PROHIBITED AND RESTRICED GOODS
Firearms, ammunitions and explosives, obscene literature, photographs and films, politically “undesirable” literature, foodstuffs and alcohol, toy guns and air guns, motor vehicles, books of a political or religious nature, which may be offensive to Indonesia, Indonesians or Islam may be refused entry
A physical examination of cargo by customs is required. Should prohibited articles be found (see above), should new items be found (see customs regulations below) or should the shipper’s documentation be inadequate, additional charges will be applied. These charges will be invoiced to the shipper and collected prior to delivery.
HO– USEHOLD GOODS (“HHG”)
Only used household goods are permitted duty free entry. Any items in original factory cartons are classified as new and may be dutiable. Only one each of the major household appliances or electronics is allowed. Only a reasonable number of CD’s, DVD’s, VCD’s, Video Tapes or Laser Discs are allowed. However, these items are subject to censorship and applicable fees.
A residence card (KITAS) and work permit (IKTA) must be issued and valid for a minimum of 52 weeks for duty free shipment. Documentation is required for the shipper/consignee only.
Used HHG must arrive in Indonesia within 6 months of the residence card (KITAS) issue date.
Car and motorcycle imports are prohibited with the exception of those for shippers with full diplomatic status.
An import license is required to import a pet. Pets are also subject to customs duties and taxes. The importer of a pet does not require a work permit or residence card (KITAS). Please fax us for further details.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF DUTY FREE IMPORTS
One shipment by air or by sea. However, if there is an air and sea shipment we can clear both as duty free, providing the air shipment is received and cleared first. This is because customs stamp the importers passport at the sea terminal but not at the air terminal.
ORIGIN & DOOR TO DOOR RATES
Due to extreme fluctuations in density caused by rattan furniture, wicker baskets etc. it has become impossible to quote fixed origin rates. It is also extremely risky for our overseas correspondences to attempt to construct door-to-port rates according to density. Please fax us for details.
RETURNING INDONESIAN NATIONALS
The following are customs needs on a duty free basis for shipment to Indonesia.
· Original Passport
· Letter from the Indonesian Embassy in host country stating the clients arrival date in country, the date of return to Indonesia and that your shipper is bringing a shipment of household goods back to Indonesia.
· Assignment and re-assignment letter – normally provided by the employer or a letter from school/university
· A packing list certified by the Indonesian Embassy at point of origin.
· For shipments to be free of duty, your shipper has to have been overseas for a minimum of 12 months.
Please note that a returning Indonesian citizen complying with the above documentation is entitled to one duty free shipment by sea or by air. However, if there is an air and sea shipment we can clear both as duty free, providing the air shipment is received and cleared first and providing both shipments have complied with all required documentation at origin as listed above.
