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), deed of establishment, include the land-booking letter issued by the Ministry of Agrarian and Spatial Planning.
