Latest COVID-19 Regulations Updates in the Netherlands

Updated 13-10-2021

Status registratie via PeduliLindungi App

Vorige week hebben de Indonesische autoriteiten aangeven dat het voor buitenlanders mogelijk is om hun in het buitenland gekregen vaccinaties te registreren in de PeduliLindungi app. De ambassade heeft de afgelopen dagen veel vragen ontvangen van Nederlanders over de registratie en dan vooral over de melding dat de verificatie status bij de ambassade kan worden nagegaan. We willen benadrukken dat de ambassade niet is geïnformeerd over de ontwikkelde registratieprocedure, ook is de verwachting dat het voor ons niet mogelijk is om de verificatie uit te voeren. Vanuit de EU zijn de Indonesische autoriteiten opnieuw gevraagd om tot oplossingen te komen voor de problemen die buitenlanders ondervinden bij het registreren in de PeduliLindungi app.
