Staying healthy in Indonesia: Here’s what you need to know

Healthcare facilities and standards in Indonesia can vary significantly depending on the location and the type of facility. Here's what travelers should know.

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

  • Consider vaccines for diseases like chickenpox, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, flu, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), polio, and shingles.

  • A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from travelers aged 9 months and over arriving within 6 days of departure from an area with a risk of yellow fever transmission.

  • Keep updated with Indonesia's COVID-19 requirements, such as quarantine, testing, or vaccine certificates, through your airline or the Indonesian government website.

Medical facilities

In urban areas, private hospitals and specialized centers usually offer high-quality healthcare services. These are also the ones mostly used for medical tourism.

  • In major cities like Jakarta, Bali, and Surabaya, you'll find private hospitals offering a higher standard of care, often on par with Western facilities. These hospitals cater well to international travelers, with English-speaking staff.

  • In Rural areas or smaller islands, medical facilities can be basic. In these regions, clinics may lack advanced equipment or specialized care.

Health insurance

We’d always recommend taking out health insurance before you travel anywhere from any destination.

All the major cities in Indonesia will have private medical care, but it’s expensive. You should choose travel insurance with high medical limits.

Contact your insurance provider before traveling to make sure you have the right level of coverage.

Other things to consider:

  • Trip cancellation, delay, and interruption benefits.

  • Medical expenses and medical evacuation benefits.

  • Baggage coverage.

Things to be aware of when visiting Indonesia

Keep an extra eye on the following to keep healthy and safe during your trip to Indonesia:

1. Food and water contamination: Drink only bottled water and avoid tap water.

2. Mosquito-borne diseases: Dengue fever and malaria are prevalent in Indonesia. Protecting yourself with repellents, wearing long-sleeved clothing, and staying in accommodations with mosquito nets are advisable.

3. Water activities: Indonesia's stunning beaches and marine life are irresistible, but beware of strong currents and riptides when swimming or diving.

Medication for personal use

  • Declare all medications: Report all medication for personal use to customs authorities.

  • Original packaging: Always keep medicines in their original containers and in transparent bags in your hand luggage.
