PCR tests no longer required to fly to Java-Bali – Indonesia Expat
The government has again changed the conditions for air travel to Java and Bali, declaring that PCR testing is no longer a requirement for flying.
“For travel, there is change, especially for the regions of Java and Bali. Air travel no longer requires the use of a PCR test but simply the use of an antigen test. This is the same as what has been applied to regions outside of Java and Bali,», Declared the Coordinating Minister of Human Development and Culture Muhadjir Effendy.
Recently, the government required a PCR test as a condition of flight despite passengers who were vaccinated with a full dose. This new policy harvests the pros and cons in the community.
Besides the issue of changing boarding conditions on the plane, there are several other outcomes of the weekly meeting. Muhadjir said there was an increase in COVID-19 cases in 131 districts and towns.
There are also highlights regarding the preparations for the Christmas and New Year holidays.
“The end-of-year celebrations are anticipated by all the ministries and institutions concerned by updating the rules necessary to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. These rules concern the movement of people, tourist sites, shops, places of worship and others,” he said.
The government has also made a number of preparations related to Bali which will be the venue for many international events.
“Bali is of particular concern because in March-May and throughout 2022 there will be major events of international scope which will invite many leaders from friendly countries,” he said.
