Move to Bali Consulting


Moving to Bali is an exciting opportunity but also a great challenge.

Speaking of challenges, the world is currently living with COVID19. This pandemic has changed our lives in so many ways as it has demonstrated how we can work and school remotely, making a move to Bali very possible.

When we moved to Bali, we spent a year researching and not until we lived there did we realise just how difficult it was to gain a good understanding on how things actually worked. We also discovered that there was a lot of unspoken information that we would never find online.

We have learnt a great deal about expat life: from choosing the right school and
extra-curricular activities to finding a good doctor, understanding the Balinese work culture and opening a bank account.

For example, deciding on a safe neighbourhood to live in and which school to attend are often the first topics to research. There are many expat communities around the island including Sanur, Canggu and Ubud and as development continues the outskirts of these areas are becoming very popular too.

So we have put this service together to give you honest feedback to suit your needs and budget so you can have the right information to make informed decisions.
