TEMPO.CO, JakartaOnly foreigners who have been fully vaccinated could travel to Indonesia starting July 6, 2021, according to Jodi Mahardi, spokesman of the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment.

"Every foreigner, starting July 6, 2021, is required to present a vaccine card (showing that he or she has been fully vaccinated) and a negative COVID-19 PCR test result before entering Indonesia," Jodi said in a written statement here on Sunday.

Meanwhile, vaccination certificate exemption is given to foreign diplomats and ministerial level officials in accordance with diplomatic relations practices that are also applied by other countries, he said quoting a statement of the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan.

Indonesian citizens who will enter Indonesia but do not have a vaccine card, are required to present a negative COVID PCR test result. After being quarantined and are proven to be free from COVID-19, they will immediately get vaccinated.

"Quarantine rules are applied to both foreigners and Indonesian citizens. They have to undergo quarantine for eight days with two PCR tests, namely on arrival and on day 7," he added.

As for the quarantine limit for 8 days, this is in accordance with the Ministry of Health's directives.

Indonesia saw a record increase in daily COVID-19 cases on July 3, 2021, with 27,913 new infections and 493 deaths reported across the country. The number of single-day recoveries stood at 13,282, while active cases were pegged at 281,677. Since the government announced the first COVID-19 cases on March 2, 2020, the tally of infections has so far reached 2,256,851, while the death toll has touched 60,027.

With the second COVID-19 wave leading to a drastic spike in infections in several regions, particularly Jakarta and other cities on Java Island, the Indonesian government has imposed restrictions on public activities starting July 3 until 20, 2021.
