    Can't Get COVID Vaccine

    I am am a WNA with KITAS through marriage residing in a small village outside of Demak, Central Java. I have tried four different places to get a COVID vaccine but have turned away at each location. Most places here around Demak have no idea how to give a foreigner a vaccine. They keep telling me that I need a KITAS with a NIK in order to be entered into the computer and get a vaccine. From my understanding foreigners on KITAS cannot get a KTP.

    How are others getting their COVID vaccines? Is the the problem all KITAS holders are having here in Indonesia? From my understanding the Indonesian government has made it mandatory for all residents in Indonesia to get the vaccine. I have been trying for months now but can't get it. Does anyone know how I am supposed to go about this?

    Thanks

    (1) You need both : the KITAS from Immigration + the NIK from Kantor Catatan Sipil (which is in the SKKT) .

    (2) Yes , you are right . But KITAS holders are required to get a SKTT (Surat Keterangan Tempat Tinggal) , an identity card similar to the KTP . The SKTT also comes with the NIK .

      Thank you Marcus, I do have a Surat Keterangan Tinggal Sementara for the village that we are living in. However there is no card and there is no NIK on the letter. Should I go to another higher level government agency to get the card?

        Besides registering for the vaccine online (see below) , usually you can also register at the places where they are vaccinating people (big hospitals , Kantor Kelurahan , ..) .

          Yes . Usually you need to go to Kantor Cacatan Sipil (just now it may be done online - I got mine recently , uploading documents online and finally going there to get it) .

          My city required:
          - Signed Form
          - Sponsor's letter
          - Sponsor's KTP/KK
          - KITAS/e-ITAS
          - KITAS/e-ITAS stamp in the passport
          - passport
          - Photo
          - Surat Domisili
          - Marriage Certificate
          - Police's STM/Surat Tanda Melapor

            Marcus, thanks that is very helpful. I will get this taken care of. Me being so far away from any expat community I really appreciate your help. There is no one I can talk to here that know how to do these things.

              Look, the first thing to consider is that different locations have different restrictions for activities going around in the country or worldwide. Just consider the pandemic, for example, when the whole world was devising different plans to tackle it. And suddenly, each country was in a race to protect their citizens in the best way as well as look for the available vaccines and buy them in bulk. The problem with most cases is that foreigners living in a country do not abide by and set rules for the general public. It is also because foreigners are a liability and an asset to the country they are residing in, and thus they have to be formalized to receive vaccines.
              Your situation is a similar one for which I am going to give you the best advice. Rather than looking for answers and suggestions here, try to contact a government body responsible for COVID tackling and vaccination. This gives you an edge over the others in a way that you can get the best and necessary information regarding how to get your dose. Moreover, it will be good if you visit these places of information physically. In such a way, gathering info and receiving your requirements will become easy!

                  (b) You say here that in the app you have to Go to "Vaccine Registration" but I can't see that on the app.

                  (a) I suggest you to go & try other vaccination places .

                  (b) No , I just copied / pasted an article from https://newssetup.kontan.co.id/news/...dungi?page=all​ . This app was updated and now there is no "Vaccine Registration" , I think they changed their procedures . I guess you don't need the "vaccine ticket" (a kind of authorization for getting the vaccine) anymore (it was available in the app before) .

                  Search in the internet for the places they are now vaccinating . Here in my city (when I got the booster/3rd shot) there were many Puskesmas (local Government clinics) providing the booster (each clinic may have different vaccine brands , schedule , registration , ..) . When making the search specify if you want the booster or the 2 basic vaccines (for children , or for people older people. , or ..) because the Puskesmas I selected was providing vaccines only for older people .

                    Now I think you had both vaccines and the booster as well.
