In order to qualify for a duty-free clearance of household goods, the shipment must arrive in Indonesia within three months of the shipper’s arrival in Indonesia with the approval to process a work permit. If you have two shipments, the second shipmentment must arrive within 3 months of the arrival of the first shipment. If later than that, the shipment could be rejected.

Indonesia is a difficult country when it comes to customs clearance process. Normal customs clearance takes from 6 to 7 working days for Seafreight, and 2 to 3 working days for Air freight, providing the documentation is in order.
The average time to obtain documentation certifying valid work and residence permits can range from 4-6 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 shipment boxes which are marked with any name but the shippers. This could delay or jeopardize clearance.
