Local Bank Account Registration

Local Bank Account Registration

Both foreign investors and citizens must consider opening bank accounts when they move to Indonesia. This is because most of the transactions here are completed online through credit cards which are linked to local bank accounts.

Types of bank accounts which can be set up in Indonesia

Both local and foreign citizens can open the same types of Indonesian bank accounts. These are:

  •           checking or current accounts which can be used by employees in Indonesian companies;
  •           savings accounts which can be used for several operations, such as ATM withdrawals;
  •           deposit accounts which have the advantage of offering higher interests on deposits;
  •           tourist bank accounts which come in various forms and are very advantageous for foreign visitors; individuals who are interested in immigration to Indonesia will typically not choose this form;

Companies in Indonesia that have a foreign shareholder must maintain a bank account. Set it up with a bank that has the license to handle foreign currencies ( known as Foreign-Exchange Bank or Bank Devisa).
