The following is an extract from an update issued on 18 July 2022 from the National COVID-19 Task Force Circular Note No. 22/2022.
In order to monitor, control and evaluate for preventing an increase in the transmission of COVID-19 including the new and future variants of SARS-Cov-2, the Government of Indonesia has implemented a policy to enter Indonesia.

The PeduliLindungi app
Important text in the information above states that for foreign nationals data verification will be done by their respective embassies. The ministry will then grant approvals after data verification has been completed. After the registrants have received the data verification from the ministry via e-mail, they will have to download and install the PeduliLindungi app on their mobile phone and complete the required steps (see complete information in this link: https://www.indonesia.travel/gb/en/trip-ideas/a-brief-guide-on-using-peduli-lindungi-mobile-app). THIS PROCESS MAY TAKE UP TO 10 DAYS TO PROCESS!
Domestic Airline Travel Within The Republic of Indonesia
In addition to the two-doses of Pfizer or Moderna or Sinovac, AstraZeneca and Sinopharm and single-dose of Johnson & Johnson to enter Indonesia, all domestic air travellers are also required to have received a COVID-19 booster (third dose). This, of course, applies to participants on the post-AGA tour. For further information it is suggested to refer to: https://www.smartraveller.gov.au/destinations/asia/indonesia.
On domestic flights within Indonesia the baggage allowance is 20 kg which should be especially noted by participants on the post-AGA tour.
As advised in Membership Message 6/2022, the current website is driven by out-of-date technology and steps were to be taken by our IATA contacts to migrate the website to a newer platform within IATA. I am now delighted to announce that confirmation has been received that the migration has begun from the current website to the new platform. If everything goes according to plan, we will be able to view the new website during our time in Bali at the AGA.
Yours in interlining,
