In consideration of the continuous Covid-19 outbreak but with the need to recover the national economy, the Minister of Law and Human Rights (the “Minister”) enacted the Minister Regulation No. 26 of 2020 dated October 1, 2020 on Visas and Stay Permits During New Habits Adaptation or as commonly referred to as the “New Normal” (“Regulation 26”). The government viewed that the previous foreigners entry restrictions were no longer relevant nor needed in order to conform with the New Normal conditions.

The restrictions thereof were previously set out under the Minister Regulation No. 11 of 2020 dated March 31, 2020 on Temporary Restriction for Foreigners in Entering the Territory of the Republic of Indonesia (“Regulation 11”).  Regulation 26 revokes Regulation 11 effective as of October 1, 2020.
