Chinese Workers Denied Access to Covid-19 Vaccines in Indonesia

A number of Chinese workers who came to get Covid-19 vaccinations in the town of Rangkasbitung, Banten province, were rejected after they failed to show a national identity card issued in Indonesia.

Under Indonesian law, it is compulsory for all foreigners aged 17 and above to have an electronic national identity card (KTP) if they are issued with temporary residence permits.

Kompas.com reported that dozens of Chinese workers, gathered at the Lebak Police Clinic premises to get vaccinated.

Accompanied by an interpreter, they said that they came to the clinic to get Covid-19 jabs. The clinic staff then explained that they could not get the vaccine as they are required to show the KTP, not their passports.

However, they were determined to come because they were told that it is only the aforementioned clinic could provide vaccines for foreign workers.

A spokesperson for the Lebak Covid-19 Task Force Dr. Firman Rahmatullah said everyone is required to show a KTP before they get vaccinated.. "If you don't have KTP, your citizenship identification numbers [NIK] cannot be recorded [into the system]," Dr. Firman said.
