Even we expatriates who stay in Indonesia on KITAS along with Indonesian Citizens have to pay Fiscal fee at Airport if we depart from Indonesia,

I just read in a Local newspaper MEDIA INDONESIA they are going to reduce or just abolish this practice..

Would it benefit to the Tourism sector or just hurt the revenues of the GoVernment??

Jeroen, the fiscal fees are practically invisible to you if you're not Indonesian. Only Indonesians and Indonesian residents have to cough up that much dough to get out of the country. Indonesians who have non-Indonesian addresses in their passports also do not need to pay that Rp.1.000.000 fee (to the best of my knowledge lah).

But yes, it would be nice if that absurd fiscal fee is reduced or even (hopefully!) abolished! Then more of my Indonesian friends can come visit me in Malaysia. Emoticon: Smile

I know that I don't have to pay them, but maybe in the future I will have some kind of permit for long term stay (who says I don't get it?) and then I have to pay as an Indonesian when leaving the country.
When I leave Indonesia, I will probably go home, back to Holland, which is not a member of ASIAN obviously. Maybe I have to go to Malaysia instead then. Emoticon: Shiny

Sangat ironis memang bangsa Indonesia ini. Banyak para wajib pajak yang seharusnya dikenakan pajak milyaran malah terbebas atau dibebaskan, tapi rakyat kecil malah dikenakan bermacam-macam pajak. Lihatlah bagaimana kalau sekiranya anda mau bepergian mengunjungi sanak keluarga di Malaysia, maka anda harus membayar Airport Tax besarnya Rp100.000,-, asuransi dan yang menyakitkan fiskal yang besarnya Rp1.000.000,-.

Coba anda bayangkan, dengan tambang penerbangan yang murah seperti yang ditawarkan oleh AIRASIA (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd maka tidak heran tambang penerbangan Bandung-Kuala Lumpur (PP) hanya Rp350.000,- sementara fiskalnya Rp1 juta.

Persoalannya masih patutkah dipertahankan pungutan fiskal tersebut? Organisasi pelancongan PATA/IATA bahkan telah sejak lama meminta pemerintah Indonesia menghapuskan pungutan fiskal ini. Bahkan negara-negara tetangga ASEAN menilai kebijakan ini diskiriminatif karena mereka tidakpun menerapkan kebijakan itu kepada warga negaranya.

Adakah ini kebijakan sebuah rezim seperti halnya komunis yang ingin membatasi rakyatnya berkesempatan melihat kemajuan negara-negara luar? Bukankah dengan besarnya pungutan fiskal seperti itu malah menghambat percepatan 'melek' informasi terhadap dunia luar? Bukankah justru baik buat Indonesia jika banyak rakyatnya berkesempatan bepergian ke luar negara, setidaknya dari pendidikan civic, rakyat kita belajar dari orang lain bagaimana tertib berlalu lintas, tertib membuang sampah, tertib dengan aturan, dan lain sebagainya.

Pada tanggal 14 April 2004 yang lalu, Media Indonesia ada menyiarkan komentar Menteri Pariwisata tentang rencana pencabutan pungutan fiskal. Disitu dikatakan negara-negara ASEAN meminta menteri pariwisata mendekati pemerintah untuk menghapuskan fiskal tersebut?

Jika demikian, bukankah menteri pariwisata adalah bagian pemerintah, dan sudah sepatutnya hal ini jadi pembicaraan tingkat menteri bahkan jika perlu Presiden. Isu pungutan fiskal ini bukanlah baru dan ini sudah lama diprotes oleh organisasi pelancongan khususnya di kawasan ASEAN.

Bukankah seharusnya pemerintah sensitif dalam memajukan ASEAN sebagai destinasi pelancongan dan bukan menyekat rakyatnya dengan berbagai macam pungutan. Dan jika mau jujur belum tentu pungutan fiskal tersebut masuk ke kas negara. Ataukah mesti menunggu pemerintahan baru yang lebih sensitif dengan kepentingan rakyat. wallahualam.

There are plans to abolish the fiscal fees in 2005. But there is some opposition (f.i. from the ministry of Finance) because it is a great cashcow for the Indonesian state. The bizar situation is now that a ticket to Singapore or Malaysia cost less then the amount of the fiscal fee!

I don'tknow it is right, but in sumatra some indonesian people told me that they don't have to pay that taxfee when they go by plain from medan to
malaysia. if this is sure then it can be a solution also for people of other parts of indonesia to avoid the 1 miljon.
From KL I think it is easy to go where you want ,europe or the states by buying a ticket there.

From what i know from my inlaws that you don't need to pay the Fiskal if you go to Penang (Malaysia) but if you travel to Kuala Lumpur you still would have to pay the Fiskal.

I think it depends on which immigration office the passport being issued. Let's say... the passport is issued by Jakarta's immigration office.. then you still have to pay for fiscal fee, regardless you fly out from Medan or any other fiscal-free point.

>by regulation for those 'KITAS holder' who are staying in Rep. Indonesia not more than 90 days, they dont need to pay the 'fiscal luar negeri', this regulation is same with the regulation if you are Indonesian and living abroad and not more than 90 days staying in Rep. Indonesia than you get fiscal free for 4 times if you are not staying in Indonesia more than 90 days, BUT......
They never give you a clear information, or perhaps the staffs in the Airport do not know or dont want to know about above regulation.

I've read about this fiscal tax for the last 6-months or so... hearing that it will be abolished. But the Parliment moves very slowly on such things. I understand that no one in the government can figure out where the money goes - or what it is for! Is it for the airport budget use? Or does it just get spread around? I have heard that you can bargain for a discount down to 600,000 Rph at some places.

By the way, tourists will come on a short-term or social visa, renewable up to 6 months, are exempt from fiscal.

Another interesting fact is that on March 25,2005, the United Nations passed a resolution (59/203}which states:

"Recalling that the family is the basic unit of society and, as such, should be
strengthened, and that it is entitled to receive comprehensive protection and support,
1. Once again calls upon all States to guarantee the universally recognized
freedom of travel to all foreign nationals legally residing in their territory;"

If you got guts, it would be interesting to confront the airport people with this information... you might get off cheaper! Emoticon: Nooo Emoticon: Frustrated
