The Directorate General of Immigration at the Law and Human Rights Ministry has officially launched the Second Home Visa policy.
The policy is stated in Circular Number IMI-0740.GR.01.01 of 2022 concerning the granting of visas and limited stay permits for second homes, issued on Tuesday 25th October 2022. Acting Director General of Immigration Widodo Ekatjahjana emphasised that this policy would come into effect 60 days after the circular letter was issued.
“Towards the implementation of the G20 Summit, today we officially launched the Second Home Visa. The goal is to attract foreign tourists to Bali and various other destinations,” he said while at the launch of the policy in Bali on Tuesday.
According to Ekatjahjana, the Second Home Visa is certain for foreigners, including former Indonesian nationals, who want to stay and contribute positively to the Indonesian economy.
With this visa, they can stay for five or 10 years and carry out various non-work activities such as investment, tourism, and others. Applications for a second home visa can be done easily through a website-based application on visa-online.immigration.go.id.
