EMBASSIES & CONSULATES IN JAKARTA

Before You Go

Health Insurance

Even if you are fit and healthy, don't travel without sufficient health insurance – accidents do happen. If you're uninsured, emergency evacuation is expensive – bills of more than US$100,000 are not uncommon.

Find out in advance if your insurance plan will make payments directly to providers or reimburse you later for overseas health expenditures.

If you're planning on scuba-diving, make sure your insurance covers that or get specialist dive insurance.

 

Malaria

The risk of contracting malaria is greatest in rural areas of Indonesia, although only Java's main cities, Bali and the Gilis are considered malaria-free.

Two strategies should be combined to prevent malaria: mosquito avoidance and antimalarial medications.

Most people who contract malaria are taking inadequate precautions or no antimalarial medication.

Travellers are advised to prevent mosquito bites by taking these steps:

  • Use a DEET-containing insect repellent on exposed skin. Insect sprays and lotions such as Off are only reliably found in the areas with the least risk of malaria (eg Bali). Bring small containers of highly concentrated DEET repellent from your home country and follow the label directions carefully.
  • Sleep under a mosquito net impregnated with permethrin.
  • Choose accommodation with screens and fans (if not air-conditioned).
  • Impregnate clothing with permethrin in high-risk areas.
  • Wear long sleeves and trousers in light colours.
  • Use mosquito coils.
  • Spray your room with insect repellent before going out for your evening meal.

There are a variety of medications available (note that Artesunate and Chloroquine are ineffective):

  • DoxycyclineThis daily tablet is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that has the added benefit of helping to prevent a variety of tropical diseases. Potential side effects include a tendency to sunburn, thrush in women, indigestion, heartburn, nausea and interference with contraceptive pills.
  • Lariam (Mefloquine)Lariam has received much bad press, some of it justified, some not. This weekly tablet suits many people. Serious side effects are rare but include depression, anxiety, psychosis and having fits.
  • MalaroneA combination of Atovaquone and Proguanil. Side effects, most commonly nausea and headache, are uncommon and mild. It is the best tablet for scuba divers and for those on short trips to high-risk areas. It must be taken for one week after leaving the risk area

 

There are five basic cultures of the indigenous people of the Austronesian family in Kalimantan or Kalimantan Ethnic People, namely Dayak, Malay, Banjar, Kutai and Paser. The Malays occupy the Karimata island and the coast of West Kalimantan, Sarawak, Brunei to the coast of Sabah. The Banjar tribe occupies the area of ​​South Kalimantan and parts of Central Kalimantan and East Kalimantan. The Kutai and Paser tribes occupy the East Kalimantan region. While the Dayaks occupy the interior of Kalimantan. The Dayak  is a loose term for over 200 riverine and hill-dwelling ethnic subgroups, located principally in the central and southern interior of Borneo, each with its own dialect, customs, laws, territory and culture, although common distinguishing traits are readily identifiable. The Dayak were animist in belief, however, many converted to Islam and since the 19th century there has been mass conversion to Christianity.Today most Dayak still follow their ancient animistic traditions, but often state to belong to one of the 6 recognized religions in Indonesia.

Local people speak less English. It would be better if accompanied by your Guide. It will be easily to speak with local people.  The local language is called Bahasa and is spoken and understood widely despite the fact that they have about more than 100 native dialects.

As mentioned, although English is widely spoken, it doesn’t hurt to learn a few words to help you out.
