Guidelines for PCR Swab Test/Health procedures upon arrival:
For those arriving in Indonesia from 6th April 2022 there is no longer an on-arrival PCR swab test at the airport, provided you are fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to departure. Once you clear immigration and pick up your bags at the airport, you are free to proceed with your trip, including travelling elsewhere in Indonesia if you wish.
Unvaccinated travellers will still face a mandatory five day quarantine period.
Arrival PCR for those with a temperature
Upon arrival, overseas travellers are still required to go through a health screening process by checking body temperature. Anyone with temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius will immediately be taken for a PCR test by officers, whereas those below this body temperature won’t be asked to take a COVID-19 test of any sort.
The cost of that PCR test will be borne by travellers (S$26), or covered by the government if you are an Indonesian national.
In case you have to take PCR test upon arrival, you must proceed directly to your accommodation and await the results of your on-arrival test. If the test is negative, you can then proceed with your trip, though it is recommended to carry out independent health monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms for a further 14 days.
Previously infected travellers
If you have had a confirmed positive COVID-19 test taken a maximum of 30 days before departure to Indonesia, but have recovered from the virus, you are now exempt from the pre-departure PCR test requirement. However, in this case you must complete an on-arrival PCR test and carry a doctor’s certificate or COVID-19 recovery certificate from your country of departure, stating that you are no longer actively transmitting COVID-19.
