  • New Visa "Second Home" Soon Available
    Title : Indonesia to Enact Long-Term or 'Second-Home' Visas for Foreigners , Feb 2021
    Writer Tunggul Wirajuda , Syifa Nuri Khairunnisa | Editor Ni Luh Made Pertiwi F. , Tunggul Wirajuda

    [...Minister for Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno announced...February 8 that his ministry is formulating the long term stay or ‘Second Home’ Visa with Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna Laoly.

    “The long term stay or ‘Second Home’ Visa is aimed at well-heeled visitors, among them business travelers and retirees, following a study in traveling trends," Sandiaga said. "These tourists are expected to go to Indonesia 3 to 4 months per year, usually when it is winter in their countries.

    This visa will last for 5 years, and can be renewed every 5 years. The applicant will also have to place a Rp2 billion [US$143,484.20] deposit for an individual or Rp2.5 billion [US$179,355.25] for a family.”

    The former entrepreneur hopes that the long term stay or ‘second home’ visa will revive Indonesia’s tourism industry and other sectors of the country’s economy.

    “Recipients of the long term stay or ‘second home’ visa have the right to invest in Indonesia. We hope this will enable the recipient to contribute to the local economy of the Indonesian locale where they are staying, and in doing so improve the quality of their visit.”

    Sandiaga noted that “around the world there are more than one billion people over the age of 60 who collectively make more than US$15 trillion," he said. "This well-heeled segment have the ability to stay [in holiday destinations] longer, spend more in shopping, and travel for a longer period of time."

    “The long-term visa will avoid a repeat of (deportations) by providing a legal umbrella , backed by traditional wisdom and other laws, which can provide certainty for Indonesia-based digital nomads in the near future.”...

    We are also reviewing e-visas for business and tourist travelers, as it can facilitate the [long-term] visa,” he noted. Aside from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy and the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health, the Covid-19 Task Force and provincial administrations also contributed their input to the long-term visa.]

    Title : Bali reopening to foreign tourists delayed as COVID surges: Sandiaga
    By : Tom Allard and Kate Lamb , 29 June 2021

    [... "We were targeting end of July, beginning of August, but we just have to be mindful of where we are in this recent spike (in coronavirus cases)," Indonesia's Minister for Tourism and the Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno, told Reuters...

    As well as traditional tourists, Bali hopes to attract 'digital nomads' - international entrepreneurs operating internet-based companies. They will be granted 5-year visas under the proposed scheme. "If they earn income within Indonesia they will be taxed but if it's solely from overseas there will be zero tax," Sandiaga said.]

    Poster's Note , May 2022 : As you can see post no.3 below , the new Visa to attract "digital nomads" was created , but unfortunately regarding income tax nothing changed , meaning that a foreigner staying more than 183 days in any 12 months period in Indonesia should pay income tax over his/her worldwide income .

        Well , it is only my humble opinion : these "Second Home Visa/KITAS/KITAP" will not be popular because of this "deposit" (of : Rp2 billion [US$143,484] deposit for an individual or Rp2.5 billion [US$179,355] for a family.”) + paying tax of the worldwide income .
