COVID-19 Protocol for Dutch Students

Are you a student of a Dutch institution doing an exchange or an internship in Indonesia? Please read this information carefully!

Dear Dutch students in Indonesia

You have probably heard that The European Union will close its borders to all non-essential travel due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). EU citizens however can return home.

We have heard from many of you already, asking us if it’s best to go home or not. In the end the choice is yours, but currently – with all rapidly changing developments – it seems best to advise you to return home to the Netherlands.

For the latest news from the Netherlands embassy with regards to COVID-19, keep following their Facebook page or Twitter account.

If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us via   or via WhatsApp +62 811 9404 146. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs can also be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week in various ways

Do not forget to inform your university (both in Indonesia and in the Netherlands), possibly they already advised you to return. If you know other students from the Netherlands, please pass them this message.


Best regards,

Inty Dienasari
