Friday April 03, 2020 (11:21:41)

Some expats choose to travel elsewhere for their healthcare needs. They therefore sort out their insurance before travelling to Indonesia – for certain types of visa, this is actually compulsory. We will look at some of your options regarding health insurance below.   more ...
