Checks are carried out to ensure tourists have been vaccinated and have undergone a Covid-19 test, either through a rapid antigen test or a swab test with negative results.
If all the requirements are met, then the tourism bus is allowed to enter Yogyakarta and even directed to the designated parking location. If they do not meet the requirements, tourists are automatically not allowed to enter the city of Yogyakarta.
