The Indonesian government has officially imposed a ban on foreign nationals (WNA) from 14 countries to prevent the spread of the Omicron virus.
This rule is contained in the Covid-19 Task Force Circular No.1/2022 concerning Health Protocols for Overseas Travel During the 2019 Corina Virus Disease (Covid-19) Pandemic.
In the regulation, the 14 countries referred to are South Africa, Botswana, Norway, France, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Eswatini, Lesotho, England, and Denmark.
The announcement, which was signed by the Head of the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) as well as the Chair of the Covid-19 Task Force, Suharyanto, ensured that Indonesia temporarily closed the entry of foreigners from these 14 countries, or foreigners who had transited in the country. The rules also apply to those who have lived and/or visited the country within a period of 14 days.
