Information for Indonesian exporters and importers.

Businesses now only require a Business Identification Number (NIB) to begin their import or export activities. Obtaining a NIB can be done through the Online Single Submission (OSS) system. Previously, businesses had to apply for one of three types of import licenses: API-U (General Import License); API-P (Producer Import License); and a Limited Import License, also known as API Terbatas (API-T). The NIB now doubles up as an API-U, API-P, and an API-T. Further, exporters also only require a NIB.

However, businesses importing certain types of goods will require an additional import license from the MoT. Depending on the company’s circumstances, this could be for:

  • An importer registration license;
  • An import approval license for producer importers (companies that import materials used in the manufacture of their own products); or
  • A general import approval license.

Similarly, businesses exporting certain types of goods will require an additional export license from the MoT, which could be:

  • An export registration license; or
  • An export approval license;
  • Importing to Indonesia.

Before importing or exporting goods, businesses should check with the Indonesian Harmonization System (HS) Code, which is used to classify every category of products. This is because specific products may require additional licenses or registration.

Furthermore, the HS code is one of the factors that determine the rate of taxes and customs duties, as well as any specific import/export requirements for that product.

  • Bill of lading, in three endorsed originals and four non-negotiable copies.
  • Certificate of insurance
  • Packing list.
  • NIB/import permit; and
  • Customs import declaration.

The amount of duty depends on the type of goods imported, based on the product’s HS code.

An import sales tax is imposed on imports at the point of entry (except for those goods considered essential by the government) at rates within the range of five and 30 percent.

Further, Indonesia is committed to the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement within which duties on imports from the member countries generally range from zero to five percent, except for products specified on exclusion lists.
