We recommend that you take an insurance policy before you leave your home country. However, you need to ensure that the insurance covers services worldwide. There are quite a number of reputable international insurance companies available in Indonesia.
It will take a few days before you are financially settled after your arrival in Indonesia. Meanwhile, you will definitely need easy access to your financial source to cover immediate expenses when you are abroad. It would be more convenient if you have a relevant international account from your country or a bank account corresponding to banks in Indonesia.
Apart from that, we also recommend that you open an account in one of the banks that has cooperation with Universitas Indonesia as this partnership has facilitated students in paying their academic fees. Since the payment is done by host-to-host (online) system, having an account in one of these banks will provide convenience whenever you need to pay academic fees each semester.
*Please note that if you do not have an account in one of the university’s corresponding banks, you have to pay academic fees by cash. Paying academic fees by bank draft is not acceptable.
You do not have to bring too many personal items for your necessities in Indonesia. UI is located nearby malls and shopping centers that provide customers with daily requirements, clothing and electronic equipments. Indonesia is a country with a tropical season and is usually rainy from October to March and sunny from April to September. So, you do not need to bring too many seasonal clothing.
Before coming to Indonesia you have to plan where will you stay in Indonesia. Accomodations available can be divided into two categories:
