PURCHASE of a property :

Can I get a credit for buying a villa in Bali?
In Bali, it is impossible for a foreigner to obtain a credit (except special case). Regarding your borrowing opportunities in your country, unfortunately this is an issue we do not control because it depends on several factors. For example, some of our clients have already made loans in exchange for a mortgage in France..

If your villa does not generate income, you do not have to be in possession of a particular visa. Otherwise, you will have to build a company that will allow you to generate income legally.

If I want to reserve a piece of land, which documents should I provide?
When you stay in Bali, your passport will suffice. Ideally, the land in question will have to be paid before your departure from Bali, your presence being necessary for the signing of documents at the notary. If you are not on site and you want to reserve a particular land, we have the possibility, after a down payment, to take a stand on your land, waiting for your arrival in Bali.

This is better because in case of purchase of a property, you will have to pay the various expenses related to your purchase (property tax, insurance, salaries of your staff if necessary, etc.). In case of renting, you will have to deposit the rent amount in an Indonesian bank account.

Owning in Indonesia does not entitle you to a kitas. You can, for example, create a company to hold a work kit. For more information, do not hesitate to contact us.
