Retno Marsudi, the Foreign Minister of Indonesia, has announced that international visitors in the country will not be allowed for a period of 2 weeks starting January 1, 2021.
“It has been decided in a high-level meeting on the Dec. 28 that our borders will temporarily shut from Jan. 1 to 14, 2021 to foreigners from all countries,” Retno said during a press conference.
The policy states that the only exceptions to the policy are official visits from foreign ministers or higher-ranked politicians.
International travelers arriving between today and Dec. 31 must present a negative PCR test result obtained at most two days before their departure. Upon arrival in Indonesia, they will be required to undergo a follow-up PCR test and be placed in a government-assigned quarantine facility for five days. After quarantine, they will have to undergo another PCR test and will be free to go on their way if the result comes out negative.
