Requirements for travelling to Indonesia with pets
If you are planning to visit Indonesia with a pet, you must consider the following veterinary requirements.
First, the pet owner must apply for an import permit from the Directorate of Livestock Service and Animal Health, Ministry of Agriculture. The application must be accompanied by a copy of the owner's passport, a copy of a valid animal health certificate and a copy of the pet's vaccination records. The process of obtaining an import permit usually takes about 2 weeks, after which the permit is valid for 30 days.
In order for your pet to be allowed to enter Indonesia, it must:
• Be accompanied by an animal health certificate (or pet passport) certified by an authorized veterinarian in your country;
• Be vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days, but not more than a year before the planned trip;
• Have a certificate of vaccination against rabies, certified by an authorized veterinarian and confirming the vaccination;
• Be vaccinated against other infectious viruses;
• Pets must be at least 90 days old to be imported into Indonesia.
Mandatory vaccinations for dogs: against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza and Bordetella.

Upon arrival in Indonesia, all animals must be screened at a special Quarantine Station at the airport. For this, you must inform the Animal Quarantine Officer in advance of your date and time of arrival (no later than two days before travel). During the inspection, the quarantine veterinarian will check the pet's documents, its state of health, and if everything meets the standards, the pet will be sent to mandatory quarantine. Quarantine of animals can take from 14 to 21 days.
