Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves) Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said the issuance was planned for March 2021 or April 2021 ago.
It is hoped that this long-term visa or long-term visa will be used by foreign tourists and can encourage foreign tourists to invest in Indonesia because they are vacationing in the archipelago for a long time.
Long Term Visa Terms and Policy
The long term stay second home visa concept for a period of 5 years has conditions. One of the conditions, individual foreign tourists must deposit money worth IDR 2 billion. Meanwhile, foreign tourists who bring their families must make a deposit of IDR 2.5 billion. Visa can be renewed every 5 years.
The long-term visa policy is also in line with the government’s preparations to open the travel bubble and the ASEAN Travel Corridor. Some of the arrival gates that have been prepared are Bali, Batam and Bintan.
Choice of Travel Destinations For Long Term Visas
The long-term visa program for foreign tourists can only enter through an existing travel corridor (travel corridor and Safe travel corridor arrangement).
Tourist destinations that can be visited are Ubud, Nusa Dua, and Sanur in Bali, as well as Nongsa Point and Lagoi in the Riau Islands.
Long Term Visa for Nomad Staycation
Currently, long term visas or long stay visas are very important to be considered by digital nomads for staycations.
A digital nomad is someone who works independently of time and place. This is so very popular right now considering the work from home activity during the pandemic. Related to this, a staycation in Bali can be applied.
The emergence of this trend is because the Covid-19 pandemic has changed people’s lifestyles. Those who originally had to work in the office became free without being limited by space and time.
Expected to encourage Small and Medium Enterprises
Not only targeting nomad staycations, this long-term visa is also expected to encourage the economy of small and medium enterprises in Indonesia.
This is related to the large number of foreign tourists who stay in Indonesia on a long term basis through the long term visa program or Indonesia second home.
With this visa, the quality of Indonesian tourism will increase in terms of the length of visit and the amount of expenditure or the economic impact that is felt by the local economic community.
E-Visa For Long Term Visa
Improved e-visa services which greatly assist in the ease of obtaining visas for businessmen and foreign tourists who wish to apply for long stay visas in Indonesia.
And consideration is given to special treatment for Asean countries that already have a Travel Arrangement agreement with Indonesia.
It is hoped that there will be reciprocity in which these countries also exempt visas for Indonesian citizens.
In line with this, all Ministries of Tourism and Creative Economy Kemenparekraf require data from foreign tourists to complement big data and in the context of preparing a more targeted and segmented socialization plan.
