Customs and Duty Free Allowances when Entering Indonesia

The following goods may be imported into Indonesia by persons over 18 years of age without incurring customs duty:

Two hundred cigarettes or 50 cigars or 100g of tobacco.

One litre of liquor.

A reasonable quantity of perfume.

Gifts up to a value of US$250 per person or US$1,000 per family. 

Note: Cameras must be declared on arrival. Video cameras, portable radios, tape recorders, binoculars and sport equipment may be imported provided exported on departure. Films, tapes, CD/DVDs, records and computer software must be screened by the censor board. There are also restrictions on fruits and animal, fish and plant products.

It would also be of great help if you seek advice from those who are familiar with Indonesian laws if you're importing rare flowers of any kind. You can also do a little research and check the net for info on this. However, bear in mind that online information should not act as substitutes for professional legal advice.


Prohibited Imports: Cordless telephones, Chinese medicines or printings, pornography, and non-prescription drugs.


Please note:

All narcotics are illegal in Indonesia. The use, sale or purchase of narcotics results in long prison terms, huge fines and death, in some cases. Once caught, you are immediately placed in detention until trial, and the sentences are stiff, as demonstrated by Westerners currently serving sentences as long as 30 years for possession of marijuana.

Please double check at government websites.
