Travel Corridor Arrangement for Singaporean Nationals
UPDATE – 1 January 2021
From January 1, international visitors will be barred from entering Indonesia for a 2-week period in a bid to stem the spread of a new potentially more contagious strain of the coronavirus.
From October 29, 2020, Singaporean nationals and lawful residents may be eligible to travel to Indonesia for business or official travel of up to 30 days using a “Travel Corridor Arrangement” (TCA) scheme. Persons seeking to use the TCA must be sponsored by either an Indonesia-based company or an Indonesian government agency, which will file an application on their behalf for a specific e-visa. Once approved, e-visa holders must then submit their travel history and a detailed itinerary online via the “Electronic Health Card” (e-HAC) system and must hold a valid return ticket.
Persons seeking to use the TCA must, at their own expense, obtain a certificate showing a negative result for COVID-19 issued no more than 72 hours prior to departure using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test performed by an approved medical services provider in Singapore. TCA travellers are limited to arrival via Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) or the Batam Center Ferry Terminal.
Upon arrival, TCA travellers will undergo an additional PCR test at their own expense and will be transported by the host company or government agency to a non-residential accommodation where they must self-isolate while awaiting their test results. Upon confirmation of a negative test result, the host company or government agency will ensure the traveller is transported to and from their workplace for the duration of the traveller’s stay in Indonesia and refrains from using public transportation. The host company or government agency will further ensure the traveller properly registers with the e-HAC system and observes all local pandemic control measures.
Foreign nationals are prohibited from entering Indonesia. This policy does not apply to persons who fall into one of the following categories:
Children of dual citizenship registered in the Indonesian immigration system as Indonesian citizens;
Holders of a “Temporary Stay Permit” or a “Permanent Stay Permit” (Permanent Residents/KITAS and KITAP) with a valid “Multiple Re-Entry Permit” (MERP);
Holders of an Indonesian diplomatic visa or an official/service visa, or those who hold Indonesian diplomatic stay or official / service stay permits;
Those engaged in medical services or the delivery of supplies or humanitarian assistance;
Crew members working on air, land, or sea transportation;
Those travelling for essential work on national strategic projects.
From December 24, 2020, all foreign nationals, regardless of purpose, who have visited the United Kingdom (including in transit) are prohibited from entering Indonesia. All persons arriving from other locations abroad are required to carry a health certificate showing a negative result for COVID-19 issued no more than 72 hours prior to departure using a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test performed by a recognized health authority. Failure to produce a valid certificate may result in denial of entry. Upon arrival, all persons are subject to additional testing for COVID-19 and will be directed to either self-isolate or undergo quarantine at a designated facility. Foreign nationals must cover all testing and quarantine-related expenses for themselves. Indonesian nationals arriving from the United Kingdom must undergo additional quarantine and testing procedures.

To apply for a multiple-entry visa, you need to obtain a telex letter from your office in Jakarta. The office in Jakarta must apply for a telex letter from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Indonesia. Once the telex is issued you can submit for multiple entry. Additionally, a completed, stamped and signed authorisation letter is needed from the same local sponsor in Indonesia that applied for the telex.
If an applicant is invited by an individual sponsor, a copy of their Indonesian Identity Card/KTP.
