    Sorry , I added the word "result" in my translation of the Immigration document , as it may make a big difference .

    Now , reading more of the document , my opinion is that the foreigner probably needs to do the PCR test , or other test(s) .

    Why ? The Immigration document (signed by the Immigration Director) has lower power than the REGULATION No. 26 OF 2020 (signed by the Minister) , so I understand that what the Immigration Director wanted to explain is that although the foreigner needs to present "a health certificate in English declaring to be free from Covid-19 by a competent authority at their home country" (according to the Regulation) , he/she does not need to present the PCR test result itself .

    But I may be wrong . It is possible that the Immigration Director got an ok from the Minister to simplify the Visa request process , so since the last 11 February , it may be as simple as that . But I guess usually at any country , to travel abroad , the airport authority/airline company will require a Covid-19 test anyway .

    Yes , the first step is to get the e-Visa , then later (probably) other health procedures .

    Unfortunately I could not get updated information from www.imigrasi.go.id . The last rule I did read was adocument from the Indonesian Immigration dated 11 Feb 2021 (see below) .

    Anyway , your sponsor will find out as soon as he/she tries to get the e-Visa .
