Discover the Charm of Indonesia with the Second Home Visa: Your Gateway to Long-Term Living

What is the Second Home Visa?

Indonesia, with its stunning natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, is now widely opening its doors to foreign nationals (WNA) who wish to stay longer through the Second Home Visa program. This special visa allows foreign nationals and their families to reside in Indonesia for 5 to 10 years without the intention of working. It is hoped that with this visa, foreign nationals can contribute positively to Indonesia's economy, especially amidst an increasingly dynamic global economic situation.

Activities Allowed for Second Home Visa Holders

For Second Home Visa holders, several activities are permitted, including:

  1. Investing: Becoming an investor and investing in various economic sectors in Indonesia.

  2. Tourism: Enjoying tourist destinations spread across Indonesia.

  3. Retirement: Spending retirement enjoying the atmosphere and lifestyle in Indonesia.

This visa can also be applied for family members such as children, spouses, or parents, allowing them to enjoy living in Indonesia as well.

Requirements and Procedures for Applying for the Second Home Visa

Applications for the Second Home Visa can be submitted for periods of 5 or 10 years through the Online Visa Approval. The main requirements are as follows:

  1. A passport with a minimum validity of 36 months.

  2. Proof of funds:
