Covid 19 - Travel Restriction to Indonesia Updated on Nov 18, 2020 14:42 UTC+8

Travel Corridor Arrangement for Singaporean Nationals
From October 29, 2020, Singaporean nationals and lawful residents may be eligible to travel to Indonesia for business or official travel of up to 30 days using a so-called "Travel Corridor Arrangement" (TCA) scheme. Persons seeking to use the TCA must be sponsored by either an Indonesia-based company or an Indonesian government agency, which will file an application on their behalf for a specific e-visa. Once approved, e-visa holders must then submit their travel history and a detailed itinerary online via the “Electronic Health Card” (e-HAC) system, and must hold a valid return ticket.

Persons seeking to use the TCA must, at their own expense, obtain a certificate showing a negative result for COVID-19 issued no more than 72 hours prior to departure using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test performed by an approved medical services provider in Singapore. TCA travelers are limited to arrival via Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) or the Batam Center Ferry Terminal.

Upon arrival, TCA travelers will undergo an additional PCR test at their own expense and will be transported by the host company or government agency to a non-residential accommodation where they must self-isolate while awaiting their test results. Upon confirmation of a negative test result, the host company or government agency will ensure the traveler is transported to and from their workplace for the duration of the traveler's stay in Indonesia and refrains from using public transportation. The host company or government agency will further ensure the traveler properly registers with the e-HAC system and observes all local pandemic control measures.

All Others

Persons arriving from abroad are required to carry a health certificate showing a negative result for COVID-19 using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. The certificate must be issued by a recognized health authority no more than 7 days prior to departure for Indonesia. Failure to produce a valid certificate may result in denial of entry. Upon arrival, all persons are subject to additional testing for COVID-19 and will be directed to either self-isolate for 14 days or undergo quarantine at a designated facility.
