Make the most of living and working in Jakarta

Expat living in Jakarta raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from Indonesian authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺIs it difficult for expat spouses to find employment?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend doctors and dentists in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Jakarta takes a lot of time. Our Jakarta expat guide is there to make your relocation to Jakarta as easy as possible. Starting with education and children to information about local infrastructure, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Jakarta.
