Land E-Certificates: Transforming Land Ownership in Bali

land e certificate bali

Land e-certificates, also known as "Sertifikat-el" in Indonesian, are revolutionizing land ownership in Bali and Lombok, Indonesia. These digital certificates offer heightened security, efficiency, and accessibility compared to traditional paper certificates. Stored securely within a government database, they contain crucial information such as ownership details, precise measurements, and location coordinates.


The advantages of land e-certificates are manifold:


1. Enhanced Security: With digital encryption and secure storage, e-certificates are far less susceptible to loss, damage, or forgery than their paper counterparts, minimizing the risk of fraud.


2. Improved Efficiency: Transactions involving land e-certificates can be conducted online, eliminating the need for physical document handling and resulting in faster and more convenient processes.


3. Increased Accessibility: E-certificates can be easily accessed and shared electronically, simplifying land transactions and reducing the risk of physical loss or misplacement.


As of February 15, 2024, land e-certificates are available in all cities and regencies in Bali, accessible through the "Sentuh Tanahku" application. While the program is still in its early stages, significant progress has been made:


Initial rollout: The government has commenced issuing land e-certificates to residents in select areas, with President Jokowi personally distributing the first few certificates in Bali.

Conversion focus: The primary emphasis is on converting existing paper certificates to e-certificates, particularly targeting uncertified land and government certificates.

Mandatory transition: The conversion process is tied to property transactions (jual beli). If you're involved in a property transaction, shifting from the old certificate to the new e-certificate is mandatory. There will be no option to keep the old certificate.
