Moving to Jakarta / sending money home

Hi all,

I got a very good offer for a Job in Jakarta and it looks like I will be moving there this Summer. Most of the obvious stuff, like Apartement etc are taking care already and I am ready to sign the Contract.

However, I do have one Question. My wife and I have financial commitments in Canada . What are the laws on sending money abroad in Indonesia. We are not talking huge amounts here that I need to send back - but I was just curious how it works and how difficult it is . I would prefer monthly payments vs a lump sum every 3 months or so.

So how exactly does it work ?
