The Indonesian central government has announced that quarantine for international visitors who have received vaccine boosters will be reduced to 3 days.
The Coordinator of Maritime and Investment Ministry, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, confirmed that the government plans to reduce the quarantine time for international entries who have received the Covid-19 vaccine booster.
“We will reduce quarantine time for international visitors and Indonesian citizens who have received vaccine booster by next week,” Luhut said on Monday (14/2).
All visitors should have a negative Covid-19 test prior to departure. They will also need to take another PCR test on the 3rd day of quarantine, with a negative result required for release.
Luhut also suggested that travelers take one more PCR test on the 5th day so they can keep health facilities updated about their latest health condition.However, he admitted that he plans on reducing the quarantine time for all international travelers, regardless of the vaccination status.
“If the situation keeps improving and the vaccination program runs properly, we might probably implement the same policy for all international visitors by March 1, regardless of their vaccination status. We may even revoke the centralized quarantine policy by April,” Luhut concluded.
He explained that the government has been trying to balance the country’s health and economy while keeping Covid-19 cases from surging.
