COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements
Fully vaccinated international travelers do not need to undergo quarantine and can now enter Indonesia without a PCR test before and upon arrival. Fully vaccination means two doses or more; Johnson and Johnson is considered two doses.
Those exempted from vaccination due to comorbidity must show a medical statement in English stating that they cannot be vaccinated; otherwise, they can’t enter Indonesia.
Children (18 years old or younger) don’t need to be vaccinated to enter Indonesia; however, children traveling with their parents or legal guardians will follow the entry conditions that apply to their parents/guardians upon arrival. For example, if the parents had to quarantine, the children would follow their parents/guardians, even if they were fully vaccinated.
