    Post COVID Travel Essentials for Indonesia

    You must be wondering about what measures and safety guidelines to follow before and during your trip. This section takes you through everything you need to know to plan a safe trip, including visa and passport essentials, travel insurance, what to pack, etc.

    Packing Essentials
    • N-95 masks N95 mask is a global-standard respirator mask that is made from polypropylene and can filter out at least 95% of very small (0.3 micron) particles. N95 masks are also capable of filtering out all types of pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. With mandatory use of masks across airports and all forms of social interactions, it's mandatory that you carry at least 2 masks with yourself.

    • Gloves Non-sterile patient examination gloves, which are routinely used in healthcare settings, are appropriate for keeping your hands from getting contaminated. Remember to carry a bunch due to their disposable nature.

    • Hand sanitizer Hand sanitizers sold in pharmacies typically have an alcohol concentration of around 60%. It has been observed that hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol concentration work effectively and can inactive the novel coronavirus. Though most attractions are reopening with sanitisation stations, it's only beneficial to carry your own in case you run into an emergency.

    • Portable charger We all understand the value of staying connected in these times. As travel in the post COVID world moves towards a more contact-free and digital experience, it’s important that you always carry a portable charger when you travel.

    • Digital thermometer & first-aid kit You can prevent unnecessary trips to the hospital if you carry a first-aid kit with yourself. Take a digital thermometer along as they’re durable and you can keep a regular check on your body temperature.

    • Extra clothes Carry an extra pair of clothes with you that you wear only at the airports or other places with heavy footfall while traveling. While catching the air-borne virus can be prevented by wearing masks and social distancing, carrying an extra pair of clothes just minimises the risk that much further.

    • Ziplock bags Use zip lock bags to isolate pieces of clothing or items that you will not be using again. This will prevent any possibility of cross-contamination.

    Health & Hygiene
    • Wash your hands frequently Wash your hands with soap regularly and thoroughly to remove pathogens. You can also use alcohol-based sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol to kill bacteria and viruses.

    • Maintain distance and avoid close contact (6 feet or 2 arms length) Maintain at least 6feet distance between yourself and others. When someone coughs or sneezes, or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus.

    • Always wear a mask in public Since COVID-19 is a respiratory disease and is air-borne, wear a mask, coupled with social distancing to prevent getting infected and/or spreading it to others.

    • Clean and disinfect surfaces Clean surfaces using soap and water, then use disinfectant. Cleaning with soap and water reduces the number of germs, dirt and impurities on the surface. Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces.

    Travel/Health Insurance

    Travel insurance is now going to become even more important than it was. Whether it’s regarding flight cancellations or medical emergencies, insurance while traveling is going to play a major part in our travel planning and expenses. There are 5 major types of insurances available for you to consider:

    • Trip Cancellation These insurances cover you if you were to cancel your trip due to unforeseen events such as illness, injury, or death suffered by the insured or a member of the insured’s immediate family. Some policies however exclude trip cancellation in the event of war or civil disturbance.

    • Flight Delay/Cancellation Flight delay/cancellation insurance pays for new travel arrangements/flight tickets and in some cases, accommodations and meals. This depends on your provider so read your policy carefully.

    • Medical Insurance Medical insurance covers the cost of transportation in case of emergency medical evacuation, due to injury or sickness. Some medical insurances also cover COVID-19 infections should you get infected after the effective policy date.

    You may sometimes end up having to pay up front for your medical services, which will then be reimbursed by your insurance company. In other cases, the insurance company will provide “proof of direct payment” to the healthcare provider.

    • Baggage Loss Baggage loss insures you in case your luggage is lost, delayed, or stolen. It sometimes includes a cash payment if your bags are delayed for more than 12/24 hours after you arrive at your destination.

    • Travel Document Protection Travel document protection insurance covers you so that you can replace a lost passport or other travel documents.

    What to do in an Emergency

    Seek medical attention if you have any of the following symptoms:

    • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
    • Troubled breathing
    • New confusion
    • Inability to wake or stay awake
    • Bluish lips or face

    If you think you have been exposed to novel coronavirus (COVID-19) or have any of the symptoms mentioned above, seek medical attention immediately.
