March 8, 2018

The maritime industry plays an important and strategic role in the national development, especially in a maritime country like Indonesia. To protect national sovereignty, the Indonesian Maritime Law requires any domestic sea transportation activities to be performed by national sea transportation companies using Indonesian flagged vessels and crewed by Indonesian citizens. However, the Government has given a possibility for certain foreign flagged vessels to sail in Indonesian waters. What kind of vessels categorized as the exempted vessels? How to obtain and use the permit?
