Indonesian President Joko Widodo announced that starting May 18, 2022, fully vaccinated tourists could enter the country without presenting a negative PCR test and antibody sample.

In addition, attendance at low-population outdoor events is allowed without masks. However, personal protective equipment must still be worn in public transport and enclosed areas.

In other cases, the rules remain unchanged. Unvaccinated travelers are not allowed to enter Indonesia, and people with a single dose of the two-part vaccine must undergo a five-day quarantine.

Since late March, Indonesia has seen a significant decrease in new cases of Covid-19. On March 17, 2022, there were 1,532 cases, and on May 17, the number was already 247. The number of fully vaccinated Indonesians as of the same date is 61% of the total population.
