Introduction to Quarantine in Jakarta
When you land in Jakarta, you must first quarantine before you are allowed to continue your journey to other cities in Indonesia.
Quarantine when you enter another country in this pandemic season has become an official government regulation to protect yourself and others from the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Quarantine rules and regulations in each country are different.
5 days and 4 nights / 3 days and 2 night Quarantine
If you have already received two doses of vaccines, you need to be quarantined for 5 days and 4 nights, and 3 days and 2 nights if you have received the third vaccine or booster.
Enter Indonesia with a B211A Business Visa
Enter Indonesia with a Tourist Visa
Book your Quarantine Hotel in Indonesia in advance

Strict Vaccination policy to enter Indonesia / Bali
If you haven’t received the vaccine yet, please register yourself to be vaccinated immediately, because the Indonesian Government doesn’t provide free vaccines for foreigners who hold a B211A Business Visa.
Free Vaccines can be given to foreigners who hold multiple entry Indonesian KITAS, such as Working KITAS, Investor KITAS, Family KITAS or Retirement KITAS.
PCR test results that are negative, but still valid for a maximum of 3 x 24 hours before your departure time, will still be required.
What should you prepare before you arrive?
You can download the PeduliLindungi app via Google Playstore or the Appstore. Just enter the keyword “PeduliLindungi”.
If you have a problem with E-HAC, you can fill it in at Jakarta Airport and ask for help from the officer in Jakarta Airport for filling E-HAC..
When you arrive at Soekarno Hatta International Airport, you can find the directions where the IMEI can be registered. The importance of registering the IMEI of your mobile phone is so that you can use a local telephone card while you are in Indonesia.
From the airport to your hotel
If you are going to book a quarantine hotel, make sure to inquire about this service.
Leave your passport at the reception
Your passport will be kept in safe at the reception of your hotel.
Please keep the receipt from your passport deposit to collect your passport upon check out from the hotel.
PCR Test during quarantine in Indonesia
We make sure the clearance letter and PCR results are issued on the next day before your check out time.
Please remember, even though you have received a second vaccine or even a booster in your country, you still have to do a PCR test, because on your way to Indonesia you are still at risk of being infected and transmitting it to other people who have not been vaccinated.
Sharing a hotel room during quarantine
For those who are traveling with a partner or friend, you can also quarantine in the same room, as long as you both fly on the same plane.
If you come on a different flight, you will have to quarantine in separate rooms.
Meals during quarantine in Jakarta
But if you only have simple dietary restrictions, you can write down what foods you avoid to the hotel when you make a room reservation.
Ordering food from outside the hotel using the Gofood or Grab Food application is strictly not allowed during the quarantine period. If you want to order food outside the quarantine package, you can order it from room service.
Likewise, if you need a microwave, please note that not all of hotels provide it in every room. You can ask the room service at the hotel for help if you need a microwave to heat your food.
Almost all hotels in the Budget category provide free Wi-Fi with speeds of 2 – 5 Mbps per room. If you need a faster Wi-Fi, we recommend that you book a 5 star hotel from our partner hotels, because on average they provide Wi-Fi with a speed of 10 – 25 Mbps for each room.
Police guard during quarantine
Police/guard officers will be on guard 24 hours on each floors of the hotel that are not equipped with CCTV, while hotels with CCTV will be monitored from security rooms.
We strongly recommend that you comply with the quarantine regulations that have been set by the hotel because if caught by the officers, the hotel where you are staying in will be removed from the list of quarantine hotels approved by the Government.
Quarantine period is over, you are free to go!
You also can use an online taxi such as GrabCar or GoCar. As for those who will remain in Jakarta, you are allowed to go to your residence using an online taxi or be picked up by your friends or family.
If your second PCR test result is positive, you will be immediately picked up by the nearest designated hospital ambulance and will be treated there at your own expense (according to the 3 statement letters that you have signed when applying for a B211A Business Visa).
Meanwhile, for Indonesian students abroad who are undergoing quarantine due to returning to Indonesia, if the results of the second PCR test are positive, they will be taken and treated to a designated hospital and the cost of treatment is borne by the Indonesian Government.
