While having to go through the process of renewing one of the 30 billion business licenses we have to carry in Indonesia, I have been informed of another new regulation.

Now I am new to Indonesia so I could be wrong but as far as I know JAMSOSTEK payments are made to the Indonesian government to cover (amongst other things)employee accidents at work. Seems reasonable to me and I am happy to pay up. What amazes me is that the Jakarta government have also introduced a second employee accident cover scheme which they tell me I MUST use or I will not be issued the renewed license.

I am not an angry man but i feel the time is right for a holiday outside of Indonesia for fear that I may end up stabbing a "government official" or two. No doubt when I plunge the knife deep in to the worms heart for the 40th time he will still be smiling and trying to get money out of me

ask a government official if you need a licence, and the answer is always "yes".

there is no other compulsory workers insurance apart from Jamsostek. anyone who says otherwise is a liar, and has probably got some scam running with a bogus insurance company.

do nothing. and see what happens.

Wait until the baby turns up (and you get it easy with the new regulations) - take your holiday then .
