A. Import License Process – A Lengthy & Multi-step Process

Before obtaining an Import License or Permit, the product holder must establish a company. The time it takes to incorporate a foreign company can range from weeks to months. The time frame is determined by how well its company documents are prepared for submission to Indonesian authorities. A Foreign Company must also submit an investment plan with a minimum paid-up capital of IDR 10 billion as part of this process.

Only after these milestones have been met can a company apply for import permits and licenses, which could take another 3 – 6 months. To finally trade in Indonesia, a product holder should allow time for Product Registration with BPOM as well as other licenses such as Halal License and SNI license.
