Authorities have eased domestic COVID-19 curbs under the public activity restrictions system (PPKM) in Greater Jakarta back to the least stringent Level 1 protocols July 6-Aug. 1. Officials had earlier announced, July 5, that the rules in Greater Jakarta would be retightened to the stricter Level 2 measures. PPKM tiers run from Level 1 through Level 4 in increasing order of severity.
Domestic Measures
Level 2 curbs of the PPKM are in effect through Aug. 1 in Sorong Regency, West Papua Province. All other localities nationwide are under Level 1 protocols. Most businesses and activities under levels 1 and 2 may operate at a maximum of 100 percent and 75 percent, respectively. Businesses and facilities defined as operating in critical sectors can work on-site at full capacity under all tiers.
Local jurisdictions may implement tighter restrictions on top of the measures mandated by the central government if the rate of transmission warrants.
Other nationwide measures continue. Facemask use is mandatory in indoor venues and on public transport vehicles, but not in outdoor areas. Unvaccinated people on long-distance domestic air, sea, and land travel must provide a negative result from a PCR test taken within 72 hours or a RAT test taken within 24 hours before departure. Officials advise all passengers to download the PeduliLindungi contact tracing application.
International Travel Restrictions
The government currently allows citizens, permanent residents, foreigners on high-level diplomatic state visits, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Travel cardholders, and tourists from some international locations to enter Indonesia. Travelers who are not fully vaccinated must provide a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours before departure. Arriving foreign nationals must also present proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. Foreigners no longer have to present evidence of a health insurance plan covering COVID-19 treatment. Permitted entrants who are not fully vaccinated must quarantine at a designated facility for five days upon entry and undergo an RT-PCR test on the fourth day of isolation; fully vaccinated passengers do not need to quarantine. All permitted incoming travelers, regardless of nationality, must also download the PeduliLindungi contact-tracing app.
Authorities allow passport holders from 72 international locations, including Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea, the UK, the US, and ASEAN countries, to obtain a visa on arrival. Passengers may enter Indonesia by air through Jakarta, Batam, Denpasar, Makassar, Manado, Mataram, Medan, Surabaya, Tanjungpinang, and Yogyakarta; by sea through certain ports in Bali, North Kalimantan, and Riau Islands provinces; and by land through some checkpoints in East Nusa Tenggara, West Kalimantan, and Papua provinces. Additionally, officials permit people who are returning from the annual Hajj pilgrimage to enter Indonesia by air through Balikpapan, Banda Aceh, Banjarmasin, Padang, Palembang, and Surakarta through Aug. 15.
Follow all official instructions. Abide by national health and safety measures. Reconfirm all travel arrangements. Consider delaying traveling if experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, as they may prompt increased scrutiny and delays. Liaise with trusted contacts for further updates and guidance. Maintain contact with your diplomatic representation. Ensure contingency plans account for further disruptive measures or extensions of current restrictions.
