Passengers can also show negative results for the GeNose C19 test which was carried out at the train station prior to departure.

 

Ground transportation travel regulations

Land transportation actors from time to time will carry out a random rapid antigen test or a GeNose C19 test if needed by the Regional Covid-19 Handling Task Force.

Therefore, private land transportation travelers are advised to carry out RT-PCR tests or rapid antigen tests whose samples are taken within a maximum period of 3x24 hours before departure.

The traveler can also show a negative result of the GeNose C19 test which is carried out in the rest area as a requirement to continue the trip if at any time a random test is carried out by the Regional Covid-19 Task Force.

 

Special travel regulations to Bali

Especially for trips to Bali by air, sea, and land transportation, whether using private or public vehicles, it is mandatory to show a certificate of negative Covid-19 results. The method can be RT-PCR or rapid antigen test where samples are taken within a maximum period of 2x24 hours before departure.

Travelers can also submit negative results for the GeNose C19 test at airports, seaports and terminals before departure as a travel requirement.

It is also mandatory to fill out Indonesia's e-HAC.

 

Must fill in e-HAC

Travelers with all modes of public and private land transportation are encouraged to fill out Indonesia's e-HAC (electronic-Health Access Card).

Travelers using air and sea transportation are also required to fill out Indonesia's e-HAC.

 

Especially for routine trips on the island of Java

Performers of routine trips on the island of Java are not required to show a letter of the results of the RT-PCR test / rapid antigen test / GeNose C19 test as a condition of travel. Especially those who make regular trips on the island of Java with the sea transportation mode which aims to serve limited inter-island shipping, or between domestic ports within an agglomeration area. Those who travel regularly using land transportation, both private and public within an urban agglomeration area are also not required to produce test results. However, the regional Covid-19 Handling Task Force will conduct random tests from time to time if needed.

 

Travel rule exceptions

Especially for children under the age of five, are not required to take the RT-PCR test or rapid antigen test or GeNose C19 as a condition of travel. These conditions also do not apply to pioneering modes of transportation, including in border areas and in 3T (underdeveloped, frontier, outermost) areas.

Difference from the previous rules

The difference between this new rule and the previous one stated in Circular Task Force Number 7 of 2021, one of which is the question of using the GeNose C19 test. In Circular No.7 / 2021, there is no provision that allows the use of a negative GeNose C19 test result for airplane passengers, sea transportation passengers, as well as passengers on public and private land transportation.

The rules that allow GeNose conditions only apply to travelers using the rail mode of transportation. Then, there is also a change in the validity period of the antigen rapid test requirements for passengers on special aircraft to Bali.

Initially the validity period of this requirement was 1x24 hours, now this requirement can be valid for 2x24 hours, the same as the RT-PCR test requirements. Meanwhile, for other transportation users specifically to Bali, the validity period of the results is getting tighter. Initially the test results are valid for a maximum of 3x24 hours. Now, the test validity period is only 2x24 hours.

Then, the points regulating special travel requirements during long holidays or religious holidays for long-distance travelers using the train mode, private vehicles stipulated in Circular Letter Number 7 are also eliminated.

This regulation is not stated in the new Task Force Circular Letter Number 12 of 2021. Apart from these differences, the provisions in this latest Circular are relatively the same as the previous travel regulations...
