Indonesia (travel restrictions, COVID tests and quarantine requirements)

Updated March 8, 2021.

Detailed tourist information

All foreigners are prohibited from entering Indonesia with very limited exceptions, including holders of such valid documents:

  • Work Visa
  • Diplomatic visa
  • Visit a visa
  • Visa with limited stay
  • Permit to stay at work
  • Permit for diplomatic stay
  • Permit for limited stay
  • Permanent residence permit

All foreigners and citizens of Indonesia must get a negative PCR test for coronavirus (COVID-19). The test must be completed a maximum of 72 hours prior to departure from the first pick-up point. Help must be in English.

A five-day quarantine is required upon arrival at a specific hotel before taking another PCR test. If the test is negative, they will be advised to self-isolate for 14 days before any social activity. If the test results are positive, they will be referred to a hospital for treatment.

Foreigners must pay all living, testing and treatment costs, while the government covers the costs of most Indonesians returning.

Details of the quarantine in Indonesia

Large-scale social constraints in Jakarta are eased in several stages. Basic services are available, but community activities (including schools, offices, religious events, social and cultural gatherings, and public transportation) continue to be restricted to maintain social distancing. Wearing a face mask outdoors is a must. Violation of restrictions may be subject to criminal sanctions. Similar restrictions apply in some other areas of Indonesia.

Previous restrictions are gradually being eased and shops, bars and restaurants are resuming operations operating at 50% of their normal capacity and with a social distance of 1 meter. Restrictions remain for large public gatherings.

Accommodation, including hotels and private rental options, continues to be open to business throughout Indonesia. Social distancing measures are applied in hotels.
