Amid COVID-19 outbreak situation, Indonesia updated its entry requirements for foreign seafarers, according to the latest information by GAC.
For Indian crew members coming to Indonesia to join their vessel, an E-Visa may be issued. However, they are required to quarantine for 14 days in India before entering Indonesia, and for another 8 days in the country before joining their ship. A No Objection Letter (NOC) from the police is compulsory.
