These new regulations include:
Multiple HS Codes from the following categories have been prohibited for export from Indonesia (Article 2, Pemendag No 18 Tahun 2021):
Please note that these may not be blanket prohibitions. Please refer to the full list of HS codes in Pemendag No 18 Tahun 2021 http://jdih.kemendag.go.id/peraturan/detail/2165/2
Pemendag No 19 Tahun 2021 contains the list of non-prohibited items for export which can be found here http://jdih.kemendag.go.id/peraturan/detail/2166/2
You can also check if your product category is eligible for export by entering its HS Code here https://insw.go.id/intr. Please note that the HS Code you key in must contain only numbers, e.g. no hyphens, fullstops, or spaces to separate the numbers.
The government of Indonesia is instating additional protections for imports into Indonesia, particularly for strategic commodities related to corruption prevention.

Regulations for personal shipments, also known as shipments to consignees as individuals, have not changed much save for the maximum quantity of clothing and fashion accessories allowed per consignee per parcel being reduced from 10 pieces to 5 pieces. Please also note that this is in addition to the Import Duty Safeguard (BMTP) duties applied on fashion imports as highlighted in our BMTP Indonesia customs clearance update.
B2C or personal imports still use Indonesia’s current de minimis threshold of USD 3 to USD 1,500 along with the other maximum quantity for imports as shown in the table below. Taxes and duties are the same per HS code and will follow INSW guidelines.
