This guide is for fully vaccinated travelers only !
May 18 2022 was a milestone date for international travelers who have been waiting to get to Indonesia. With the pre-departure PCR testing requirements dropped and the mask wearing mandate lifted for outdoor settings 2 of the biggest hurdles are now being removed.
The world of travel in the ' New Normal ' means dealing with on-line registration systems and apps which are all newly developed. There have been many reports of issues using these services so make sure you start this process as early as possible. It is advisable that you have a printed copy of everything in case you can't access the on-line service, or the services never worked at all.
Update Aug 2022: The Indonesian Government officially announced that in order to encourage Indonesians to get a booster shot booster shots or recent COVID-19 test results will be required for domestic travel from 17th July 2022. How long these requirements will remain in place is uncertain. There are confirmed reports of people not being asked for proof of a COVID test, however our firsthand experience 31-07-22 is that many people are being asked to show proof before entry into airport terminals.

- Two doses and booster. No COVID-19 testing required prior to travel.
- Two doses. Rapid Antigen test 1 x 24hrs before travel or PCR test 3 x 24 hrs required prior to travel.
