In recent years Credit and Debit Cards have been commonly used as a method of payment in Indonesia. Indonesian people especially living in major cities have opted to bring less cash at hand and use Credit or Debit Cards for practical and convenient reasons. So foreigners traveling to Indonesia need not worry to use credit or debit cards for your traveling pleasure.

What kind of Credit or Debit Cards Acceptable in Indonesia?

Most international credit card networks are acceptable in Indonesia’s major cities and tourist hotspots like Jakarta, Bandung, Bali, Surabaya, Medan, Yogyakarta, etc.

Cards such as JCB (Japan Credit Bureau) is acceptable in Indonesia because it is affiliated with some of Indonesia’s major well-known bank such as BNI (Bank Negara Indonesia), CIMB Niaga, Mandiri, BRI (Bank Rakyat Indonesia). While American Express (Amex) is also acceptable however Amex has fewer affiliated local banks in Indonesia. Bank Danamon is currently one of the local banks affiliated with Amex. The most widely accepted card in all merchants in Indonesia is Visa and Mastercard.

There will be instances where stores may not display the symbols of the cards they accept. Be sure to check with the salesperson in the store prior to using your card if your card is acceptable or not.

How Much Cash Can I Bring to Indonesia?

Although credit, debit and prepaid cards of well-known brands are generally accepted in the major cities, carrying rupiah in a sufficient amount at hand is highly advisable. Especially when traveling to smaller towns and remote areas, it would probably be quite a problem finding ATMs around and local stores could only accept cash.

The amount of cash allowed into Indonesia or taking it outside the country is in the amount of IDR100,000,000.00 (one hundred million rupiahs) or other currency equivalent to this amount. More than this amount, then travelers must declare it to Indonesian Customs.

Which ATMs Could I Withdraw Cash From?

ATM’s are widespread throughout Indonesia’s major cities. Cards with Cirrus, Maestro, Plus network seems to be the most prevalent card accepted and could withdraw cash nationwide in most of Indonesia’s major bank ATMs. Cirrus and Maestro logo are associated with Mastercard, while Plus is associated with Visa. Be sure to check if the Cirrus, Maestro or Plus logo is displayed in the ATM machine prior to inserting your card.

JCB cardholder could withdraw cash in Indonesia’s affiliated banks such as BNI (Bank Negara Indonesia), CIMB Niaga, Mandiri, BRI (Bank Rakyat Indonesia). Be sure to check if the JCB or Cirrus Logo is displayed in the ATMs. While American Express cardholders could use the facility of express cash and withdraw cash from Danamon Bank ATMs throughout Indonesia.

Although it is practical to carry credit or debit cards around for your traveling pleasure, when traveling to remote areas and visiting local or traditional markets, it is highly wise and preferable to have some small change at hand for purchasing purposes. This way you are set to have a smooth and fun vacation in Indonesia. Enjoy your stay!

There are a few public holidays in Indonesia where offices are on holiday and most stores don’t open as long. On national public holidays, most people decide to stay home and rest, but there is also a chance that malls and stores will be crowded, especially if it falls like a long weekend.

This is because extended families normally gather together in their hometowns.

It is also important to note that Indonesians celebrate Ramadhan where they fast from dawn to dusk. During this time, a lot of restaurants and food stalls close to respect the ones fasting. Most fast-food restaurants or big restaurants are still open, but the curtains are normally drawn as to not be visible from the outside for respect.

Collective leave is also decided for Christmas on the 25th of December, but with a shorter time than the collective leave during Idul Fitri. Sometimes businesses decide to announce the holidays until New Year’s.

Another important holiday is the Day of Silence or Hari Raya Nyepi. It falls around March or April and is commemorated every Isakawarsa according to the Balinese calendar. It is a Hindu celebration that is mainly celebrated in Bali. It is specifically important for those of you who will be visiting Bali on this day because the airport along with the whole island will be closed off for 24 hours.

How do I make calls in Indonesia using a landline?

Telephone numbers in Indonesia have different systems for landlines and mobile phones: landlines use area codes, while mobile phones do not. For landline area codes, the digit “0” is added in front when dialing domestic long distance from within Indonesia, but is always omitted when calling from abroad. Instead, callers would use the Indonesian country code +62, followed by the area code, without the “0”. To make a phone call to Indonesia from abroad via landlines, callers dial +62, followed by the area code and subscriber’s number, omitting the ‘0’.  For calls to mobile wireless phones (GSM) from abroad, callers dial +62, followed by the subscriber’s number, omitting the ‘0’.

What are the main emergency numbers I need to know?

  • Police/General Emergencies: 110 or 112 (From Satellite and Mobile Phones)
  • Ambulance and Medical Emergencies: 118 or 119
  • Firefighter: 113
  • Search and Rescue (BASARNAS): 115
  • Natural Disaster Assistance: 129
  • Useful Numbers:
  • International Phone Number Information: 102
  • Local Phone Number Information: 108
  • Domestic Call Operator: 100 and 106
  • International Call Operators: 101 and 107

Tourism Information:

  • Bureau of Public Communication of the Ministry of Tourism: +62 21 3838899

What is the weather like in Indonesia?

The climate of Indonesia is almost entirely tropical. The uniformly warm waters that make up 81% of Indonesia’s area ensures that temperatures on land remain fairly constant, with the coastal plains averaging 28 °C, the inland and mountain areas averaging 26 °C, and the higher mountain regions, 23 °C. Temperature varies little from season to season, and Indonesia experiences relatively little change in the length of daylight hours from one season to the next.

Is the weather generally rainy?

The main variable of Indonesia’s climate is not temperature or air pressure, but rainfall. The area’s relative humidity ranges between 70% and 90%. Although air temperature changes little from season to season or from one region to the next, cooler temperatures prevail at higher elevations. In general, temperatures drop approximately 1°C per 90-meter increase in elevation from sea level with some high-altitude interior mountain regions experiencing night frosts.

Are there different seasons in Indonesia?

Being a tropical country, Indonesia does not have spring, summer, autumn, or winter, instead of just the two seasons of Rainy and Dry, both of which are relative.
