  • COVID-19 Test Requirement For Entering Indonesia

    Hi. I hope someone can please help me. My wife has been out of Indonesia for a week and before leaving she got a rapid test done. She is planning to return in a couple days and we have heard conflicting reports about what type of test is needed when we returns. One source told us that she needs the CPR test or else they will quarantine her in a hotel while she takes that test and waits for the results. Other sources claim that only a negative rapid test result is sufficient. Can anyone please confirm which is true? Has anyone here traveled into Indonesia recently that can provide current accurate information? Thank you so much.
