BRITISH & other foreign nationals with work and residence permits are required to obtain a PCR test PRIOR to checking in for a flight returning you to Indonesia. The test certificate should be within 7 days of arrival. If you already have a negative PCR test result, you will not have to take the Rapid/PCR test again. Otherwise,  you must take rapid test upon arrival, 1) if the result is reactive you will be referred to the local emergency hospital/ referral hospital; 2) if the result is non-reactive, you must take the PCR test and be quarantined at your own expense until your PCR test result is issued. This is for guidance and you should always check the latest government advice.


As the British Embassy/Consulate in Indonesia do not have the capacity to receive your health clearance, please submit your health clearance to the medical team at the airport to be forwarded to the local Health Office for supervising your 14-days self-quarantine.
