Drugs

In Indonesia – as in many other countries – there are very strict laws against illegal drugs.
For this reason, a Medical passport or a statement from your doctor is not sufficient for medicines that can be used as (illegal) drugs (for example sleeping medication, some painkillers and tranquilizers, such as oxazepam and Ritalin). If you need to take this medication with you, you need a legalised statement from your doctor and your government. Ask your pharmacy or GP which medication could be considered illegal drugs and check with the closest Indonesian embassy if you want to take this medication with you to Indonesia.
