Raja Ampat Covid Registration Form

Visitors to Raja Ampat were supposed to register before their arrival. However, the system has not been updated and still only shows a form for resident visa holders.
At the moment, there is no need to bother with the registration. However, keep an eye out, this may change at any time.



Flights & More

Transport is mostly back to pre-pandemic operation. Before booking, check the current regulations, and make sure you keep up to date on any changes made by the Indonesian government.

Flights to, from and within Indonesia are mostly back to operating like before the pandemic.

For vaccinated travellers a covid test is only required in case of covid symptoms or body temperature above 37,5°C.

Ferries between Sorong and Waisai are back to normal operation: Daily at 09:00 and 14:00.

However, ferry schedules may change without prior notice. Make sure to check up on the latest schedule and plan in an extra day upon departure to avoid bad surprises.


Covid Specific Advice

In any case, you should consult a medical professional before travelling to Raja Ampat. We have gathered a fair bit of information here: Health & Medical. But we want to remind you that medical care is limited in Raja Ampat.

There are a few simple steps to keep yourself and others safe. Wear a mask while travelling, bring and liberally use hand sanitizer and - whenever possible - keep your distance. Easy enough, right?

Don't even think about travelling without one! You should at least have a medical insurance and - if possible - one that will cover postponing or cancellation of bookings.
