In addition, Mr Uno said the decision was based on research that showed Indonesia was “on top” for 95% of remote workers who participated in the survey. He also said that a similar scheme for digital nomad visas was in place last year, though it had to be put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Now that we have handled the pandemic and cooperated with all the ministries involved and the immigration office on the health side, we believe it is the right time to reconsider this idea,” he said.
Currently, there are different types of visas available for remote workers wishing to visit Indonesia, including Visa on Arrival (VOA), Tourist of Cultural Visa and Free Country Visa. However, it only lasts for 30 to 180 days. The new visa scheme will allow its holders to stay for five years without paying taxes, but only if they do not receive their income in Indonesia.
