COVID-19 Task Force Rules

The COVID-19 Handling Task Force issued COVID-19 Task Force circular no. 25/2021 concerning the international travel health protocol during the COVID-19 pandemic which regulates quarantine obligations for Indonesian citizens and foreigners from abroad.

This provision replaces circular letter no. 23/2021 which requires every international traveler to carry out an RT-PCR test upon arrival, a 10-day quarantine, and a second RT-PCR retest on the ninth day of quarantine.

Indonesian citizens arriving from 11 countries where there is community transmission of the Omicron variant are required to undergo a 14-day quarantine.

Exceptions to quarantine obligations only apply to foreigners with the criteria for diplomatic and service visa holders, foreign officials and entourages making state visits, delegates from G-20 member countries, TCA schemes, and honorable or prominent people.

“Exemptions from the quarantine obligation of Indonesian citizens are under urgent circumstances, such as having a health condition that threatens life and requires special attention, as well as conditions of mourning such as a nuclear family member dying,” said the National Spokesperson for the COVID-19 Handling Task Force Wiku Adisasmito in a press release.

Wiku added that the determination of quarantine locations in the Jakarta area was divided into two schemes. First, Indonesian citizens who are migrant workers (PMI), students who have completed their studies abroad, and civil servants who are travelling on assignment will complete quarantine at Wisma Pademangan, Wisma Atlet Kemayoran, Rusun Pasar Rumput, and Rusun Nagrak.

Second, the quarantine of travellers at their own expense is carried out in more than 100 hotels that have obtained CHSE status and based on the recommendations of the COVID-19 Task Force. The option to reduce the duration of quarantine and/or implement self-quarantine at home, can be given to Indonesian citizens of echelon I level and above who return from official trips abroad, said Wiku.

“Officials who are not on official trips abroad and return to Indonesia cannot apply for a dispensation to reduce the duration of quarantine or apply for self-quarantine and must carry out centralised quarantine at a hotel. The entourage for official needs must carry out centralised quarantine,” said Wiku.

According to Wiku, these exemptions and dispensations only apply individually and must be submitted at least three days prior to arrival in Indonesia to the COVID-19 Task Force and will be based on the evaluation of the relevant ministries/agencies.

This provision is in line with the statement of the Head of the COVID-19 Handling Task Force Lt. Gen. Suharyanto at a hearing with the House of Representatives on Monday and is further regulated in more detail in a circular letter.
