Indonesia, one of the less-known countries for international education, currently has an increasing number of international students. International students are predominantly comprised of individuals from non-native English-speaking backgrounds, which results in numerous information gaps due to the challenges they encounter with multiple layers of barriers. They also experience a digital transition from one digital bundle of sources to the other new bundle. There needs to be more research on international students' information behaviours in non-English speaking countries, specifically in the digital journeys context. Since the existing research focuses on traditional English-speaking countries, a deeper understanding of this context needs to be studied. This research-in-progress article will examine the literature on international students' information behaviour and the challenges during digital journeys. It will then identify gaps in international students’ information behaviour in non-English speaking countries, specifically Indonesia. Finally, it will lay out the research agenda for future research.
