I've been trying to find some destinations that we can fly to without restrictions. Especially as I am looking for ways to visit the UK avoiding hotel quarantine. After searching dozens of countries in Europe I found one: Ireland! Indonesia was taken off the Irish designated country list in mid-August.
So now the following rules apply:

If you arrive into Ireland from a non-designated country outside the EU or EEA and you have valid proof of vaccination or proof that you have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 180 days, you do not need to do any travel-related testing or quarantine. [For Ireland the only valid vaccines are AZ, Pfizer, Moderna, J&J]. If you are not vaccinated with one of these you need to do self-quarantine for 5 days and tests.
But still it is much better than for any other European country.
So CGK-dubai/abudhabi/qatar-DUB would be a good flight to get.

Please share any other countries that are opening their doors to Indonesians.

I'm Irish so was delighted when they announced that - finally got my 2nd AZ shot last week so it looks positive for an Xmas trip home this year. I think it's worth pointing out that there are still restrictions for when you go to the UK from Ireland so you'd need to stay there for 10 days (check the UK restrictions!).
I was hoping to visit Spain during my time home to see some family but need to see if it's possible.

Yes, you'd still definitely need to stay in Ireland for 10 days before getting the ferry to Holyhead or a flight to a UK airport. On the other hand, I don't think they have a Covid checking station at Holyhead since there are no travel restrictions at all between the UK and Ireland, so it's more between you and your conscience to wait for 10 days.

I'm hopeful that Indonesia will come off the red list in UK during the next review which is today/tomorrow. Apparently they are evaluating the following countries: "Argentina, Bangladesh, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Kenya, Maldives, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Turkey."

They are also talking about scrapping amber for vaccinated travelers but there is still an issue whether our vaccines given in Indonesia would be accepted; even AstraZeneca. We may still have to quarantine because of this.
