JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Indonesians will enjoy free fiscal fee overseas travel starting next year, a senior official said. Director of Public Service and Information of the Tax Directorate General M Iqbal Alamsyah said Tuesday his office starting January 2011 would give a free fiscal facility for people aged 21 and over who did not have a tax ID number.
Previously from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2010, free fiscal facility was only applicable to with a tax ID number. Iqbal said the new policy was part of the government’s program to make it easier for those going abroad for various purposes such as education or medical check up.
Up till now, fiscal fee traveling abroad costs Rp 2.5 million for those traveling by air, and Rp 1 million traveling by sea.
