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.

Located between the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the Indonesian Seas are the place of immense water exchange. The water exchange is known as the Indonesian Throughflow and flows from the Pacific through to the lower Indian Ocean. This flow delivers eggs and larvae to the reefs of Indonesia and travels over the complex under water topography creating great upwellings of nutrient rich cold water. A veritable life source, and after a holiday in these waters you will go home with a renewed sense of life yourself.
We are happy to organise transfers to and from the airport, ferry and resort. Getting to Raja Ampat is worth the adventure and you will need to fly to Sorong Airport and take the 2-hour ferry from Sorong to Waisai.
