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.

WHY IS RAJA AMPAT SO IMPORTANT TO CONSERVE?

Raja Ampat is the literal crossroads for the Indian and Pacific
Ocean species. It has the highest concentration and diversity
of marine life on earth, as well as the greatest coral reef
biodiversity for its size in the world.

Powerful ocean currents carry larvae from Raja Ampat to reefs in other parts of Indonesia and the Pacific, making Raja Ampat the heart of the “supply chain” of species. This transport may help to replenish other reefs which have been damaged by disease, bleaching, overfishing, and other detrimental activities
