Liputan6.com, Jakarta – The PeduliLindung application is a travel requirement on land, sea, air, and rail transportation starting today, August 28, 2021. This means that every bus, ship, train and plane passenger is required to use this application when using these modes of transportation.
Previously, the PeduliLindung application had become a travel requirement for air transportation modes since last July 2021. The Ministry of Transportation has also issued Circular Letter Number 62 of 2021 concerning Guidelines for the Implementation of Domestic Travel by Air Transportation During the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi has also asked all operators or operators of transportation facilities and infrastructure managed by the Ministry of Transportation, BUMN, and the private sector to prepare themselves, both in terms of systems and procedures, so that the implementation of the PeduliLindung application can run well.
“Socialization must be carried out properly, so that there are no people who are confused by this new rule. At the beginning of the application of this application, I asked the officers who were at the transportation nodes to help people who use transportation services who are still not aware of this regulation,” said the Minister of Transportation.
This PeduliLindung application has several benefits, including being able to help officers ensure the process of digitally validating health documents at transportation nodes. So it can be safer, faster, easier and simpler.
“As well as minimizing physical contact because you don’t have to carry paper documents for Covid-19 test results or vaccination cards, and it’s also safer from falsification of swab test results (PCR / Antigen),” he said.
