The Immigration Directorate General at the Law and Human Rights Ministry has officially launched a long-stay visa dubbed second home visa for foreigners or former Indonesian citizens. This visa will allow them to stay for 5 or 10 years in the country and carry out various activities including investment.
There are four required documents. First, proof of fund. “In the form of an account belonging to a foreigner or guarantor with a value of at least Rp2 billion or equal,” as read in Immigration’s written statement issued on Wednesday, October 26, 2022.
The other documents are a national passport that is still valid for at least 36 months, a recent color photograph with a size of 4 cm x 6 cm with a white background, and a curriculum vitae.
The applications can be submitted through a website-based application at visa-online.imigrasi.go.id.
The policy is stated in Circular No. IMI-0740.GR.01.01 of 2022 concerning the granting of visas and limited stay permits for second houses issued on Tuesday, October 25, 2022.
Indonesia’s government launched the second home visa policy ahead of the G20 Summit in Bali, November 15-16, 2022. “It is aimed at attracting foreign tourists to Bali and various other destinations,” said Acting Director General of Immigration Widodo Ekatjahjana.
