It depends on the company. Some companies might want to work on-site, while others might offer a remote or hybrid internship.

Make sure to express your preferences to us in our first meeting.

Because foreign interns need to be invited by host companies under a type of visa that does not allow for remuneration.

In fact, any hosting company promoting a paid internship in Indonesia under the required visa would be going against Indonesian immigration law.

area, and availability.

In our brochure, we have a budget simulation estimated for a one-month period, breaking down the different costs for you. We will be happy to share it with you!

What is transportation like? Do I need an international driver’s license?

As a foreigner, you need to apply for an international driving license in your home

A non-international driver’s license will not be authorized to drive in Indonesia, and you will need to pay a fine if caught.

A scooter is undoubtedly the quickest and most practical mode of transportation in Bali. These can be rented on a monthly basis, and the fee varies depending on your preferences and the type of scooter that you require.

Two popular options are GOJEK & GRAB.

Renting a car, however, is generally not recommended unless you do rent one for a day trip. Traffic will make it difficult for you to get around.

Where can I look up for accommodation? How does it work?

Although there are multiple options, the most common type of accommodation to stay in Bali for an extended amount of time is shared guesthouses, where you will meet a lot of interesting people and get a fully furnished place.

You will often share a kitchen and other commodities but will have your private bedroom and bathroom.

For booking your stay in Bali or looking up information on other accommodation types, we recommend you to visit pages like Airbnb, Facebook Groups/MarketPlace, or Agoda.

We offer direct owner contacts that have been tested by our past interns or trusted accommodations that we have verified.
