Foreigners Can Get Vaccinated Through This Way

Foreigners Vaccination

Siti Nadia Tarmizi, Spokesperson for Covid-19 Vaccination from the Ministry of Health revealed how foreigners can get vaccinated. They can get vaccinated through the “Gotong Royong Vaccination Program”.

To get Gotong Royong vaccinations, foreigners must have a Limited Stay Permit Card (KITAS) or Permanent Stay Permit Card (KITAP). Both of these documents are important for vaccine certification.

Quoted from Kompas.com, foreigners can use two ways to get vaccines, including through the embassies of their respective countries, which can be delivered and arranged at a certain time. Then the embassy will contact BioFarma or Kimia Farma.

A number of embassies have brought in the Covid-19 vaccine independently from their country of origin to protect their citizens in Indonesia.

Quoted from merdeka.com, the embassies include the embassies of the United States, Japan, Britain, and Germany.

Apart from embassies from their respective countries, the second way that can be done is through companies where foreigners work. Similar to embassies, companies can contact PT Kimia Farma to arrange a vaccination schedule.

Unfortunately, the implementation of the Covid-19 vaccination cannot be carried out at any time. This is because it must be adjusted to the number of vaccination targets and health care facilities. This means that the schedule for vaccination must be arranged in advance.

Foreigners who have comorbidities and cannot be vaccinated. They can attach a certificate from the hospital. Nadia also suggested that foreigners who are going to Indonesia should have received the Covid-19 vaccination.
