Students are strongly advised to bring enough Rupiah as they arrive in Indonesia. If you do not bring any Rupiah currency with you, you are advised to change some money. Money changing facility is available at Jakarta’s Soekarno Hatta Airport. At the airport, money-changer rates are usually slightly higher for cash. Compare this with the banks and money changers in the city who offer the most competitive exchange rates.
As an international student, you will need to adapt and to settle in to a new environment. The university provides pick-up arrangement upon request. It is organized to facilitate you getting to the place of residence safely. Please contact International Office for further information regarding the pick – up service.
