Indonesia has increased the mandatory quarantine period for all international arrivals from seven days to 10 days, effective starting Friday, as the Omicron variant continues to spread across the globe. The government earlier this week banned foreigners that have been in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Mozambique, Eswatini, Malawi, Angola, Zambia and Hong Kong within two weeks before departing to Indonesia. The exceptions are Indonesians returning from these countries, who are subjected to a 14 day-quarantine. Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, who is leading the government’s COVID-19 response in Java and Bali, said the longer quarantine period was ordered by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo.
