    I would like to acknowledge the exceptional service that PT. Cekindo Business International provided to me and my company. I needed to attend a meeting in Jakarta in October 2020 and because of the COVID-19, there were some restrictions with regard to visa application. I made the right decision by consulting with the visa team at Cekindo. The application process was expertly handled. The team ensured the visa was issued well ahead of time for my trip. I would recommend PT. Cekindo Business International to anyone looking for expert help in managing the visa application process.

    When I joined Toaster, it was already working with Cekindo. But it’s quick to see why Toaster chose Cekindo. Cekindo has been very helpful throughout. Toaster Headquarters is based in London.

    As a new business in Indonesia, we started consulting with multiple law firms but quickly narrowed down to only Cekindo. Cekindo was recommended as one of the top firms by multiple sources in the business community. The staff at Cekindo was very responsive to our needs as a new business. The team provided consultancy and assisted our startup firm with initial business setup, licenses and permits, HR/recruitment and market research. One year since our establishment, we still consider Cekindo as our partner.
