“The long-term visa will avoid a repeat of incidents such as the Kristen Gray case by providing a legal umbrella, backed by traditional wisdom and other laws, which can provide certainty for Indonesia-based digital nomads in the near future.”

Sandiaga asserted that Indonesia will open a number of destinations that are popular with foreign travelers, though Indonesia remains off limits to foreign nationals for the time being.

“[Indonesian] destinations such as Bali, Batam Bintan, and other locales under the ASEAN Travel Corridor are expected to be ready over the next few weeks. We are also reviewing e-visas for business and tourist travelers, as it can facilitate the [long-term] visa,” he noted.

Aside from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy and the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health, the Covid-19 Task Force and provincial administrations also contributed their input to the long-term visa.
