Indonesia wants to attract foreign investors by issuing so-called golden visas. Depending on the amount invested, lenders can stay in the country for a certain period of several years.
In het kort
- Indonesië wil buitenlandse investeerders aantrekken met gouden visa.
- Hoe hoger het geïnvesteerde bedrag, hoe langer het toegestane verblijf.
- Het gouden visum geeft exclusieve voordelen en vervangt de tijdelijke verblijfsvergunning.
Buying shares of Indonesian companies or government bonds is considered an investment, as is investing in a savings account or deposits in the country. The higher the amount, the longer the period of stay allowed.
For example, a person who invests $350,000 is eligible for a five-year residency. In the amount of 700 thousand dollars, or ten years. Through this step, Indonesia wants to stimulate the country’s economy.
Golden visa holders are expected to be able to enjoy exclusive benefits. This means that they no longer have to apply for a temporary residence permit. Last year, Indonesia introduced a “second home visa” for wealthy tourists who have at least 2 billion Indonesian rupiah (121,000 euros) in their bank accounts.
Indonesia is not the first country to issue golden visas. The United States, Ireland, New Zealand and Spain have introduced similar visas to attract foreign capital and high-net-worth residents.
