Living in Tangerang

The Indonesian city of Tangerang is located in the Banten province of the country. The weather in Tangerang is usually humid and hot, and Tangerang is known for being quite chaotic with its bustling city center experiencing very heavy and slow moving traffic. Expats in Tangerang who prefer a quieter life typically choose to live a little further out of the city where the scene is not so hectic. Indonesia has a fascinating culture which can be seen in the many and varied and ancient temples and the diverse range of music that is listened to. The rituals and day to day lifestyle of Indonesia’s people differs on each island of the country. However, no matter where expatriates choose to relocate within Indonesia and more specifically in Tangerang, they are sure to receive a warm welcome from the locals who are famed for their friendly and hospitable nature.

Moving to Tangerang

Any expatriate planning on moving to Tangerang needs to obtain a visa to do so. Expats travelling from some countries are able to stay in the country for a maximum of thirty days without a visa but it is important to check beforehand to see if this rule applies to you personally. Acquiring permission to relocate to Indonesia can be difficult because of the complex way that laws there are passed. A permit for permanent residential status is known as a KITAP. These permits are valid for up to 5 years but can be extended five years at a time. These are mainly granted to expatriates who plan to remain in the country on a permanent basis. If you have decided to relocate to Tangerang or are unsure about making such a big change, InterNations can make the decision making process and the whole relocating experience much easier and less intimidating. InterNations, as the largest online expat network worldwide, has lots of online group discussions that you can take part in and forums where you can get tips and advice from expats living in Tangerang, other parts of Indonesia, or around the world, who really know what they're talking about.

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