Indonesia, Batam Island: Temporary Import Permit (PIB) now required to check in at Nongsa Point Marina

Following the impounding of several Singapore based yachts on a rally to the Anambas Islands procedures for obtaining a Temporary Import Permit (PIB) at Nongsa Point, Batam have been revised.

In addition to a CAIT and, if appropriate, a Social Visa, it is now necessary to pay USD 150 for the TIP. You apparently cannot check in at Nongsa without it. Rumours that things are being made easier in Indonesia appear to be somewhat off the mark.

The following is the text of an email from Nongsa detailing the procedure:

Update 3 July, 2014
The first boat to try the new TIP system at Nongsa Point has reported that agreement between the marina and the customs on the procedures has not yet been reached. The marina is advising that cruising boats do not clear in there. Apparently clearance in at Belitung is OK but a full visa in advance is required (no Visa on Arrival).

Yachts intending just to visit Nongsa Point and not cruise in Indonesia (generally Singapore based boats using the Green Book) are not affected by the TIP requirement.
