Digital Nomad visa

A special five-year visa has been provided for remote employees since early 2021. This visa allows the individuals to work and stay within the country for up to five years with no taxes on the foreign-sourced income.

Sandiaga Uno, the country’s Tourism and Economy Minister, stated that individuals would be taxed if they earn within Indonesia, but the tax is zero if it is solely overseas.

The Minister mentioned that around 95% of surveyed “digital nomads” prefer Indonesia, specifically Bali, as their top priority as their remote work destination.
