4. What is a temporary GREEN status?

Upon arrival in Indonesia, international travelers, both Indonesian citizens and foreigners who are eligible to enter Indonesia or those who have completed their quarantine period, will get a temporary GREENstatus for 30 days in the PeduliLindungi app

With that status, you can travel domestically in Indonesia for 30 days. However,you are still required to comply with health protocols and travel regulations that apply in the country, including filling out a domestic e-HAC in the PeduliLindungi application before traveling.

5. What if I plan to change my temporary green status to become permanent?

International travelers, both Indonesian citizens and foreigners, who wish to change their green status from temporary into permanent are required to submit non-Indonesian vaccine certificates (VNI) through PeduliLindungi App.

After the verification is approved, you will get permanent GREEN status and be eligible to travel domestically. However, you are still required to comply with health protocols and travel regulations that apply in the country including filling out a domestic eHAC in the PeduliLindungi application before traveling.

6. How does the inspection process take place upon arrival in Indonesia?

When you arrive at the Indonesian airport/port, you need to show your QR code profile at PeduliLindungi. Then,the officer will direct you to the health checkpoint to check document requirements and body temperature.

  • If you have no COVID-19 symptoms and body temperature is below 37.5 degrees Celsius, you are eligible to continue your trip with temporary green status for 30 days in the PeduliLindungi website or application.
  • If you show COVID-19 symptoms or have a body temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius, then you have to do RT-PCR test at the airport/port and wait for the result in the hotel.

You are not allowed to go outside the hotel and interact with other people while waiting for the RT-PCR test. 

If the test result is negative, you are allowed to travel domestically. However, if the test results are positive, you need to isolate in accordance with applicable regulations. International travelers under the age of 18 are also required to undergo isolation if their parents or caregivers/travel companions are tested positive for COVID-19.

The cost of the COVID-19 RT-PCR test for foreigners will be charged independently, while for Indonesian citizens covered by the government (free).
