Australia's Federal Transport Minister has signed a safety agreement with Indonesia, but key elements on asylum seeker boat rescues are yet to be finalised.
Anthony Albanese, who is in Jakarta, signed off on elements of the transport cooperation plan which was announced in September.
The agreement covers air, sea, rail and road transport.
Some elements of ocean rescue cooperation, such as ship tracking and an exchange program between the Australian Maritime Safety Authority and Indonesia's equivalent group, BASARNAS, have been included.
But proposals to allow Australian ships and planes to have so-called rapid clearance to enter Indonesian territory and refuel have not been completed.
The plans are aimed at speeding up asylum seeker boat rescues.
Details of how the arrangement would work are yet to be finalised, but Mr Albanese said there had been three cases of rapid clearance granted.
"That is occurring already and we look forward to it being put into practice," he said.
Indonesia's transport minister, EE Mangindaan, said procedures for it should be signed in February.
