Okay ... a shocking new rules / regulation about tax and import duties from Indonesia Government.

No matter which way you take .. using airplane, boat or on foot ... you can't run from this new regulation.. i think this is a very2 bad news....


Indonesia imposes import duties  

INDONESIA'S Ministry of Finance is slapping import duties on goods brought in by passengers, air crew and border crossers as well as couriered or mailed parcels, effective January 1, 2011.

Ministry of Finance spokesman Yudi Pramadi said individual travellers would be allowed to carry personal duty-free items worth US$250. Families are allowed up to US$1,000. For air crew, it would be US$50 per person, while shipped parcels would have a duty-free limit of US$50.

Border crossers passing Indonesia-Malaysia borders are limited to RM600 (US$190) per person; Indonesia-Papua New Guinea, US$300; and Indonesia-The Philippines, US$250. Import duties, however, will not be applied to goods brought into the country of origin. But it remains unclear how customs officials will handle travellers with personal items that exceed the stated value.

The new ruling came as a surprise to the tourism industry and other authorities. Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association chairman Yanti Sukamdani said: "I have not heard of its (the ministry) plan and suddenly, it is there without any explanation, let alone any consultation with the industry."

I hope not...

Things to take a note if you a bringing stuff back to Indonesia to avoid trouble because of the new import duties tax $250 Limit.
1. Expect a longer que in the Airport ...
2. Don't bring anything that looks expensive and new ....
3. Tell your family and friends in advance regarding this new tax regulation so that they can't dream about the iPhone, iPad and any other stuff. you can do it by sharing this post on the facebook ... just click share and you are free from the request...
4. Don't forget to bring a pen to fill in the declaration form.
5. If they insisted that you need to pay for the tax ... and if the amount is little... just pay it don't argue ... and ask for receipt.
6. Always keep the goods receipts with you .,, so that you have a proff if they insisted that your goods is more than $250.
7. Prepare you handphone to do recoding, take photos,etc if you are treated unfairly.  take the snapshot of the officer, your goods..be vigilance.
