State-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II has extended its air travel restrictions to June 7.

According to circular letter No. 5/2020 issued by the COVID-19 task force, only certain people are allowed to fly, such as state officials, private-sector workers, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) employees, individuals who need emergency medical care, family members of a deceased individual in another city/province or abroad and repatriated Indonesian nationals.

Passengers are also required to bring the following documents:

  • Letter of assignment for employees of SOEs and/or region-owned enterprises, non-governmental organizations and business institutions, signed by directors and other higher-ups.
  • Negative COVID-19 reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test results that are valid for seven days or non-reactive rapid test results that are valid for three days during the trip.
  • Those who live in regions that don’t provide PCR tests or rapid test facilities should obtain a letter from a hospital doctor or community health centers (Puskesmas) stating they are COVID-19-free.
  • Non-state officials or private-sector workers should bring a statement made known to the subdistrict head or village head.
  • Identity card.
  • Departure and arrival schedules.

For repatriated Indonesian nationals, including migrant workers:

  • Identity card.
  • Statement letter from the Agency for the Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers (BP2MI) or statement letter from the country’s representative offices abroad for Indonesian migrant workers.

  • Negative COVID-19 reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test results that are valid for seven days or non-reactive rapid test results that are valid for three days.

Those who wish to travel to Greater Jakarta should have an exit and entry permit (SIKM). PT Angkasa Pura II has established checkpoints for SIKM requirements.

Muhammad Awaluddin, president director of PT Angkasa Pura II, said passengers can apply for SIKM online prior to their flight.

“Soekarno-Hatta International Airport won’t provide an area for SIKM applications,” Awaluddin told kompas.com. (wir/wng)
