These are the New Rules for Boarding Planes and Trains in Indonesia Regarding Covid-19

Flight passengers aged 6 to 17 years are required to get a second dose of vaccine.

AP II Vice President of Corporate Communication Akbar Putra Mardhika said that all airports managed by PT Angkasa Pura II would apply the mandatory booster vaccination rule for adult airplane passengers.

Akbar added that this condition came into effect on Monday, August 29, 2022,

This provision is in accordance with the Circular Letter of the Ministry of Transportation Number SE 82 of 2022 concerning Guidelines for the Implementation of Travel for Domestic People during the Covid-19 Pandemic Period.

"PPDN or domestic flight passengers aged 18 years and over must have received the third dose of vaccine (booster)," said Akbar Putra Mardhika in a written statement, Sunday, August 28, 2022.

As for PPDN aged 6 to 17 years, passengers are required to get a second dose of vaccine. Meanwhile, for PPDN with the status of foreign citizens (WNA) originating from overseas travel and aged 18 years and over, passengers must show a second dose of vaccine documents.

Furthermore, PPDN with the status of foreigners originating from overseas trips aged 6 to 17 years is exempt from vaccination obligations. The same rules apply to PPDN with Indonesian citizenship.

However, passengers with this age range must travel with a companion who has met the provisions of the Covid-19 vaccination.

Akbar said that according to the latest regulations, PPDNs with special health conditions or comorbid diseases that prevent them from receiving vaccinations are excluded from the vaccination requirements. They must attach a doctor's certificate from a government hospital.

Every Indonesian citizen who flies on domestic routes is also required to use the PeduliLindung application. AP II airports are still opening booster vaccination centers for airplane passengers.

Train Passengers

PT KAI's VP of Public Relations Joni Martinus said that starting Tuesday, August 30, long-distance train passengers aged 18 years and over must have received a booster vaccine. Meanwhile, passengers aged 6-17 are required to have a second vaccination.

PT KAI urges prospective passengers to immediately get a booster vaccine before their scheduled departure. This is because passengers who cannot show proof of having been vaccinated against the booster are not allowed to ride the train.

From 30 August customers who cannot show proof of the vaccination will not be allowed to board the train.
