When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Indonesia, they said...

"Actual move: 1) Know how far & how much will the company be providing. If private, then Expat Relocation Company is the best company. They also do the maintenance and the middle man between the landlord and you. Less hassle from your part. They always get their job done. The owners are expats and they make sure service is always satisfactory. Choosing a neighborhood: 1) The very first thing is to know whether the area is high enough not to get flooded. 2) Know your neighborhood. Like if it's mostly local, know the history. Finding a home: 1) Expat Relocation Company is the best deal ever. Less headache and less hassle," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Jakarta, Indonesia.

"Planning to move to Indonesia can be a complicated process. It is essential for expats to gain a basic understanding of the country's culture and customs, and be aware of any visa requirements and regulations. Expats should research the languages spoken in Indonesia, as well as the cost of living in their desired location. It is also important to secure adequate health insurance coverage to provide protection from any potential medical expenses. Finally, expats should familiarize themselves with local laws and regulations to ensure that they remain compliant," commented one expat who made the move to Indonesia.
