INDONESIA: POLIO VACCINE COMPULSORY FOR ARRIVALS FROM THE PHILIPPINES
February 17, 2020
We have earlier advised Members that all Health Offices at Indonesian sea and air ports are directed to coordinate with immigration authorities to ensure that everyone arriving from the Philippines has had a polio vaccination, evidenced by an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICV).
We have now received confirmation that this regulation does apply to ships arriving from the Philippines with non-Filipino crew. Each person on board without the required ICV certificate will be given the polio vaccination on arrival in Indonesia, for which there is a charge.
