Foreigners are required to pay for all accommodation, testing, and treatment costs, while the costs for most returning Indonesians will be covered by the government.

Indonesian government has decided to not issue visas to any foreigners who have been in India in the past 14 days to prevent COVID-19 transmission. Indonesians entering from India will be allowed to enter the country but will have to follow stricter protocols and quarantine rules.
 

Lockdown Details

Large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in Jakarta are being eased in a number of stages. Essential services are available, but public activities (including schools, offices, religious activities, social and cultural gatherings and public transportation) continue to be limited to maintain social distancing. It is mandatory to wear a face mask when outside. Criminal sanctions may apply for violations of the restrictions. Similar restrictions apply in some other areas in Indonesia.

Previous restrictions are gradually being eased and shops, bars and restaurants are resuming business, operating at 50% of their normal capacity and with social distancing of 1 metre. Restrictions remain on large public gatherings.

Accommodation, including hotels and private rental options, continue to be open for business across Indonesia. Social distancing measures are being applied in hotels.
