Special Immigration Lane for Coronavirus Epicentres confirmed by Kemenhub


The Ministry of Transportation, Kemenhub, has stated that there will be a special lane to be used by foreign citizens who are travelling from epicentre countries of the coronavirus. The intention is to conduct special supervision to minimise the spread of the virus in Indonesia.

Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi explained the four countries to receive special treatment are South Korea, Japan, Italy, and Iran. This special lane will have a scanner to detect the condition of passengers, therefore any passengers detected with the flu and high body temperature will be quarantined.

Previously, Budi declared the government was reviewing restrictions for foreigners from South Korea, Japan, Italy, and Iran since the number of cases in these countries has risen significantly. “There are no restrictions until now,” Budi said.
