Temporary prohibitions of entry and/or transit - Apr 01, 2020
Indonesia is to ban all foreign arrivals and transit passengers through the country, including Bali.

“The President has decided the existing policy needed to be strengthened,” Ms Retno said, adding that the government would tighten screening procedures for Indonesian nationals returning in their thousands from neighbouring countries such as Malaysia.
