Airbnb announced its partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia. As Bali is one of the main hotspots for digital nomads and remote workers, for Airbnb and the government of Indonesia, it’s an opportunity to promote the island and improve its remote work infrastructure.
Indonesia is part of the Live and Work Anywhere partnership, and Airbnb will further partner with MTCE to promote educational campaigns for responsible traveling for remote workers.
Airbnb and Indonesia´s Partnership
Mich Goh, the Head of Public Policy, said that through this partnership, it’s easier for millions of people to access and discover Bali’s remote work ecosystem and everything the location has to offer. This is a possibility to generate “greater economic opportunities.”
The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia shared that as international travel resumes, Indonesia wants to welcome tourists, including digital nomads who wish to say longer.
With the B211A visa, remote workers can work and live in Indonesia for 6 months without paying taxes.
