The government has tightened travel conditions over the Christmas and New Year period. The tightening comes into effect today, Friday 24 December 2021 to 2 January 2022.

The tightening of travel restrictions is stipulated in Circular Letter (SE) 109/2021 related to domestic travel requirements and diversion of freight car traffic flow.


Director General of Land Transportation of the Ministry of Transportation Budi Setiyadi stated that the obligation of all travelers is a complete vaccine dosing card.


"The obligation of all travelers, whether using private vehicles, public transportation vehicles, including crossings, including motorcycles, first is a complete dose vaccine card," Budi said some time ago, quoted on Friday (12/24/2021).


If you have just received the first dose of the vaccine, it should include a negative antigen test result with a maximum sample of 7x24 hours.


If you have not received a dose of the vaccine at all, then the traveler must attach a negative antigen examination result with a maximum sample of 1x24 hours.


In addition, travelers must also get a negative result of rapid antigen test 1x24 hours, as well as use the PeduliLindungi application during travel.


Travelers under the age of 12 must show negative RT-PCR results a maximum of 3x24 hours before departure and are excluded from vaccination card conditions.


The capacity of public transportation vehicles is limited to 75% of the maximum capacity. People who travel will also be carried out body checks including the provision of hand sanitizer.


For routine travelers in the agglomeration area it is not required to show a vaccine card and a negative certificate rapid antigen test.


Later, an odd-even system will be implemented in agglomeration areas, provincial capitals, tourist attraction areas, and other regions adapted to the increased mobility of the area.
