Key Points

  • Updated quarantine restrictions for international travelers  
  • New entry policy for foreign nationals from India  


On Oct. 13, 2021, the Indonesian government announced that it will change restrictions on quarantine requirements for international travelers and clarify point of entry information. Quarantine periods will: 

  • Be reduced from 8 days to 5 days for travelers from countries with low COVID-19 cases; 
  • Be increased from 8 to 14 days for travelers from countries with high COVID-19 cases 

The government also confirmed that international travelers will only be permitted to enter Indonesia through the Jakarta and Manado airports.  

The Indonesian government has lifted its restrictions on Indian nationals. Indian nationals will be eligible to enter Indonesia if they have been in India 14 days prior to travel to Indonesia. The quarantine period will be for 5 days because of India's low COVID-19 case rate.  

Looking Ahead

The government is expected to produce a list of high-risk countries in the coming weeks. Continue to check Envoy's website for further updates.
