The form cannot be filled out manually. Passengers can get their health declaration by downloading the eHAC Indonesia app on their phone, available for Android and iOS. Filling out the form just requires minutes and can be done on the go, prior or during departure.

Download Peduli Lindungi App

Please download the “Peduli Lindungi” app in your Apple Store or Android Play to complete the e-HAC before travel. You will get a unique barcode at the end of the process and will have to show it upon check-in and arrival. You should verify your vaccination here before you can register yourself in Peduli Lindungi App.

The steps to follow in the eHAC app for electronic validation include:

  • Open the app
  • Tap on Health Passport menu > List of Lab Test
  • The relevant test result will appear in green


  • Open the app
  • Tap on VaksinKu Menu > QR Code Certificate
  • Scan the barcode

Those who do not have COVID-19 negative test results on the app will have to carry out manual validation.

If you are traveling with family, you are only required to create one account. For example, if a parent is travelling with his/her children, the parent is required to put his/her children information to the e-HAC under his/her name.
