The Government of Indonesia has officially extended Restrictions on Community Activities (PPKM) until August 2 in order to suppress the spread of Covid-19.

During this extension, domestic travel requirements shall be enforced in a number of areas with declared PPKM levels of 3 and 4.

Travel conditions apply to private cars, motorbikes, and long-distance public transportation such as planes, buses, ships and trains.

Until August 2, areas designated as PPKM levels 4 and 3, the travel conditions only apply to arrivals and departures to Java and Bali. The conditions do not apply to travel in agglomeration/ megaregion areas such as the Jakarta Metropolitan Area (Jabodetabek.)

Domestic air travelers require a vaccination card showing at least one dose of Covid-vaccine as well as negative results of a PCR test carried out within two days of travel.

Land travelers must show negative results of an antigen test taken the day before traveling.

The government has exempted drivers of logistics vehicles and other goods transportation from certain travel requirements. For these drivers, the only requirement for travel is a certificate of vaccination showing at least the first dose.

The government has extended PPKM in Java and Bali, and a number of areas on other islands until August 2 to suppress the spread of Covid-19. However, during this extension, the government has begun to relax restrictions on a number of sectors that previously were completely closed.

Loosened restrictions include re-opening public markets that sell products other than basic necessities, supermarkets and malls in PPKM level 3 areas. The government has also permitted wedding receptions with a maximum capacity of 20 people.
