When we asked expats in Indonesia if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Foreigners are generally not allowed to own property in Indonesia. However, there are certain exceptions. Foreigners may own property in Indonesia if they have a valid residence permit, or if they are married to an Indonesian citizen. Additionally, foreign companies may own property in Indonesia if they have a valid business license. In all cases, the property must be registered with the local government," explained one expat living in Indonesia.
