Legal Updates | Update on License for Companies in Indonesia to Operate During Pandemic

The Indonesian Ministry of Industry announced last week that industrial companies and/or companies located in industrial parks can continue to operate their factories and offices and maintain the movement of their workers, materials and finished products during the COVID-19 lockdown if they have the necessary operational license, known in Indonesian as an Izin Operasional dan Mobilitas Kegiatan Industri.

Companies with an account at the National Industry Information System (Sistem Informasi Industri Nasional or “SIINas”) can apply for the abovementioned license through the SIINas website.

Based on our recent discussions with our contacts at the Ministry of Industry, a SIINas account is only available to companies that have obtained their Industrial Business License (Izin Usaha Industri or “IUI”) from the Online Single Submission (“OSS”) system or uploaded their IUI to the OSS system if they obtained the license prior to the launch of the OSS system. If companies have not uploaded their license, their registration for a SIINas account will be rejected.

Also, please expect some delay in processing these licenses. Due to the recently enacted social distancing restrictions in Jakarta, there are fewer than 10 officials designated to handle licensing at the moment. If you experience any technical difficulties during the application process, you can contact the SIINas helpdesk through the SIINas website or by email at, or at the following numbers: 0819-500-7755, 0878-010-84059 or 0878-010-84069.
