As you are aware the fasting month of Ramadhan will begin shortly, which will affect the working hours of the Indonesian government authorities. Please take note of the holiday periods listed below as there will be restrictions to the process of permits during this time. Please consider and plan accordingly to give all parties sufficient notice to prepare the required operational permits. This is inclusive of vessel and crew movements.
