Based on the results of a limited Cabinet meeting on Tuesday (31/3), President Joko Widodo has temporarily halted the entry and transiting to all regions of Indonesia for all foreigners in order to prevent the transmission of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

“It has been decided that all visits and transit of foreign nationals to Indonesian territory will be temporarily stopped,” said Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi at a press conference after a the Cabinet meeting.

However, foreign citizens who have a Limited Stay Permit (KITAS), Permanent Stay Permit (KITAP), holders of Diplomatic Stay Permits and Official Stay Permits, can still enter the territory of Indonesia by following the appropriate and applicable health protocols.

This new policy will be valid for an undetermined period of time and will be regulated in a forthcoming Law and Human Rights Ministry regulation.
