Raja Ampat Marine Park Fee Increase4
From February 1, 2015 a new Raja Ampat Marine Park entry permit tag structure will be in place.
- The permit fee for international visitors will be IDR1,000,000 (about USD 80.00)
- The permit fee for Indonesian citizens will be IDR 500,000
- The permit will be valid for 12 months from date of purchase.
Raja Ampat Marine Park entry permit fees are directed to the operational costs of Raja Ampat’s five Marine Protected Areas and to community conservation and development programs.
Collection of the funds is the responsibility of a new organisation created to ensure the transparent disbursement of funds, the local government Department of Oceans and Fisheries.
The fees have been doubled in order to provide an income stream that will account for a larger percentage of the true marine protected area operational costs and community development programs.
A Raja Ampat National Park entry permit PIN (or tag) must be purchased by all visitors to Raja Ampat. Legislation provides for a pretty hefty fine if the authorities find you in the park without one.
