Business Practices

Business dealings generally must be conducted through a local agent and tend to be slow. Visiting cards are widely used and most business is conducted in English. Generally speaking, it is best to use the right hand in receiving or eating. Although hand shaking is a common practice, avoid hearty handshakes and other physical contact. Do not show the soles of your shoes when seated. Business office hours are 0900-1700 Monday to Friday while Government office hours are 0800-1430 Monday to Thursday and 0800-1200 Friday.

Crime

Street crime, including pickpocketing, is a concern. Most street crime in Jakarta is opportunistic, and consists heavily of pickpocketing or snatching valuables and running away. Employ the security measures considered prudent in any large city. Thieves on motorcycles commit ?snatch thefts? where they speed up to a victim from behind and snatch a purse, bag or cellular telephone. Take particular care to safeguard your passport and credit/ATM cards. There are regular reports of credit-card theft in which shop employees have copied card details. Do not lose sight of your credit card during transactions. Keep car doors locked and windows rolled up at all times. The number of beggars and vagrants at intersections has increased, and while such individuals are normally harmless, there have been reports of cars being scratched or dented, if you do not give them money. Thefts have also occurred when people rolled down their windows to give money. Do not compromise your safety by rolling down your window to give money, or to look at items vendors may be selling. One common robbery technique involves puncturing automobile tires so that the occupants of the car can be robbed while changing the tire. In preparing for longer journeys, notify friends of travel plans and contact them on arrival; and when possible travel in convoy. Criminals operate on public transport. There are many reports of extortionate fares or robberies by unlicensed airport taxi drivers. Their vehicles are usually in poor condition, are unmetered, and do not have a dashboard identity licence. When taking a taxi, use one from a reputable firm, preferably booked by phone or arranged by your hotel, or booked by a registered taxi firm inside the airport. Some thieves befriend tourists, slip drugs in their drinks, then rob them. Penalties for illegal drug importation and use are severe and can include the death penalty. Ensure no one else has access to your luggage. Poaching and illegal logging are serious problems in Indonesian parks and nature preserves. Those involved in these activities have sometimes threatened tourists and others in order to discourage travel to these areas. Ensure that your hotel, apartment or house has 24-hour guard coverage. If you live in an apartment or house, invest in a residential alarm system. Note that gambling is illegal in Indonesia.

Hotels

International hotels are found only in major towns and tourist areas. Several of these have business centers with a variety of services. Resort hotels on Bali vary from international class, luxury hotels to beach cottages along the shore. Housing costs have declined, but vary widely. Depending on the size and location of the residence, one can expect to pay from US$1,000-$5,000 per month for an expatriate standard house or a luxury apartment in Jakarta. Rent is usually paid in U.S. dollars, and leases are typically paid two years in advance.

Communications

Telephone IDD is available to main cities. The country code is 62, followed by 22 for Bandung, 21 for Jakarta, 61 for Medan, and 31 for Surabaya. The outgoing international code is 00. Telephone services vary between areas in Jakarta. They depend largely on the local telephone exchange's capacity to handle traffic. Phone service is good along the main business thoroughfares and the newer residential areas, which are served by fiber optic trunk lines. In the older residential areas service is less reliable, extra phone lines can be costly, and obtaining them can be time consuming. International direct dial (IDD) lines are available and will allow connection to an AT&T, Sprint or MCI operator, but rates are high. Cellular services are readily available but the quality of service varies. Express Delivery & Airlines: DHL and Federal Express operate in the major cities; incoming parcels are subject to delay at customs. A number of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) operate in Indonesia. The following are some of the largest and most established ISPs in Indonesia are IBM Internet Connection PT, CBNnet PT, RADNET PT, Idola PT. Aplikanusa Lintasarta.

Electricity

is generally 110 volts AC, 50Hz, but 220 volts AC, 50Hz, in some areas, including Jakarta. 220-volt supplies are gradually superseding 110-volt supplies. Electricity Generally 220 volts AC, 50Hz, but 110 volts AC, 50Hz, in some rural areas.

