“Ahead of the G20 summit today, we officially launched the second home visa. The goal is to attract foreign tourists to Bali and other places. This immigration policy is one of the non-fiscal incentives that may encourage some foreigners to stay and contribute positively to the Indonesian economy in an increasingly dynamic global economic environment. This special visa is issued to encourage the growth of investment in Indonesia for billionaires, the rich of the world, investors who want to stay longer in Indonesia.” – Jar Widodo Ekatjahjana, Director General of Immigration.
The second home visa will also target other groups: Global Talent leaders, Indonesian diasporas, and older international tourists.
