    I was amazed how many other members in Jakarta share the same interests as me. And some of them come from Norway, too !

Welcome to the InterNations Community of Expats in Indonesia!

Halo dan selamat dating, and welcome to our expat communities in Indonesia! We here at InterNations passionately believe that the best way for any expatriate to acclimatize themselves to a new community is through discussion with and help from fellow expats who have already experienced life in that country. So if you’re thinking of moving to Indonesia and have any burning questions, then why not join InterNations today? Relocating to a foreign land, especially somewhere as different to Westerners as Indonesia, can be a difficult process, but with InterNations' Indonesian communities behind you every step of the way you can confidently avoid any turbulence on your way to a smooth relocation.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are.

Embark on Your Expat Life in Indonesia

Indonesia is a vibrant, sometimes chaotic, but undeniably charming country. Spread over a thousand islands, there are literally thousands of years of history and culture to explore. Areas around the capital of Jakarta especially are on the rise economically, but all over the country big investments are being made to extract and use all the country's resources. Areas such as Papua and other oil- and gas-rich islands are seeing more job opportunities for expats, but most jobs are still in the Jakarta area. There’s a lot to see and do in Indonesia for all types of people, from ancient temples to modern, upscale clubs and restaurants in the bigger cities. This can all be overwhelming at first, so let InterNations take the heat off you and guide you through. So whether you want to know the best local bars and clubs, schools, or even find a job, InterNations is the service you need.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Portugal or Peru, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

The International Community for Expats in Indonesia

Indonesian society can be a real culture shock to many expats, as life here can be chaotic and temperamental. But hey, at least it’s exciting! Indonesian roads are legendarily hard to navigate for foreigners, and many expats consider having a local driver as an essential service. If you’re finding local life difficult to adjust to at first, don’t worry; you’re not alone! Join InterNations today and you can instantly be in contact with like-minded fellow expats, who can give you a taste of home while living in a foreign land. InterNations' communities in Indonesia offer a huge range of activities and social events at which to meet and hopefully make friends with fellow expats — from trekking and exploring in Indonesia’s plentiful jungles to cocktail nights in Jakarta and casual socials, there is sure to be something for you upon joining our friendly and welcoming InterNations community.

    It's a really helpful site: Via InterNations, we found an international playgroup for our kids (6 and 8 years old) here in Jakarta.
