New annual visa to Indonesia for remote workers

Colorful Indonesia

In 2024, Indonesia joined the ranks of countries actively modernizing their visa policies.

On the 1st of April this year, the country launched the E33G annual visa program for remote workers.

The island of Bali in Indonesia has long been known to attract digital nomads and remote workers from around the world with its warm climate and affordable cost of living. However, the current visa rules are not very convenient for those wishing to stay in the country for long periods of time. The new visa for digital nomads aims to solve this problem by attracting wealthy expats to the country.

What is known so far:

The E33G visa will be able to be applied for online for up to one year and can be renewed for one further year on expiry.

Eligibility requirements include, but are not limited to, working for a foreign company outside Indonesia, earning a minimum annual income of at least US$60,000 and providing proof of sufficient funds.

Please note that remote worker visa holders in Indonesia are not permitted to work for local companies or engage in income-generating business activities in Indonesia.

Interested applicants will also be required to provide a personal bank account statement of at least $2,000 or equivalent for the last three months, as well as a valid passport and photograph.

The new E33G visa is a multiple-entry visa that allows free entry and exit from the country and provides a number of benefits under the current legislation, such as arranging stay permits for family members, opening a bank account and others.

Thus, the new visa will allow remote employees to fully immerse themselves in Indonesian culture, explore its natural beauty and contribute to the local economy.
