Indonesia is a truly remarkable country, and to ensure you get only the best out of your trip to Jakarta and other parts of Indonesia, we highly recommend reading the following information. During your stay at Hotel Indonesia Kempinski, should you need any medical advice, please call the Operator at ext. 0.
Before you go:
See your doctor and dentist and ensure you are in the best of health before you leave.
Check if your routine vaccinations are up to date.
Arrange a copy of your personal health record to carry when you travel. Include copies of your medication prescriptions.
Take any medicines you require in their original packaging, including any information leaflets, with them clearly labelled with your matching passport name and your doctor’s name. Bring enough medicines to cover the trip, and extra in case of delays, with no more than a 30-day supply.
Please be advised that narcotics and psychotropic drugs are strictly prohibited by the Government of Republic of Indonesia and may result in severe penalties (including the death penalty).
The only vaccine required by international regulations is yellow fever. Proof of vaccination will be required only if you have visited a country in the yellow-fever zone (primarily some parts of Africa and South America) within six days of entering Southeast Asia.
Malaria medication: there is no malaria in the cities of Jakarta and Bali. However, if visiting malarial areas, take chemoprophylaxis a week or more beforehand, as malaria in the country is resistant to the medication chloroquine.
Recommended items for a convenient personal medical kit:
Tap water inside Hotel Indonesia Kempinski is filtered so it is safe to drink. However, it is not safe to drink tap water outside the hotel. To avoid the typical risk of travellers’ diarrhea, we advise you to always drink bottled water or carbonated beverages, provided that the seal is intact. Avoid eating or drinking anything offered by street vendors, including ice cream or ice cubes, which can be made from unsafe water.
To avoid risks from mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue, malaria, Japanese encephalitis, Zika or chikungunya, it is important to regularly apply DEET-based insect repellent every four hours, especially when travelling outdoors.
