Starting today, Wednesday, September 8, 2021, electric trains (KRL) passengers are only required to show a Covid-19 vaccine certificate at least one dose of vaccine. Previously, PT KAI Commuter required passengers to attach several documents such as a Worker Registration Certificate (STRP), assignment letter, work certificate, and a letter from the local government.
“The requirements for this vaccine certificate come into effect on Wednesday, September 8, 2021,” said Anne Purba, VP Corporate Secretary of KAI Commuter in an official statement as reported by CNN Indonesia, Tuesday (7/9).
The latest conditions for riding the KRL refer to the Circular from the Task Force for Handling Covid-19 of the Republic of Indonesia Number 17 of 2021 concerning Changes in Travel Provisions for Domestic People During the Covid-19 Pandemic on September 6, 2021.
As reported from detik.com, KRL users are required to show the vaccine certificate to the officer at the station. The vaccine certificate can be shown through the PeduliLindungi application, in physical form (printed), or digital (photo file).
In addition, officers will check ID cards or other identities with the aim of matching data with vaccine certificates. The KAI Commuter Line still provides a transition period until September 10, 2021. However, the STRP or assignment letter is no longer valid for taking the KRL from September 11, 2021.
As for passengers who have not received the vaccine due to medical problems, they can show an official certificate from a doctor at the Public Health Center (Puskesmas) and Hospitals to still be able to ride the KRL.
Quoted from detikcom, the requirement to show a vaccine certificate applies to the Jabodetabek Commuter Line KRL, Yogyakarta – Solo KRL, Prambanan Express (Kutoarjo – Yogyakarta PP) trains, and local trains operated by KAI Commuter.
