Most visa waiver/exemption and visa on arrival arrangements are temporarily suspended until further notice.

Passengers arriving in Indonesia must present a completed Electronic Health Alert Card (E-HAC) to the immigration officers. Passengers may also install the E-HAC app on their smartphones through the Android Play Store or the Apple App Store. E-HAC filling can be done before travel, during the departure or during the arrival process before reaching the Port Health Authority (KKP) checkpoint.

Until 8 January 2021, international travelers arriving in Indonesia from one of the countries below must present a medical certificate (in English) showing a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to departure to Indonesia:

  • Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden or Switzerland

International travelers coming to Indonesia from countries other than those listed above must present a medical certificate (in English) showing a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to departure to Indonesia.

Government officials at the port of entry will validate the pre-departure PCR test and then issue a clearance letter that will allow the passengers to complete the mandatory 14-day quarantine period at their home/accommodation in Indonesia.

If an on-arrival COVID-19 test comes back positive, then passengers will be referred to a local hospital to undergo a COVID-19 RT-PCR test and quarantine.

2. Quarantine/Self-Isolation Requirements

All travelers who are permitted to enter Indonesia must agree to serve a mandatory 14-day quarantine period, subject to the testing protocol outlined above.
