        Hi cometoindonesia,

        I’m currently researching about traveling to Bali in June! I’ve read multiple sources online that seem to say the app is still mandatory? Could you provide any links to where it’s stated that you don’t need the app to travel anymore as a foreigner? Thank you!

  1. Sarah

    I managed to download app, completed information and got confirmation of my account and that my vaccine proof was accepted. Logged out of the app and now unable to log back in via either mobile or email address!! Says “unknown user” so tried to Register again but won’t allow me to do that either!!! Any suggestions?

    The described App is not available anymore for apple users. The new app (you will get forward automatically) is SATUSEHAT.
    The most bad programming i have seen in my life (and i am from IT-Business)… you are completely unable to create a user account in it. Only fault messages, nothing more… How can a government makes the entry to their country dependent at a not running software? Seems Indonesia will loose a lot of tourists actually coz the new App is still mandatory… So all tourists have to cancel their vacations in Indonesia till the app is running….excuse my sarcasm , but this is definitely not a good acting… the support out the App is not reacting at all to.

    hi, i can’t get though uploading my certs. what is the best way to do it. I can upload my 3th dose, but can’t find my first dose cert. Any way to go around it?

    1. cometoindonesia

      Hi Fernando, It is no longer necessary to upload covid certificates to the app. It is only mandatory to have the app installed on the mobile and create a user. Have a good trip!
