Indonesia can be a difficult destination for customs clearance. Normal customs clearance takes from 5 to 7 working days, if requested
documentation is in order. If duties have been assessed, allow 2 to 3 days for additional clearance time after duty payment to Indonesian Customs Cashier.
The average time to obtain documentation certifying valid work and residence permits is about four (4) to six (6) weeks after arrival of the shipper in Indonesia with a one-year visa from the Indonesian Embassy or Consulate.
It is recommended that the shipper prepare a list of titles and authors of books/publications to allow customs the option of cursory inspection. It is unwise to include any others shipment boxes which are marked with any name but the shippers. This could jeopardize clearance.
