PROOF OF VACCINATION
You must have a proof (digital/ printed) of Covid Vaccination, (the last dose must be taken 14 days before traveling to Indonesia).

It is possible that when you arrive in Indonesia, officials will not check your status at all. This does not imply that the requirement is no longer valid; rather, the authorities will rely on the airlines.

There are no more quarantine requirements at this time. Either you meet the requirements for entry into Indonesia or you cannot travel to Indonesia.
Regulations can change and some authorities and airlines might be stricter than others in enforcing the regulations. Sometimes airlines even struggle to stay up to date and might ask for documents, that are effectively not necessary anymore. Please make sure to check also your airline's requirements for traveling to Indonesia.

YES. But not all airlines are back to the full schedule.
And prices have significantly gone up overall.
