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.

MERIDIAN ADVENTURE DIVE BOATS

Having customised dive boats revolutionise the functionality and comfort of our dive boat operations, changing the way you’ll want to dive forever. Having space, comfort, and the extended range capabilities make this ideal for multi-purpose use—fuel storage in two tanks below the self-draining, non-slip deck with a maximum capacity of 656 litres. The hull features include aluminium keel protection and two towing points.

The pontoons construction was designed and built 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.

Specifications

The vessels length overall is 10.6m with a beam of 3.25m. The internal beam of 1.95m and length from anchor well to motor well of 7.4m leaves ample room for movement and equipment stowage on board the boat. The maximum carrying capacity of the vessel is up to 22 persons or 3650kg.

The placement of the helm station forward in the vessel allows the driver an unobstructed view for navigation, as well ease of access to the bow for mooring and anchoring purposes without disturbing the passengers.

The fixed fore and aft aluminium roll bars feature sturdy fold-up swim ladders and a removable Sunbrella bimini provides shade that extends just outside the beam of the vessel. Removal of the bimini shade allows for the option of exchanging saddle seats with the dive cylinder racks, or removing both for cargo carrying purposes.
