The covid19 pandemic has helped to form a new way of working, ie, Work from Home.
While thousands of organisations are set up and continue asking their employees to work from home, several other tourist destinations are offering interesting remote working programs.
Among these, the tourist destination of Bali in Indonesia is offering digital nomads with a five-year visa where it plans to attract people from all over the world.
After Spain, Estonia and Venice, Indonesia, a prominent beach destination has introduced such a visa program for people working from home.
By introducing this visa, Bali will try and lure longer-staying and higher-spending visitors back to its islands.
The five-year digital nomad visa is expected to be launched soon by the government and now that several destinations are reopening, the government is planning to bring back tourists to improve the local economy.
As global firms are opting for work from anywhere policy, this might be the right time for digital nomads to explore and work from the famous Island nation.
“The sporting events, five-year visa program and ecological tourism are being created for remote workers. And these should bring some 3.6 million (nearly 36 lakh), international tourists, back to the beach nation.” Said Indonesian Tourism Minister, Sandiaga Uno.
“This should help create over 1 million (10 lakh) jobs for Indonesians,” he continued.
The government has said that digital nomads will be exempted from paying any taxes on income earned from any other country except Indonesia, a move that is surely going to attract people.
The government of Indonesia has removed all of the covid-related restrictions and on May 18th, the government also lifted the requirement of RT-PCR test requirement for tourists to enter the pristine location.
