However, the immigration authority has denied entry to 43 foreigners as they could not provide a clear purpose of the visit and some were banned from entering the country.  

Currently, the government is still imposing a ban on foreigners entering Indonesian territory to prevent a spike in the Covid-19 cases after new variants of concerns were found in the country.

This prohibition refers to the Regulation of the Minister of Law and Human Rights No.26/2020 on visas and residence permits. This rule excludes the entry of foreigners for essential purposes such as working on national strategic projects, family unions and humanitarian reasons.

However, starting from July 6, all international travelers are required to carry out RT-PCR retests and to undergo quarantine for eight days upon their arrival.

All international travelers must comply with the requirements related to the Covid-19 vaccination. Indonesian citizens and foreigners are required to show a complete dose of the Covid-19 vaccine certificate, both physical and digital upon arrival in Indonesia.
