      If not for Corona virus. Indonesia is a very lovely place you will love to be at any point in time. You can try to go maybe after the pandemic has reduced to a minimal level

        Hello....I am new here to this forum, so warmest greetings to everybody.
        i used to live in Indonesia for a few years and during that time I was fotunate enough to meet a very lovely and beautiful young lady and we ended up getting together and having a son together, so handsome and smart too! In fact, this month, he has just turned 11, and I have supported both of themin Indonesia since his birth. They have both already visited me here in England twice, and just before my Mother passed away in March 2019, then Covid starting at the end of the same year, we had made plans for me to go back to Indonesia, in order for the lady and I to have quite a lavish marrage there with all her large family and many friends.
        However, Covid has totally, at least temporarily, thrown our plans right out of the water for now, and is really causing a lot of stress for all of us concerned. As I'm sure many of you are aware, having a child in a Muslim family OUT of wedlock especially in a strict Islamic country such as Indonesia is a big deal for her and her family.
        I HAVE to go there and marry her ASAP, so please, does ANYbody have ANY idea when Indonesia is likely to be removed from the Red List of countries from England, as really I am not prepared to pay over ?2,500 to quarantine in a hotel when I come back to England from Indonesia while my lady stays there to sort out her Spouse Visa...and then, POSSIBLY have to pay over 5 grand for them to quarantine in a hotel in England when and if her Spouse Visa is successful. Fortunately, our son, who is half British and has a UK passport already, foesn't need a UK Visa. This whole situation is driving us both scatty, as, tbh, her still being there, with our son, who is, of course, half British and has NEVER had an Indonesian Visa either. So, we're VERY worried if the Indonesian authorities ever find out about THAT. What could possibly happen to him (AND us) if they did?!?!?
        NO doubt, you can understand my urgency of getting them both OUT of Indonesia and safely to England, yes. I look forward to any advice anybody can offer.
        incidentally, my fianc? informs me that many tourists are still coming to Indonesia but mainly from Holland. Would anybody think I'd get away with flying to Holland, then flying to and back from Indonesia from Holland, then flying back to England from Holland might negate the need to quarantine when back in England?
        Oooo....one last thing. Does anybody know the CURRENT imigration/quarantine rules restrictions AND costs for foreigners actually arriving IN Indonesia at this current time, please and any preferable places TO enter Indonesia other than Jakarta??

        Thanks very much, Doug Branetree from Essex
        On a small sidenote, for some reason, if I try to edit my own posts more than a couple of times in what, a minute(?), i get some kind of popup, informating me my message has been flagged as possible SPAM, even tho it isn't. Would it please be possible for a mod to perhaps change the sensitivity of that particular forum-feature in some way, so it's not so sensitive to editing one's own post...not just for me, but I'm quite sure other users of this forum may have suffered from the same sort of issue when trying to edit their own posts too(?) Yes, I know I'm new here and certainly don't want to come across as fussy or pushy, sorry, but I just thought that could be an issue that might be able to be looked at(?)

          (1) The problem of documents affects all children in this situation .

          (2) I don't know , but fortunately the number of Covid-19 cases in Indonesia decreased a lot lately .

          (3) As he is a foreigner in Indonesia without an Indnesian Visa/Stay Permit , I think he risks being deported (but not for free , you will have to provide the flight ticket) . No fine if the case doesn't go to Court .

          (4) I don't think passing through Holland helps .

          (5) Below is the last news I have .
          [The Spokesperson for the .. Minister .., Jodi Mahardi, stated ...
          "All foreigners who come to Indonesia, starting July 6, 2021, must show a vaccine card (fully vaccinated) and a negative PCR result for COVID-19 before entering Indonesia," said Jodi ...

          In addition, foreigners and Indonesian citizens are required to undergo quarantine for 8 days with two PCR tests upon arrival and on the 7th day of arrival.]

                My sincere thanks and appreciations for your kind advice, help and time up til now, marcus. May we have the pleasure to know where you're originally from, please, and are you an expat living somewhere in Indonesia now? It was VERY good to learn, thanks to you, that cases of Covid have, appently, been lessening lately. Do you have any figures, say, compared to England, where, sadly, new cases of Covid are still averaging over 30,000 every DAY here in England, along with daily deaths still averaging over 100 per day too.....Quite terrible!!
                One last thing for now, would you say, other than this forum, 'The Jakarta Post' is the best online source of current affairs in Indonesia or could you please suggest any other better source of information?

                Cheers until next time

                  (a) I prefer to just say that I am from a poor South American country (to be not easily recognized in case I say something bad) .

                  (b) I live in Bandung (around 140 km from Jakarta) .

                  (c) From https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ , 17 Sep 2021 , Indonesia : 3'835 new cases , 219 new deaths (there were around 10 times more about one month ago) . I guess the number of new cases cannot be compared with the number in England because it depends on the number of the people tested . The Indonesian Government has used the rate of new cases per the number of persons tested , how full are the hospitals , ... too , and now it looks a lot better than before (this is why since 2 days ago Indonesian Immigration is letting more foreigners to come to Indonesia) .

                  (d) My personal favorites are The Jakarta Post and https://www.detik.com/ (in Indonesian , which I translate with Google Translate) . But I also check the Immigration sources (www.imigrasi.go.id , https://web.facebook.com/DitjenImigrasi/, https://twitter.com/ditjen_imigrasi) , and search the internet .
