About moving to Indonesia and settling in…
When we go by the demography of the country and also its geography, we get to see a picture that tells about how the population of Indonesia sees people from different cultures, ethnicities, and beliefs. And how there are about 1300 different ethnic groups residing in the country at present. Therefore, if you ever feel apprehensive regarding your hurriedly planned move to the country, know that you would not have a daunting time settling in, owing to the culture of immigration that is relevant in Indonesia because the majority of people you will come across would be those who would have migrated there from another country.
But still, make sure you do some research in general, about the country so that you do not feel you are moving to an alienated land and neither find yourself as an estranged individual in the country. For instance, you should know about the culture, life, cost of living, and the atmosphere of Indonesia. Being located along the equator, Indonesia largely faces a stable climate wherein there is no drastic change in the weather noticed. There is nothing as scorching summers or bone-chilling winters. It is even and therefore a favorable place to be, whether for a short-haul or long-term settlement.
Although you will find the people of Indonesia quite earnest and openhearted and there would not be anything strange in the country, but you should remain cautious and take your time before you act or make a decision.
Regarding fulfilling relocation paperwork and regulations to follow…
Now that you know that Indonesia is highly preferred as a favorable country for settlement, you will be surprised to know that the country has seen a peak rise in the foreign immigration ratio as it has grown to about 176 countries from around the globe, which once used to be merely 17 to 18 countries. Reason for this high degree of immigration could be several reasons but the main factors that drive people to Indonesia from around the globe are not just its pleasant weather and peaceful settlement but because of the enriching opportunities that it offers to its people, (not only the residents but also the immigrants). As the country is highly advanced in terms of culture, business scope, and accelerating economic growth, it remains on top of the immigration list of youngsters from around the globe who keep struggling to decide where they should eventually move to, in the future, for work or business.
Regarding the relocation formalities and requisites, one should try to dig into immigration guides given on the centralized websites and immigration portals that update you with up-to-date information throughout the year. The majority of people moving to Indonesia can stay there for one month without holding a Visa. But for those who plan to settle in the country permanently, will have to go through a process for obtaining the visa which will either involve procurement of a quick visa (or visa on arrival) which will allow you to stay in the country for a maximum of 60 days. Other than that, those seeking temporary accommodation in Indonesia would need Itas, and people looking for permanent residency in the country will have to apply for Kitas, a prerequisite for which again is the successful holding of Itas for at least 3 years. So, make sure you are aware of all this before you go ahead and settle yourself.
Some key regulations one must be aware of, about moving to Indonesia, include:
• Owing to more and more people eventually finding comfort in the land of Indonesia, the cost of real estate has grown tremendously. But if you start with your search early and give yourself time to compare more property options, you can manage to get your hands on a fairly budgeted property.
• Follow the rules of home ownership as laid out by the property dealers or brokers to get possession of your newly bought/moved accommodation. Expats are charged highly, which is a common phenomenon for every other country or city you move to but when you are moving to Indonesia, this is something to be taken care of.
• For someone planning to move into a newly purchased property will have to produce certain necessary documents including the proofs as requested by the property manager or owner. This might include displaying income proof, employer letter, etc. and one can easily browse from a fair number of accommodation options for self and family – ranging from houses or apartments.
• As a customer, you should also research the immediate list of things (requisites) you will need help with and plan accordingly. This might include keeping the bank statements ready and also the other proofs you may need to open a new account in Indonesia, once you have settled the post-move duties.
• Have your health insurance renewed and do some groundwork regarding the worthiness of your current insurance coverage because it may not be apt for the destination country or there could be certain adjustments to the plan, made by the medical authorities, as per their laws.
