PeduliLindungi App Accommodates Foreign-Issued Vaccination Cardholders
Date 14 September 2021
Ministry of Health has launched a new feature in the PeduliLindungi Covid-19 tracking application to facilitate verification for Indonesian citizens (WNI) and foreign nationals (WNA) who receive COVID-19 vaccinations abroad.
“Today, we will introduce how Indonesian citizens and then, later on, foreigners can access PeduliLindungi application even though their vaccine certificates are not obtained in Indonesia,” said Chief Digital Transformation Officer of Ministry of Health Setiaji in a press statement, Tuesday (14/09).
According to Setiaji, the foreign-issued vaccination cardholders can register to vaccineln.dto.kemkes.go.id for verification.
The procedure for obtaining the Non-Indonesia Vaccination Verification (VNI) Card is as follows:
Foreigners or Indonesian citizens who are vaccinated abroad can access the vaccineln.dto.kemkes.go.id page, then register themselves and apply for certificate verification.
Ministry of Health will verify the vaccination data for Indonesian citizens, while for foreigners, the data will be verified by their respective embassies.
Verification results will be sent via e-mail. “After being verified, the results will be confirmed via email registered on the website, approximately in a maximum of three working days,” he said.
The Indonesian citizens or foreigners concerned must register and log into the PeduliLindungi application to check the vaccination status and obtain a VNI verification card.
“It must be claimed, go to PeduliLindungi to complete or claim a vaccine certificate. It will appear after the data is verified,” said Setiaji.
Foreigners and Indonesian citizens concerned can use the PeduliLindungi application to scan QR codes at various public places, such as malls, airports, and others.
Setiaji expressed hope that with this feature, the foreign-issued vaccination cardholders can use the PeduliLindungi application to access public facilities. (UN) (FI/MMB)
