Indonesia Authorities announce plans to open more airports for international travellers to enter the country – but be careful, successful implementation is not rolled out just yet.
This announcement is extremely well received, particularly in Bali, where dwindling tourism numbers have massively effected the islands economy.
In an official decree from the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Number M. HH-02.GR.02.02 Year 2021, the Indonesian Authorities announced that effective immediately, international flights may enter Indonesia territories to the following ports of entry:
- Soekarno Hatta – Jakarta
- Kualanamu – Medan
- Halim Perdana Kasuma – Jakarta
- Yogyakarta – Yogyakarta
- Sam Ratulangi – Manado
- Juanda – Surabaya
- Hang Nadim – Batam
- Ngu Rah Rai – Bali
Quarantine upon arrival is still mandatory for 8 days 7 nights, with the inclusion of 2 PCR tests.
The PDF below is a copy of the official decree. We only have an Indonesian version at the time of writing:
Please note, we cannot guarantee how long it will take for international flights to be operational. It may take a while for the Indonesian authorities to implement changes.
On the 18th September, Indonesian Immigration Authorities announced via their official Twitter account the same thing, however, with the omission of Yogyakarta. It is fair to say, this process isn’t going to be a smooth, when official bodies cannot agree on the same basic principles.
UPDATE – As of 20th September, it seems none of these airports have opened with the exceptions of Jakarta and Manado, we would suggest for now to only book flights to Jakarta until more concrete information is released and to avoid potential headache.
As of now, we are still awaiting the official list of quarantine hotels, but shall update this thread when they are available. We are aware there is a list for Bali quarantine hotels in circulation dated from July, however, we do not know whether this list is still accurate or valid – so we will wait for an update on this before sharing.
