The Expat Indonesia Chapter welcomes you!

Selamat siang and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in Indonesia! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in Indonesia. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates Indonesia: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in Indonesia?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in Medan?ʺ or ʺWhere in Jakarta can I meet fellow expats and compatriots from my home country?” Just to name a few examples…

InterNations aim is to help you, as an expatriate, in becoming part of the Indonesia expat community and exploring the Indonesian way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional nasi goreng to celebrating Chinese New Year in Indonesia.

Next to Indonesia we host several more communities in Asia & Oceania, e.g., our network of China Expat. Or you might be interested in our Expat Saudi Arabia community which is also fairly active.

Enjoy the Indonesia Expats Living

With attractions ranging from wild and rugged Sumatra to Java's cultural treasures, Indonesia fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The sizable expat Indonesia community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Jakarta and its political as well as economic opportunities, e.g. in the petro sector. Whether you move to and live in Indonesia for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
