shots out of the way.

DAY 0
DAY 01

DAY 01

The models arrive and even
after travelling very far, we
still managed to get the local
market and yoga shots we
needed.
They were pumped being at
the resort after all the flights…
‘Air-con’ was mentioned quite
a few times ;)



DAY 02

With free WIFI access at the
resort, we saw a lot of content
coming from everyone.
We managed to get early
morning to evening
shots at the resort.

DAY 02
DAY 03

DAY 03

With an early start, we visited
Friwen Island for some beach,
coconut, snorkeling, paddle
board and jetty (to name a few).
It was hot… very.



DAY 04

The earliest start yet, we
visited Alice in Wonderland for
paddle boarding, the secret
sand bank during low tide and
managed to get even more
speed boat and underwater
photos.
Although we went through two
cloud breaks, we still ticked off
all the boxes for the day.

DAY 04
DAY 05

DAY 05

Hiking to the top of Piaynemo,
and getting those scuba dive
angles in, ensured a great end
to a busy week of shooting.



DAY 06

Models and photographers are
swiftly checked-out, fed (vegan
and pro-fruit cuisine) and on their
way back home. It was a sad day
saying good bye to the kittens…
