I have a Singapore registered bike, but no carnet. Was traveling to Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos without troubles. But now I'm thinking about going from Penang to Belawan/Indonesia by ferry and most people say one needs a carnet. Though those are mostly non-ASEAN bikers. Do you guys know if Singaporean bikes also need one? Or is there any other option to bring my bike into Indonesia? The carnet is money- and hassle-wise just no option for me. On horizonsunlimited I found this:
Any information about it, highly appreciated!... I believe that you require a letter from the Indonesian motorcycling club (IMI) to obtain a letter to bring a vehicle into Indonesia.
In line with this, since Indonesia has not yet ratified the international vehicular carnet system, I would advise you to contact IMI to have the recommendation/invitation to bring your Motorcycle to Kalimantan.
