Every arrival even vaccinated must strictly quarantine for minimum 5 days in a hotel

Not sure yet on the official release about which ones are / will be 14.

But since new variants are starting and Jakarta figures getting worse I expect it to be soon

But at the moment I think still "only" 5 days for everyone. Regardless of vaccinated or not.
Airport to hotel. 5 days strict.

My wife arrived early morning (after midnight) the 22nd of June, transported directly to the hotel (Swissotel Ibis, 6.5 juta for the duration, 3x meals daily, plus PCR test, and from what I saw by Wasapp at least an nice as any room I've stayed in Jakarta), tested again on the 26th, released from quarantine morning of the 27th. So yes, five days and yes, she had to pay (WNI). Reports of widespread Covid at the government subsidized wisma, which are mostly used by TKI.

My apologies if this has been answered, but I did read something that sounded like I'll need some health papers or god knows what from the "health authority" in the USA...whatever that is.

I recently booked a flight but I'm struggling a bit with what's needed to return to Indonesia. I'm WNA on KITAP and my daughter is WNI/WNA.

Will I need to get anything other than negative PCR results prior to departing the USA?

  • The Government of Indonesia also requires all foreign travelers, age 12 years or older, to have a COVID-19 vaccination certificate confirming that they were fully vaccinated.
  • Passengers are subject to COVID-19 PCR test upon arrival and quarantine for 8 or 14 days.
Exemptions
  • Proof of vaccination is not required for passengers with a diplomatic or service visa or stay permit.

That's not mandatory.

Yes it is. All arrivals must have at least one shot vaccine

Are you saying this has now been cancelled since this week or that it was something you were unaware of?

It's mandatory. I had a friend fly in from Boston last week. Indonesian. She had to show proof of her vaccination. And then also quarantine 8 days in Pullman hotel. She got out yesterday.

She flew Qatar. Also not sure now what's the rule with transit there? Better check.

There's some exceptions to what you're saying.

You do not need a vaccination if you've got a medical condition with a doctors note or if you are underage for the vaccination.

I'm already vaccinated with CovidVac but do plan on getting another jab in the USA. Kiddo is underage for that but old enough to be tested for covid.

So yeah, im just a bit unaware of the restrictions at the moment and trying to figure it out. Lots of info available in Indonesian which i'm not super fluent in and Mbah Google struggles with it sometimes. US Embassy has some info in good English https://id.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/covid-19-information/

Thanks for the info though, i appreciate it.

You will need to download on your phone and fill-in your details for the Indonesia Health Alert Card.

Please let us know your experience for your quarantine.


This is the same thing, but in browser form and easier than the ehac app.

I suggest look on JAL or Korean Air's web sites as they are also updated with what is required to enter countries.

Ideally, this is true. However, airline employees have been known to "make up their own rules" (and yes, this even happens in western countries). As much as I dislike saying it, the safest route is to take the most onerous, most restrictive rules, and make sure you comply with those rules. You might overspend - for example, taking a PCR test when an antigen test would suffice, but you will most likely get to your destination. And for Pete's sake, get vaccinated as soon as you can! Now is not the time for debating vaxx vs. anti-vaxx; when this many people are dying, it is not the time to get into esoteric nonsense.

Yes common sense prevails. But still (bites tongue hard)
Yes take the tests as near as possible to departure
Check and double check with airline and immigration about transit / stopover / vaccinations etc

Check with hotel about Windows and ability to order outside food etc etc

Bring every bit of paper and certificates and colour copies and heck even print out a summary in bahasa Indonesian of who you are, what your plans are, what visa you have, where you live etc.
Then in case of problems you can just thrust a piece of A4 at them which they can understand and easily take to show another manager etc etc

All simple things really. Over the top. Sure. But better safe than sorry.

I ended up asking my doctor to write a brief letter explaining that I was fully vaccinated and, in his opinion, sufficiently healthy for international travel and not a contagion risk, which he kindly did. I figured that along with my vaccination record for Covid (card) would be sufficient to meet the requirement. Unfortunately for other reason, I did not get a visa approved in time to go with my wife. ** I may have been barking up the wrong tree with the doctor's letter, I didn't know there was an official form.
