In recent days we have seen a number of different tactics employed by various nations to try and contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). All of these involve controlling and / or monitoring the movement of people to varying extents.
What has changed?
- nationality of foreign employees
- details of foreign employees with Indonesian stay permits who are unable to return from overseas
- foreign employees from mainland China holding expired Short Term Permits but are unable to return due to travel restrictions and the activities the company is undertaking to contain the spread of Coronavirus if detected in an employee
All individuals who intend to partake in any international travel should consult the appropriate authorities for guidance on any restrictions before making their trip.
Companies should be aware of changing rules or regulations implemented in any country they operate in, to ensure they meet the requirements of the authorities in managing their workforce in relation to controlling the spread of Coronavirus.
What to expect
All international travel will be disrupted for the foreseeable future.
