Health form at Jakarta Airport
I had to complete a yellow form (for health clearance) at Jakarta Airport. It contained about 100 entries, which have to be written in small letters (as the form is quite small). It asked for information that are clearly irrelevant.
The health authority may not realise that this is an additional form, on top of the immigration and customer form that the traveller has to complete.
Guess what? The customs and health officials did not bother about what is entered in these forms. They did not realise that they are giving a lot of unnecessary hassle to the traveller (on top of security checks). I wonder why officials are so inconsiderate?
