It seems the difficulty all along has been jointly with Indonesian interests in the marine pleasure market who in lobbying against a perceived threat, have been a little over enthusiastic in promoting their 'spin'. And, with Indonesian authorities who want to pass the buck to privateers rather than make direct statements when it comes to interpretation of policy.

We are now back where we were in June with a reasonable belief that the levy is imposed on boats which are being temporarily imported for commercial reasons (imagine the cost of taking a yacht into the country for exhibition at a boat show).

Thanks Jeanne and Richard for your assistance...I am still hopeful of receiving an official statement of policy from the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra, Australia.

Advice to yachts visiting Indonesia must carry warnings to ensure you apply early for your CAIT and insist on detailed official receipts for any money paid.

It must be said in conclusion that the storm which rages throughout the marine sector regarding this issue, has largely had no practical effect upon visiting yotties. Reports from Indonesia continue to to show the officials as pleasant, efficient and mainly friendly...and that clearing in and out is a relatively painless and inexpensive affair.

Let us hope the rumours now can be put to rest.

If Cruisers are hesitant about applying for the CAIT through unknown agents - the one place is the Bali International Marina that has a good reputation for this service - address :-

Bali Marina, Benoa Harbor, Bali - Indonesia

Tel: +(62) 361 723-601, 723-602, Fax: +(62) 361 723-604

Contact Person: Haryo (0812-384-2037)




We are in correspondence with Indonesian Bureau of Customs in Jakarta on the far more pressing separate issue of the imposition of an import duty on visiting yachts - awaiting clarification as to exactly who /what shall be effected by the tariff.
