Indonesia Is Offering Flexible Visa In Bid To Attract Digital Nomads

Are you a digital nomad and looking for a new place to work from? How about from the shores of the crystal blue sea? Then, your search ends here! Indonesia has launched “Digital Nomad Visas” for travellers to attract outside visitors and improve the country’s economic standing. While Bali is one of its well-known tourist destinations, famous for its beaches and the bars, the nation is placing trust in these visas for another aspect, namely the spiritual element. 

All You Need To Know About The Indonesia Digital Nomads Visa 

Sandiaga Uno, Indonesia’s tourism minister, has announced changes in visa regulations to encourage travel to the nation. This will allow remote workers to remain in Indonesia for extended periods of time, including in Bali, and to do so tax-free thanks to the Digital Nomad Visa programme.

Given that it would be valid for five years, the digital nomad visa is quite enticing. Introducing such a visa will allow more than 3.6 million foreign tourists to enter the nation over the next year. One can even check out Indonesia’s eco and spiritual destinations.

Uno said that since the borders are now open to foreign visitors, this will helps them attract more travellers, and it would ultimately lead to the creation of a million employment opportunities for Indonesians.

The 3 S’s Are Changing 

Sun, Sea, and Sand were the 3 S’s, but  they are going for serenity, spirituality, and sustainability. In addition, the government now also offers Visa on Arrival (VoA), Tourist or Cultural Visa and Country’s Free Visa. These come with durations ranging from 30 to 180 days, and also serve as additional visa options for digital nomads.

Other nations, too, are also looking forward to take advantage of remote employment possibilities. While Malaysia this week established legislation allowing qualified digital nomads to remain for an entire year, the Philippines provides “workation” packages in the Boracay resort.
