    Indonesia to cut import duty exemption to $3 😡😡

    AliExpress always come via Kantor Pos and the demand is always 20,000rp from the postman. If you order from Amazon then they pre-calculate customs fees etc. and there is nothing to pay.

    I am shock, they want to DEPORTASI my daughter

    I suggest you speak to the Indonesian Embassy in Ottawa and ask them to clarify as the language is not clear. Unfortunately most Indonesian laws are ambiguous, poorly drafted and lacking in clarity. Anyway, no it is obviously not the Spanish embassy's job to check if you have the right kind of...

    Indonesia to cut import duty exemption to $3 😡😡

    It's definitely 18.25%, not 17.5%, because you apply BM first. this is clarified here. Unfortunately I do not have anything official about the new tariff, and I find the Indonesian media to be unreliable, so would not 100% bet on anything.

    OCBC account opening - reference letter

    OCBC account opening - reference letter

    well I eventually got it done in the third branch. You have to kind of be aware of what they want, i.e. more than what they say online, which is just KITAS/KITAP - I had a surat domisili, and they asked lots of questions like global net worth. Also it's probably best not to tell them you want to...
