Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan announced that the issuance of event permits will be expedited. It means there will be no permits issued just one day before the event is held.

He made the statement at the Launch of Digitalization of Event Organizing Licensing Services, at The Tribrata Hotel and Convention Center, Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta, Monday (06/24).

Luhut said that this digitalization regulates that event permits must be issued fourteen days before the D-Day for national events and 21 days before the D-Day for international events.

“After this launch, I hope that no more permits shall be issued one day before D-Day. I repeat, no more permits shall be issued one day before D-Day or even a few hours before the event,” he emphasized.

Luhut also explained that this launch is a follow up to the directive of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to streamline event licensing.

“The steps (to apply permit) for data entry are reduced from 63 documents to 33 documents and from 9 documents to 2 documents that must be submitted by the event organizer,” he said, adding that this new system integrates payments with digital services of Ministry of Finance, so that the payment system will be easier and more transparent.

He expressed hope that with the ease of event licensing, Indonesia will hold more interesting events, both national and international, and can have an economic impact.

“The Government hopes that by digitizing and streamlining event licensing, Indonesia will hold various interesting events, both national and international. As a result, tourist visits will increase MSME’s participation. It can also increase Indonesia’s competitiveness among other countries,” he explained, while adding that this effort will also be a magnet to encourage the achievement of the target of 1.25 billion domestic tourists and 14.3 million foreign tourists within the framework of the national program “Proud to Travel in Indonesia” movement of 2024,” he remarked.
