For many expats, being close to your child's school is a priority. Almost all of Jakarta's international schools are located around South Jakarta, and the nearby areas are incredibly popular with international families.

According to Gene Sugandy from real estate provider Colliers International, the main areas that expat families tend to move to are Kemang, Cipete, and Pondok Indah.

Rent is expected to be paid a full year in advance. This means that often companies will make the payment on behalf of their employee. For a house with a plan of around 800 square meters, you can expect to pay $3,000–5,000 per month. An apartment of around 200 square metres will cost around $2,000–$4,000 per month.