Food And Dining

The staple diet for most Indonesians is rice (nasi), which is replaced on some islands with corn, sago, cassava and sweet potatoes. Indonesia?s spices make its local cuisine unique. Almost every type of international cuisine is available in Jakarta, the most popular being Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese and Korean. Indonesians like their food highly spiced and the visitor should always bear this in mind. In particular, look out for the tiny and fiery hot, red and green peppers often included in salads and vegetable dishes. Seafood is excellent and features highly on menus (with salt and freshwater fish, lobsters, oysters, prawns, shrimp, squid, shark and crab all available). Coconuts, which are found everywhere, are often used for cooking. Vegetables and fresh fruit, such as bananas, papaya, pineapple and oranges, are available throughout the year; some tropical fruits such as mango, watermelon and papaya are seasonal. A feature of Jakarta are the many warungs (street stalls). Each specializes in its own dish or drink, but travelers are probably best advised not to try them without the advice of an Indonesian resident. There are restaurants in the hotels which, along with many others, serve European, Chinese and Indian food. National specialties
? Campur, nasi uduk and rasirames (rice dishes).
? Rijstafel (a Dutch concoction consisting of a variety of meats, fish, vegetables and curries).
? Sate (chunks of beef, fish, pork, chicken or lamb cooked on hot coals and dipped in peanut sauce).
? Sate ajam (broiled, skewered marinated chicken).
? Ajam ungkap (Central Java; deep-fried, marinated chicken).
? Sate lileh (Bali; broiled, skewered fish sticks).
? Ikan acar kuning (Jakarta; lightly marinated fried fish served in a sauce of pickled spices and palm sugar).
? Soto (a soup dish with dumpling, chicken and vegetables).
? Gado-gado (Java; a salad of raw and cooked vegetables with peanut and coconut milk sauce).
? Babi guling (Bali; roast suckling pig).
? Opor ajam (boiled chicken in coconut milk and light spices). National drinks
? Brem (rice wine).
? Tuak (a famously potent local brew).
Tipping:
Tipping is normal and 10 per cent is customary, except where a service charge is included in the bill. Taxi fees should be rounded up to the nearest number. Small change is rarely given and visitors should carry a supply of their own.
Nightlife
Jakarta nightclubs feature international singers and bands and are open until 0400 during weekends. Jakarta has loads of cinemas and some English-language and subtitled films are shown. There are also casinos, and theaters providing cultural performances. Dancing is considered an art, encouraged and practiced from very early childhood. The extensive repertoire is based on ancient legends and stories from religious epics. Performances are given in village halls and squares, and also in many of the leading hotels by professional touring groups. The dances vary enormously, both in style and number of performers. Some of the more notable are the Legong, a slow, graceful dance of divine nymphs; the Baris, a fast moving, noisy demonstration of male, warlike behavior; and the Jauk, a riveting solo offering by a masked and richly costumed demon. Many consider the most dramatic of all to be the famous Cecak (Monkey Dance) which calls for 100 or more very agile participants. Many of the larger hotels, particularly in Bali, put on dance shows accompanied by the uniquely Indonesian Gamelan Orchestras. Throughout the year, many local moonlight festivals occur; tourists should check locally. Indonesian puppets are world famous and shows for visitors are staged in various locations.

Visitors are advised against all travel to Aceh, except for those involved in post-tsunami humanitarian and reconstruction work or in the Aceh Monitoring Mission. Parts of Aceh remain affected by a long running internal conflict. Two aid workers were shot and injured in separate shooting attacks on 23 June and 7 July respectively. There is a risk that further incidents may occur. Visitors should exercise caution when traveling to remote areas.
Visitors are advised against travel to Maluku Province, especially Ambon, and some parts of Central Sulawesi Province, which are experiencing civilian unrest.
On 1 October 2005, three walk-in suicide bombers killed 20 people and injured a further 90 in Central Kuta and Jimbaran beach in Bali.
There remains a high threat from terrorism in Indonesia. Attacks could occur at any time, anywhere in Indonesia and are likely to be directed against locations and buildings frequented by foreigners.
Pedestrians, including those on footbridges, and foreigners in vehicles, particularly in slow and stationary traffic and at entrances to toll roads and car parks, have been mentioned as desirable targets.
If you intend to travel to Indonesia in the immediate future or you are already in Indonesia, you should exercise caution at all times. You should review thoroughly the latest information on the situation, including media reports; keep in close contact with your tour operator; and follow any advice from local authorities. If you are traveling to, or resident in Indonesia, you should ensure that you are comfortable with, and regularly review, your and your family?s security arrangements.
The Indonesian Police are on a state of high alert and have deployed extra personnel to high profile and sensitive locations including, but not limited to, embassies, consulates outside Jakarta and hotels.
Visitors should exercise caution when visiting places of worship and other locations known to be frequented by foreigners or where large groups of people gather.
Terrorists have shown in previous attacks, like the attack on the Australian Embassy, the Marriott Hotel, Jakarta and both the Bali bombings, that they have the means and the motivation to carry out successful attacks.
There have been outbreaks of Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) amongst poultry and a small number of pig farms in 23 of Indonesia's 33 provinces, including on the islands of Java, Sumatra, Bali, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Nusa Tengarra. There have been a number of human fatalities in this latest outbreak. The World Health Organization is still investigating the possibility of human-to-human transmission. If you are traveling to Indonesia, you should consult your usual healthcare provider for travel medical advice before departure. The risk from Avian Influenza is believed to be very low, provided you avoid visiting live animal markets, poultry farms and other places where you may come into close contact with domestic, caged or wild birds; and ensure poultry and egg dishes are thoroughly cooked.
This advice is based on information provided by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in the UK. It is correct at time of publishing. As the situation can change rapidly, visitors are advised to contact the following organizations for the latest travel advice.

  1. Health Information
  2. Recent Disease Outbreak
  3. Hospital Database

Dental care

Avoid dental treatment in Indonesia as the standards of care and hygiene cannot be guaranteed.

Medication Availability

Medication in short supply and even when available is often out of date or heat damaged.

Blood supplies

Screening is inconsistent in Indonesia, therefore blood supplies should be considered as unsafe

Medical facilities

The general level of sanitation and health care in Indonesia is below Western standards. Some level of routine medical care is available in all major cities, although most expatriates choose to leave the country for serious medical procedures. Medical care in East Timor is extremely limited.

General caution

Recent medical and dental exams should ensure that the traveler is in good health. Carry appropriate health and accident insurance documents and copies of any important medical records. Bring an adequate supply of all prescription and other medications as well as any necessary personal hygiene items, including a spare pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses if necessary. Drink only bottled beverages (including water) or beverages made with boiled water. Do not use ice cubes or eat raw seafood, rare meat or dairy products. Eat well-cooked foods while they are still hot and fruits that can be peeled without contamination. Avoid roadside stands and street vendors. Swim only in well-maintained, chlorinated pools or ocean water known to be free from pollution; avoid freshwater lakes, streams and rivers. Wear clothing which reduces exposed skin and apply repellents containing DEET to remaining areas. Sleep in well-screened accommodations. Carry anti-diarrheal medication. Reduce problems related to sun exposure by using sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, sunscreen lotions and lip protection.

Specific concerns

AIDS occurs. Blood supply may not be adequately screened and/or single-use, disposable needles and syringes may be unavailable. When possible, travelers should defer medical treatment until reaching a facility where safety can be assured. The large number of tropical plants and pollution levels in urban areas may cause children and adults with asthma problems severe discomfort.

Immunization

Hepatitis A: Consider active immunization with hepatitis A vaccine or passive immunization with immune globulin (IG) for all susceptible travelers. Especially consider choosing active immunization for persons planning to reside for a long period or for persons who take frequent short-term trips to risk areas. The importance of protection against hepatitis A increases as length of stay increases. It is particularly important for persons who will be living in or visiting rural areas, eating or drinking in settings of poor or uncertain sanitation, or who will have close contact with local persons (especially young children) in settings with poor sanitary conditions. Hepatitis B: Vaccination is advised for health care workers, persons anticipating direct contact with blood from or sexual contact with inhabitants, and persons planning extended stays of 6 months or greater (especially those who anticipate using local health care facilities, staying in rural areas, or having intimate contact with the local population). Japanese Encephalitis: Consider vaccination if staying a month or more on Bali, Irian Jaya, Java, Kalimantan, Lombok, Mollucas, Nusa Tenggara or Sulawesi, especially if travel includes rural areas. Also consider if staying less than 30 days and at high risk (in case of epidemic outbreak or extensive outdoor exposure in rural areas). While transmission likely occurs all year and varies by island, peak risk is generally from November to March, although it is June to July in some years. Human cases have historically been reported only on Bali and Java. Polio: A one-time booster dose is recommended for travelers who have previously completed a standard course of polio immunization. Refer to CDC guidelines for vaccinating unimmunized or incompletely immunized persons. Pregnancy is a relative contraindication to vaccination; however, if protection is needed, either IPV or OPV may be used, depending on preference and time available. Rabies: Preexposure vaccination should be considered for travel to Java, Kalimantan, Sumatra or Sulawesi for persons staying longer than 30 days who are expected to be at risk to bites from domestic and/or wild animals (particularly dogs), or for persons engaged in high risk activities such as spelunking or animal handling. Need for vaccination is more important if potential exposure is in rural areas and if adequate postexposure care is not readily available. Typhoid: Vaccination should be considered for persons staying longer than 3 weeks, adventurous eaters, and those who will venture off the usual tourist routes into small cities, villages and rural areas. Importance of vaccination increases as access to reasonable medical care becomes limited. Contraindications depend on vaccine type. Note: All routine vaccines (such as DTP or Td, Hib, MMR, polio, varicella, influenza and pneumococcal) should be kept up-to-date as a matter of good health practice unrelated to travel.

Disease risk summary

The general level of community sanitation and public health awareness is low throughout Indonesia. Insect-borne illness: considered an important cause of disease in this area. Chikungunya fever - occurs Dengue fever - occurs Dengue hemorrhagic fever - occurs Encephalitis (Japanese type) - occurs (risk may extend to resort areas, including those on Bali) Filariasis - prevalent in rural areas Malaria - common Typhus (mite-borne) - occurs in deforested areas Food-borne and water-borne illness: these diseases are common. Cholera - occurs Dysentery (amoebic and bacillary) - occurs Fasciolopsiasis (giant intestinal fluke) - occurs Hepatitis - occurs Melioidosis - occurs Schistosomiasis - occurs on the island of Sulawesi Typhoid Fever - occurs Other hazards: Diseases such as measles and diphtheria are commonly reported, and cases of polio still occur regularly. Influenza risk extends throughout the year. Rabies - occurs on Java, Kalimantan, Sumatra and Sulawesi Trachoma - occurs
