Domestic and International Travelers No Need a Covid-19 Test when Traveling by Plane 

TRIBUNBATAM.id - The government has officially revoked the Covid-19 test requirements for domestic and international travelers starting today, Wednesday (5/18).

As a condition, travelers must have been vaccinated with the full dose, or a second dose.

"For domestic and foreign travelers who have received a complete dose of vaccination, there is no need to carry out a PCR swab test or an antigen," said President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) through the Presidential Secretariat's YouTube channel, Tuesday (5/17). 

Meanwhile, the spokesperson for the Covid-19 Task Force, Wiku Adisasmito, conveyed the same thing.

Prospective airplane passengers who have been vaccinated in full doses, he said, no longer need to be tested for Covid-19 before traveling.

Wiku explained that this decision was taken as the first step for the transition from a pandemic to an endemic period.

How many full doses of vaccine?

For information, reported by Kompas.com, previously, the RT-PCR or antigen test as a traveling requirement for domestic and foreign travelers only applies to those who have received a booster vaccine.

What is meant by full-dose vaccination is the second dose of vaccination.

"Complete dose means a vaccine with two complete doses. So what is meant by a complete dose is a two-dose vaccine. While what is meant by a booster is a vaccine after a complete dose of vaccine," explained Wiku.
