Freelancers and remote workers will soon be able to work tax-free in Indonesia, including the island of Bali, thanks to the five-year ‘digital nomad visa
Have you ever heard of a country named “Indonesia,” a full of heaven with so many natural places? The tourism minister of Sandiaga Uno announced that Freelancers and remote workers would soon be able to work tax-free in Indonesia, including the island of Bali, within five years. The fascinating fact is, it’s all tax-free…!! This privilege is given under the title of ‘digital nomad visa.’ At the same time, they estimate that this project will bring in up to 3.6 million overseas travelers and create one million jobs for Indonesians.
Indonesia’s tourism minister Sandiaga Uno hopes that it will bring in up to 3.6 million overseas travelers and create one million jobs for Indonesians
This opportunity was proposed earlier, but due to pandemics, it was delayed. Since it was handled smoothly, the country believes this is the right time to relaunch the idea. There are currently a variety of visas available to those wanting to visit Indonesia, including the Visa on Arrival (VoA), Tourist or Cultural Visa, and the country’s Free Visa, but these only last between 30 and 180 days. However, this ‘digital nomad visa’ doesn’t allow everyone to exception from the taxes. For example, Americans will still have to file taxes if granted one because the US taxes citizens based on citizenship rather than their residence.
From “sun, sea and sand” to “serenity, spirituality and sustainability,” Sandiaga Uno believes it’ll ensure a better impact on the local economy
Uno told the South China Morning Post that he wants Indonesia’s tourism to shift its 3 S’s from “sun, sea, and sand” and instead focus on “serenity, spirituality, and sustainability.” “This way, we’re getting better quality and better impact on the local economy,” he explained.
This may be a dream come true for many freelancers and adventure-seekers, and we can’t wait to see how it works out
Anyhow this idea will bring you to connect with nature while you do your work stuff. Cause Indonesia is a country where you can stay calm and happy. So why don’t you share your thoughts in the comment section?
