As of January 1, 2021, the Indonesian government announced the temporary closure of entrances for all foreign nationals (WNA) regarding the emergence of a new variant of the virus that causes COVID-19, which is said to be transmitted faster.
This rule is exempted for foreign state officials at the ministerial level and above, and must be accompanied by strict implementation of the COVID-19 prevention protocol.
Foreigners arriving in Indonesia today, until December 31, 2020, are still allowed to enter provided that the PCR test results are negative from their home country – which is valid for a maximum of 2×24 hours before departure time, as well as a repeat PCR test after arriving in Indonesia.
If proven negative in both PCR tests, the foreigner is asked to do a mandatory quarantine for five days, and after that he must return to undergo the PCR test.
Meanwhile, all Indonesian citizens (WNI) who wish to return from abroad are allowed to enter, provided that the PCR test is the same as above. [antaranews/photo special]
