Regular socializing with fellow French is an essential part of expat life and helps getting accustomed to the Indonesian way of life and mentality. InterNations helps you connect and meet up with other French in Indonesia, residing in Jakarta, Medan, Semerang and many other places throughout the country. Just take a look at our group of French in Jakarta or French in Bali.

  • Search the InterNations Places database for Indonesia to get information on institutions from your home country, including the French embassy.

From the steep mountains and extensive cave systems of Kalimantan to the ricelands, coffee plantations and volcanoes of Java, we’ll help you connect with supportive and friendly French expats in Indonesia.
