    5 days Mandatory Quarantine for Indonesian and Foreigners Enquiry

    I would not book through agoda etc. Just book directly with the hotel and get them to arrange pickup. They will be there with a sign with your name on it.

    5 days Mandatory Quarantine for Indonesian and Foreigners Enquiry

    Javasatu you are much much better off booking everything through the hotel before arrival, including the room itself and the transportation. Its not cheap but worth it according to everyone i know who has gone through this process.

    When do the schools go back after Corona?

    Reads a bit like a promotion to me. Do you have an interest in it?

    5 days Mandatory Quarantine for Indonesian and Foreigners Enquiry

    Recommend you prebook and arrange rather than just turning up at the airport and picking one. Also prebook the hotel pickup

    Prime Rib Enquiry

    Wow im learning about meat through this thread. For me a prime rib always meant it was sliced straight away from a roast and because of that only specialized restaurants (which there is not in jakarta now) and hotel buffets would be able to offer it as its either too big or too much waste for a...

    Indonesian Term Deposits

    Just a note that if the funds are currently in USD dont use HSBC to change it to rupiah. Theres threads with lots of other options and HSBC are pretty lousy on exchange rates.

    DON'T PANIC.... well, maybe a little bit.

    This is for over 60's at the moment right? I presume it will take a few months to move to the next age group.

    DON'T PANIC.... well, maybe a little bit.

    Yes true but did you read the article? A lot of info there about total deaths increasing, testing bodies after death to determine was COVID the cause etc. Total deaths are up but not by the predicted numbers and in can be (partially) explained through not treating other diseases, increased...

    DON'T PANIC.... well, maybe a little bit.

    Interesting article about why some countries (typically rich countries) have been hit harder by covid. I think its a bit of better resistance in poorer countries and under reporting. Maybe climate is a factor too. Im sure our numbers in Indonesia are much higher than reported but also its not...

    Moving our stuff to Bali - Help and advice needed!

    All 3 companies I mentioned are very professional and handle embassies, schools etc. Not cheap but they will all do a good job for you.

    Moving our stuff to Bali - Help and advice needed!

    Have you considered using one of the companies who specialize in this? They are not cheap but do a good job in my experience and handle it all from the wrapping to shipping to customs clearance. Bigger ones in Indonesia include Asian tigers, Santa Fe, Allied Pickfords.

    Twitter Wars: Bali vs. Kristen Gray

    Why can't Bali compete with Malaysia for rich retirees? I don't think I'd ever want to live in Malaysia

    Would you travel to Indonesia now? Should I stay, or should I go now...

    So far we know Tex came here for shagging, doesn't like the place, and doesn't know anyone who has over 6 months rent in the bank. Was there more to add? He hasn't said anything positive on any subject yet. I for one am glad this guy doesn't like Jakarta and hope he leaves soon. The place would...

    Twitter Wars: Bali vs. Kristen Gray

    Happyman I do understand your point now. Its just that there are thousands and thousands of job types which Indonesia bans. I dont understand why digital nomads should get an easy ride of it whilst (for example) a foreign chiropractor, dentist or doctor is not allowed. Digital nomads seem to be...

    Twitter Wars: Bali vs. Kristen Gray

    Why should I have to pay tax on my worldwide income then? I live here but my work is not just Indonesia based, and yet I comply with the laws and pay tax here. I bet i spend a lot more here too than 99% of these influencers. Why should Indonesians also have to pay tax on income earned online...
