Covid-19 - Indonesia extends border closure for foreigners

Covid-19 IndonesiaIndonesia still closes its border due to the COVID-19/Corona Virus pandemic. Foreigners are not allowed to enter Indonesia except they are KITAS or KITAP visa holders or apply for a B211 business visa in advance. Indonesian citizens and top foreign officials are excluded from this arrival ban. It seems that the border closure will continue to be extended on a bi-weekly basis depending on the Corona situation in the country. Travelers arriving at Jakarta airport have to undergo a five-day quarantine in selected hotels of their choice and have to make twice a PCR test.

Beside the Indonesia border closure there are some new restrictions on public activities in Bali and Java and in the worst COVID-19 affected cities:

- Everybody has to wear a mask 
- Clubs, Discotheques, restaurants and malls have to close at 10 pm
- No private parties are allowed to protect from COVID-19
- No public bigger events are allowed in Indonesia
- No big gatherings. COVID-19 could be spread
- Indonesian Universities and schools are closed
- Travelers who travel by planes, ferries or boats within Indonesia need a negative PCR or COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test not older than 1 x 24 to 3 x 24 hours (depending on the regions and type of transportation)
- workers are advised to work from home instead in the office
- in case foreigners get a positiv COVID-19 result, they have to go into quarantaine for 14 days on their own expanses. 

When Indonesia bordure closure and registrictions will be lifted depends on the amount of COVID-19 infected people.
