Vache, it is not clear if your move is to be covered by a company allowance or you are bearing the full costs. Nor if this is a long or short term stay. Moving here some three years ago the prevailing advice was that the complexities and costs associated with a consignment were such that I limited myself to the maximum amount of accompanied air baggage.

1) a temporary residence permit from the Directorate General of Immigration as evidenced by a Temporary Resident Permit Card for at least 1 (one) year; and
2) temporary work permit from the department in charge of labor as evidenced by a Temporary Worker Permit Card for at least 1 (one) year.
I've shipped 6 large boxes from US to Jakarta 4 months ago. I've used the company "International Parcel Services" (www.ipsparcel.com). You have the option to choose the shipping rates (depending on the weight).

I had to make a statement to the custom official that I am planning to relocate and items shipped for personal use only.
I hope this info will helps.
