Indonesia lifts COVID-19 test requirement for vaccinated inbound travellers

CNA – Indonesian President Joko Widodo announced yesterday that the country will no longer require vaccinated travellers from overseas to present a negative COVID-19 test upon entering the country.

“Fully-vaccinated domestic and international travellers no longer need to take PCR or antigen swab tests,” he announced on the presidential palace’s YouTube channel.

Indonesia lifted the test requirement for fully vaccinated domestic travellers in March but currently still requires those arriving from overseas to take a pre-departure COVID-19 test.

The president said the Indonesian government is also loosening its policy for mask wearing.

“If people are conducting activities in outdoor spaces which are not crowded, they are allowed to not wear masks. However, for indoor activities and on public transportation, (people) must still wear masks,” he said.
