Good news for all Indian travellers! Indonesia, a popular Southeast Asian holiday destination for Indians, is all set to introduce its Golden Visa program by the end of this year.
The initiative will extend Golden Visa benefits to tourists visiting the country. With this decision, Indonesia joins the ranks of various nations, such as Mexico, Greece, Canada, Costa Rica, and Sri Lanka, which offer extended visas to visitors making substantial financial commitments.
What is a Golden Visa?
Under this policy, foreign individuals and international companies making substantial investments in Indonesia through commerce or tourism will be exempt from visa requirements.
The Golden Visa policy will offer validity periods of five and ten years. Among the notable advantages of this visa category is the implementation of faster and more efficient procedures. Additionally, the Golden Visa will grant long-term visitors the ability to possess property in Indonesia.
Renowned for its cultural diversity and captivating landscapes, Indonesia is a coveted travel destination with its array of volcanoes and a constellation of 17,000 distinct islands.
