Ramadan and Idul Fitri 2018 in Indonesia

Kindly be informed that the Ramadan, Muslim fasting month will commence today, Wednesday 16 May and end on Friday 14 June 2018.

During the Ramadan most offices in Indonesia adjust their office hours.

Hari Raya Idul Fitri, the post Ramadan festival will be from 15 to 18 June 2018 during which days our agent office in Indonesia will be closed.

Before that, Thursday May 29 2018 (Vesak day) and Tuesday June 1 (Pancasila / constitution day) are also national holidays in Indonesia.

Carefully note:

As millions of people travel during the holidays there will be trucking restrictions around the big cities 3-4 days before and after Idul Fitri.

Usually trucking companies and seaport warehouses close a few days before the holidays and all only return slowly to normal during the week after.

Although the customs office will be open, clearance and trucking might be delayed and costs might increase due to low supply of available trucks.

Consequently, extra storage and demurrage might occur so please carefully consider this when shipping to Indonesia.
