Indonesia currently accepts all known vaccine types; you just need to provide a complete certificate of vaccination in English




If you cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons, you can provide the official exemption letter in English from the government hospital to apply for a visa and enter the country. FYI (!) your visa application can be rejected. Also, some airlines do not allow boarding without a vaccine, so please confirm this information with your airline first.

    Just for clarification for Australians we have to enter Indonesia via Jakarta and cannot got to Bali to quarantine. Is this correct?

    Dear Bert Dunsford,

    That is correct. Australian citizens first have to fly to Jakarta to have their quarantine.
    At the moment there are no international direct flights arriving in Bali as far as we know so in fact everyone shall have to go through Jakarta.
