During a virtual press conference, the Maritime and Investment Ministry coordinator, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, confirmed that the central government has decided to reduce the quarantine time for incoming international arrivals. This applies to both international visitors and Indonesian citizens who wish to gain access to the country.

However, this revised policy is only intended for travelers who have had their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccination.

“The current entry restrictions have successfully restrained the entry of Omicron in Indonesia. Hence, the government has decided to reduce the quarantine time only for Indonesian citizens and foreign visitors who have been fully vaccinated,” Luhut said on Monday (31/1).

Luhut also explained that travelers who have only completed the first dose of Covid vaccination are still required to undergo the 7-day quarantine at an appointed facility.

“According to our research, the incubation period of Omicron is 3 days on average, so those who have only received their first dose are required to undergo a 7-day quarantine,” Luhut added.

This policy was initiated to reallocate the government’s resources. The budget formerly directed towards the quarantine facilities can be allotted towards the isolation facilities in anticipation of an increase in asymptomatic Covid-19 patients.

Guess I'm going to have to brush up on my Tagalog and Thai. Maybe even learn Khmer. Selamat tinggal Indonesia. Mungkin bertemu lagi...mungking tidak.

Forget it. Fully vaccinated and boosted, negative test right before flying. Rapid test on arrival and let the traveler be free to go. Never coming until there’s zero quarantine requirement. It’s like “here, come to Bali, but first spend 5 days in a comfy jail at your expense!”.

@Sanjeev, well many Airlines are asking Biden to rescind the pre - travel covid test into the US. Right now it's a 1x24 prerequisite covid to get into the US. Their reasoning behind it that a lab could probably actually catch the virus in relatively tight time frame. But if the result is not favorable that would mean US citizens could be stuck in a foreign country.

If you are unvaccinated then you do not fall into the allowable category of entry into Bali regardless of quarantine mandates.

This is rubbish. Nothing has changed. Despite removing the 18 countries. 5 days too much. Can they at least make tourist visa for free? Or we gotta pay another 400$ there!
