All purchase of arms for personal use from other countries/foreign sources, must acquire "Import Licensing" from the Head of Indonesian National Police.
Prior to their sale, these purchases will have to be stored in the Police storage facilities for proper controlling and safety precaution.
In addition, the user/owner of SALW has to submit proper identification, including the type, mark, caliber, amount and former data or weapons and ammunitions, location of distribution, bio-data, name of the country or last port that exported such weapons. The Head of National Police will decide to issue a license or permit if the user fulfills all these requirements.
At this moment, there is an administrative procedure issued by Head of Indonesian National Police that individual possessors are not allowed to keep their own weapons and should be stored at the Police storage.
