For BOI, the safety of our employees and the fieldwork team is of paramount importance. BOI is currently and closely monitoring the situation across the country to see where it’s considered safe to conduct face-to-face interviews.

We’re happy to report that major areas (like Greater Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Medan, and Makassar) are now considered safe to do face-to-face interviews again. However, we also acknowledge the fluctuated situation in each area, therefore it is necessary to check the status of each area daily. For upcoming projects, BOI will strictly follow the government’s social distancing guidelines to ensure that the interviews are conducted in the safest manner possible. For us, conducting research in a safe way is a top priority. We have listed our newest Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) below.
