Indonesia has a new digital nomad visa

Indonesia has introduced a new visa targeted at digital nomads and remote workers who would like to call Bali, or anywhere in Indonesia home for a while.

It’s called the E33G remote worker visa. And it promises to keep Indonesia a popular destination for those of us who are lucky enough to work online.

Read on to find out more about this new visa opportunity and if it is the right choice for you.

E33G Remote Worker Visa Overview

The E33G remote worker visa allows applicants to legally live and work from Indonesia for one year.

Being a multiple entry visa, you will be able to come and go with a minimum of fuss. Perfect for those who get itchy feet after a while. Or if you just want to pop over to a neighboring country for the weekend.

This digital nomad visa is family friendly which is great to see, as not all digital nomads are in their 20s. With that you can bring eligible family members with you.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for the E33G you need to be working for a company that is based outside of Indonesia. This can be your own company, as long as it is registered in another country.

You aren’t allowed to conduct business with Indonesia or receive payments from Indonesian people or companies. For that you would need a KITAS visa.

The biggest criteria point that everyone will want to know is the income requirement. To be eligible you must have a minimum income equivalent to USD 60,000.

In addition, you will need to provide bank statements for the last three months showing that your balance never went below $2,000.

What else is required for the E33G visa application?

You will need to supply a copy of your current employment contract, showing that you work or provide work for a foreign company.

Other items that will need to be included with the visa application include a recent photograph, a copy or your resume (CV), and your travel itinerary.

Who is the E33G visa suited to?

With an income requirement of $60,000 – which is a long way above what is required to live in Indonesia, this visa is aimed at established digital nomads and remote workers who are working full time for companies based in developed countries like the US, UK and Australia.

For those seeking to work in Bali and Indonesia, this visa provides an easy and compliant way to base themselves there.

Slow travelers who prefer stability and enjoy forming deeper connections with the places they visit will find this option ideal.

Other visa options for remote workers in Asia

If this visa isn’t for you, or if you are looking for other options that will compliment this visa, here are some options:

Another way of living in Indonesia for an extended period of time is the Second Home Visa. This is a good option for those that have savings, but don’t satisfy the income requirement.

Thailand has their version of the digital nomad visa, known as the LTR visa.

Japan launched their digital nomad visa in 2024. This allows remote workers to reside in Japan for 6 months at a time.

And for those digital nomads that are early on in their careers, or semi-retired and scaling back, Malaysia has the DE Rantau Nomad Pass. This one is open to remote workers that earn at least $2,000 per month.
