Fly out of Jakarta Recently?

My son is in Surabaya and got COVID several weeks ago even though he was fully vaccinated with Pfizer vaccine. We had to rebook his flight to return to the US until he recovered. The US recognizes that if you have had COVID that you might test positive for up to 3 months and they will allow you to return if you have a clear to fly letter from a health care professional that you have recovered and are no longer infectious. Indonesia doesn't recognize such a thing. To fly from Surabaya to Jakarta regardless of it being the initial leg of an international flight, requires a negative PCR test because that's the rule for domestic travel.

He can get a driver to drive him 10 hours to Jakarta to start his flight home and he'll also have a negative antigen test, but before he does we want to know whether the airport will have a checkpoint to check all passengers for a negative PCR test? Has anyone departed Jakarta recently and know if there's a checkpoint for all passengers to see documentation of a negative PCR test or does he just need to satisfy the airline requirements for the destination? Thank you for anything you can share!

You have such a specific question -- I'd really register on flyertalk and ask there. There are Indonesia-based members as well as some who have flown through recently. You're much more likely to get useful advice from that community of air travel geeks

Good luck
