Indonesia entry requirements 

Just like most of its Southeast Asian neighbors, Indonesia also requires incoming foreign travelers to comply with travel requirements and health protocols. Here’s all you need to present at the immigration:

    An installed PeduliLindungi app on your phone

    Filled out Indonesia e-HAC

    Proof of travel insurance worth USD25,000 with COVID-19 coverage

    Proof of hotel booking confirmation at your destination

    Physical or digital vaccination certificate showing complete dose of COVID-19 vaccine (children aged 0-18 are exempted from this requirement)

Unvaccinated travelers with special medical conditions can still visit Indonesia, however, they must provide a doctor’s certificate from the Port Health Office at the first point of departure. The certificate must include the reason why the traveling party can’t be vaccinated.  They must also present a negative RT-PCR test taken no earlier than 48 hours prior to departure.

Your vaccination certificate can be uploaded into the PeduliLindungi app. You can check out our Bali article for a step-by-step guide on how to register and use the app.

Final steps

Once you have your Free Visa or VoA, you’ll be subjected to a body temperature check. You may also be asked to take an additional RT-PCR test if found unfit. Make sure to book a test from an affiliate laboratory so that you can view your result on the PeduliLindungi app. You must stay in your chosen accommodation until you receive a negative result on your RT-PCR test.

However, if you test positive, you must take the following steps:

    If asymptomatic or experiencing mild symptoms, you must quarantine at a hotel or centralized isolation facility at your own expense

    If experiencing moderate to severe symptoms and/or with comorbidities, you must be admitted to a COVID-19 referral hospital at your own expense

    Regularly wash your hands with water and soap, or hand sanitizer

    Maintain a 1-5-meter social distance in public and avoid crows as much as possible
