Hi, my wife and I are thinking of accepting a job offer in Jakarta, The package includes 60 million for housing allowance. We are not sure if this is for monthly or annually. If it is for annually, would we be able to find a reasonable apartment for the 60 million amount.
Expat Health Insurance
If you’re thinking about taking out private health insurance, our trusted partner Cigna Global is very aware of all the difficulties that expats can face when it comes to healthcare in a new location, so they have created a range of international health insurance plans specifically designed for expats, which you can tailor exactly to the needs and ensure access to quality care for you and your family.
Sirelo has a network of more than 500 international removal companies that can move your furniture and possessions to your new home. By filling in a form, you’ll get up to 5 quotes from recommended movers. This service is free of charge and will help you select an international moving company that suits your needs and budget.
Best to clarify this with your employer before accepting the offer. From what I can tell, 60 million wouldn't be enough for the entire year, though it would be plenty for monthly rent. As you can see on our Cost of Living in Indonesia page, a one-bedroom apartment in Jakarta's city centre would set you back more than 10 million a month, which would add up to around 120 million a year.
