Indonesia is Open!
Indonesia is open

After being closed to tourists for two years, Indonesia is finally open to foreigners! If you are at all familiar with our inventory of snorkeling safaris, this is a game-changer as the majority of our snorkeling safaris take place in this stunning island nation. We couldn’t be more pleased to finally be able to once again offer you guys access to some of our most popular snorkeling adventures like our Alor-Komodo Safaris, Misool Resort Safaris, North Sulawesi, Wakatobi, and of course both Triton & Cenderawasih Bay, among many others. For those of you wondering what the protocol is for entering Indonesia, here’s a quick look at what it’s like to enter Indonesia currently. 

Entering Indonesia

When the country first opened its borders to tourists in late March/Early April there were understandably a few hoops to jump through. Over the past few weeks, those hoops have been steadily removed, almost on a daily basis. Currently—and these are likely to ease up over the next few weeks, all you need to enter Indonesia is:

  • Proof of being fully vaccinated
  • Printed results of Negative PCR test taken no more than 48 hours before departure
  • The PeduliLindnugi app INSTALLED on your phone
  • Proof of medical insurance covering COVID related cases

As you can see there are still a few hoops to jump through, but these are pretty big and easy hoops that are essentially standard for all countries across the world, including the United States. These are all expected to be lifted over the next few weeks and months as well. It may sound like a lot of extra things to think of or plan for, but when you actually look at the list, most of you will already have them all completed anyway. As long as you are vaccinated and have health insurance all you need to do is download an app, and get a PCR test, that’s literally it!
