No vaccine required for Indonesia entry

Entry into Indonesia has become easier with their government’s announcement that proof of being vaccinated against Covid-19 will no longer be required.

One of the last countries in the world to still demand proof of Coronavirus protection, Indonesia has of this week removed the need for any checks on vaccination paperwork when visiting.

Getting into Indonesia had been impossible during the full lockdown, and then very difficult thanks to some very tight rules designed to stop the spread of the virus.

And up until recently, there still restrictions in place that meant anyone who tested positive for the disease had to isolate for 10 days, whether at their home or in a hotel. If a follow up PCR test showed the illness had passed after five days, isolation could be left early.

Now travel restrictions to this beautiful holiday destination have been lifted it makes getting that liveaboard experience a much simpler process.
