JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – All international arrivals are now required to undergo a 10-day quarantine compared to seven days previously after taking a PCR test for Covid-19 at their entry point in Indonesia due to Omicron variant worries.

The new measure was issued on December 2 by the Covid-19 National Task Force following an addendum to circular No. 23/2021 on health protocols for international travel during the Covid-19 pandemic period.

The measure also aims to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including the new Omicron variant found in several countries.
