Indonesia Health Alert Card

Quarantine is frequently a major concern for foreign nationals coming to Indonesia. In the past, Indonesian authorities have quarantined people for reasons that were not always obvious despite taking adequate precautions for the duration of the stay.

The healthcare system in Indonesia is modern and well-equipped. It has one of Asia's best healthcare facilities. However, it is still necessary for foreign nationals to carry out their own verification of hygiene and immunizations before entering the country. Travelers to Indonesia must have a Indonesia Health Alert Card and proof that they are insured. An Indonesian Health Alert Card is required for all foreigners under 18 years old, students and foreigners living or working in Indonesia, as well as any other foreigners not holding permanent resident status. Foreigners over the age limit who do not have a card are still required to have one.

The current Indonesian health protocol requires all foreign nationals coming to the country to show either a COVID 19 vaccination certificate or an Indonesian Certificate of Disease Registration. A CO VID 19 vaccination certificate is required for foreigners who travel to Indonesia. These vaccinations have been approved by the World Health Organization. They are recommended for all Indonesian visitors. However, foreign nationals coming to Indonesia need also to have had their immunization records in their country of permanent residence before visiting Indonesia. Anyone who travels to Indonesia from another country and is unable or unwilling to obtain their immunization records there must have an Indonesia health alert card.

Both countries share a commonality in healthcare issues and both are committed to maintaining high-quality healthcare systems. In Indonesia, the Indonesian Medicine Council (MMD) is the central coordinating body for medical affairs. All health facilities in Indonesia follow set clinical standards, which are based on the principle of natural prevention using traditional and western medications. The CO VID 19 vaccine and the Indonesian Certificate of Disease Registration are both strictly adhered to. All foreign medical personnel must also have a certificate of clearance issued by the local Ministry of Health and a health alert card issued from the Indonesian Ministry of Health.

The private sector is Indonesia's primary healthcare system. Most private hospitals in major cities are government-owned. Many private hospitals in Indonesia offer high-quality health services at a reduced cost or at subsidized rates to their patients. Private hospitals in Indonesia may refuse to accept patients without a passport or other proofs. Others may refuse foreign patients unless they provide proof of insurance. The healthcare system in Indonesia has a high structure and hospitals are primarily responsible for managing hospitals and nursing homes. Healthcare providers rely on the Indonesian Ministry of Health for allocating resources and will cooperate with all foreign nationals seeking admission into their hospital.

Quarantine is frequently a major concern for foreign nationals coming to Indonesia. In the past, Indonesian authorities have quarantined people for reasons that were not always obvious despite taking adequate precautions for the duration of the stay. Many B visa holders were unable to leave Bali because of a previous Australian restriction. This resulted in a large influx of Australian citizens seeking employment and Australia initially responded by declaring Bali a "Quarantine Zone", effectively closing the entire island off for Australian residents. This and other risks make it important for all applicants for non-immigrant visas to understand the conditions they will have to adhere to once they arrive in Indonesia.

The health declaration form provides basic information on the status of any foreign national wishing to live in Indonesia. The form also requires the individual's name, contact details, and date of birth. There are specific requirements concerning foreign students and those applying for work, which are outlined on the form. As well as providing information on the number of days of stay, the Indonesian citizens are required to list any family members who are settled in Indonesia, the name of any dependents and where they reside.
