Re: CAIT for Indonesia

A CAIT IS required. A bond WILL be asked for if you go to one of the entry points not approved for yachts. Language is an issue. The jails are bad, you don't want to go there!
For an update on the rules and the approved ports for yachts, speak with Raymond, contact details above.

Re: CAIT for Indonesia

I would not recommend going to West Papua (Irian Jaya) the Indonesians do not want you there.
Overall the Indonesian police were very helpful. However they control West Papua with guns and they do not want westerners seeing what they do. Though West Papua is under better control than Papua New Guinea. We found there was always one Indonesian police officer who spoke some English.

Re: CAIT for Indonesia

I was on the Sail To Indonesia rally last year organised by Raymond, we met with Immigration and Customs in Saumlaki. The head of customs was a really helpful guy and he explaindd how they were trying to make things simpler for yachties coming into Indonesia also they were cleaning up their act regarding officers who wanted to earn some extra cash or accept gifts from your boat, gave us his phone number/email and told us to report anybody that asked for anything, we felt that they were really trying to improve their image and sort problems out with the CAIT/bond. As we went with a rally we didn't have to put up a bond, Raymond vouches for you.

Haven't got an exact a swer for you i'm afraid just thought i'd pass on recent experience. Raymond was the organiser of Sail To Indonesia but think he might have left that outfit part way through due to some disagreement but not 100 % on that.

Re: CAIT for Indonesia

Attached is information and contacts for applying for the national CIAT and transiting to or via Nongsa Pt on Batam Is and application procedure for the Green Book in Singapore.

Do note that the validity of the CAIT is linked to the expiry date of your boats insurance and registration. Don't get stuck paying for this when you only have a month left on these validities.

Re: CAIT for Indonesia

National Cait ? Things may have changed and they do even in Indonesia albeit slowly, but when l had a green book in 2012, it was strictly for the Riau Archipelago and basically only for Singapore boats. It was indeed linked to your insurance. Has there been a change ? Once again Sail Maluku will handle all CAIT custom bond etc around August/ Sept 2014. G'day to Clement and all the other expats at Nongsa. malukusailor@gmail.com
