Investing in Indonesia is getting faster and easier now. Since January 2016, The Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) has launched a three-hour investment permit service for investors.

The service is part of BKPM’s One-Stop Integrated Service (PTSP) program, which will allow prospective investors with a minimum investment of IDR 100 billion (US$7.33 million) and/or absorb a workforce of more than 1,000 people to have their preliminary permits.

The whole investment license process took only 3 hours at the BKPM office. The investor is supposed to receive eight preliminary permit documents including a principal license, tax ID and work permits (RPTKA and IMTA), deed of establishment, include the land-booking letter issued by the Ministry of Agrarian and Spatial Planning.

The process to get the permits is much shorter now. Before this service launched, the  maintenance  of three principal permission to invest in Indonesia, like  permits investment principles, Deed of Establishment and Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) takes up to 11 days.
