TRIBUNBATAM.id - Starting on Friday (12/3/2021), Indonesian citizens and foreign nationals (WNA) arriving in Indonesia from international travel are required to quarantine for 10x24 hours or 10 days. 

The regulation is based on the Addendum to the Circular Letter (SE) of the Covid-19 Handling Task Force Number 23 of 2021 concerning International Travel Health Protocols during the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) Pandemic. 

The addendum contains changes from the SE Covid-19 Handling Task Force Number 23 of 2021 which was published on Monday (11/29/2021).

The addendum signed on December 2, 2021 is a follow-up to the development of the new variant of the Corona virus B.1.1.529 or the Omicron variant in a number of countries. 

In addition to the 10x24 hour quarantine, here are other rules for international travelers regulated by the SE Addendum for Handling Covid-19 Number 23 of 2021: 

1. Foreigners and Indonesian citizens are required to re-test RT-PCR upon arrival.

3. Foreigners and Indonesian citizens are required to carry out the RT-PCR test again on the 9th day for those who are required to undergo quarantine for 10x24 hours.

4. For international travelers who are quarantined for 14x24 hours, they are required to do the RT-PCR test again on the 13th day.  

For information, according to the SE Task Force for Handling Covid-19 Number 23 of 2021, Indonesian citizens who have a history of travel to 11 countries that are prohibited to entering Indonesia must undergo quarantine for 14 x 24 hours.

The 11 countries in question are South Africa, Botswana, Hong Kong, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Eswatini and Lesotho.
