Digital Nomad Visa for Foreign Citizens Working Remotely from Indonesia

Azra Solution,Banten –Based on a survey from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, it was found that 95 percent of remote workers chose Indonesia, especially Bali, as the first destination for remote work. Many companies like Airbnb allow their employees to work from anywhere. Currently, there are five countries that have the highest number of foreign tourists to Bali, namely Australia, Singapore, England, the United States, and France.

The Government of the Republic of Indonesia is currently discussing the issue of digital nomad visas or visas for remote workers for foreign nationals.

Quoted from the official page of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, the study on digital nomad visas has reached the final stage. The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) will soon launch a digital nomad visa for foreign tourists who want to work remotely (remote workers).

This digital nomad visa is planned to be valid for five years, to attract tourists to come to Indonesia to enjoy quality and sustainable tourist destinations in Indonesia with a much longer stay, as well as quality shopping that can have a positive impact on local economic growth.

Statement of the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno in the Weekly Press Briefing, in Jakarta, quoted by Antara media, Monday (13/6). “After the era of the COVID-19 pandemic and digitalization, many remote workers or digital nomads want to live in Bali and in other tourist destinations in Indonesia.”

This is an innovation in responding to the flow of digitalization and changes in employee behavior patterns after the Covid-19 pandemic who want to stay relaxed while on vacation.

“Long term visas are also expected to target the silver economy, namely foreign nationals who may have a preference during winter to live in Bali or other destinations because they have a more friendly climate.”

Another expectation is that the quality of foreign tourist visits to Bali can reach between 50 and 60 percent, with a longer length of stay and a higher quality of spending. So that it can have a positive impact on the local economy.
