Insurance and Social Security (BPJS) is required not only for Indonesian citizens but also foreigners living in Indonesia.

All Indonesian residents, including expats who have been living in the country for 6 months or more, have the obligation to obtain BPJS Kesehatan (Healthcare BPJS). This BPJS type in Indonesia is independently processed by individuals.

If you are a part of a company, you will also get the so called BPJS Ketenagakerjaan (Social Security Card).

BPJS is provided by the company to protect all of its employees. Apart from BPJS, there are also other types of independent insurance that you can have.
