The website of the Directorate General of Immigration, Ministry of Law and Human Rights, has publicly announced the rules surrounding the launch of the much anticipated second home visa policy.

“Towards the implementation of the G20 Summit, today we officially launched the second home visa. The goal is to attract foreign tourists to Bali and various other destinations,” said Acting Director General of Immigration Widodo Ekatjahjana at the launch of a second home visa in Bali, Tuesday (25/10/2022)

It is not mentioned in the article but the IDR 2,000,000,000 funds are to be deposited into an Indonesian bank account. Sounds more like "second money down the drain" than "second home". Your first call will be from the taxman wanting to know where the rest of the money is (Indonesia tax wordwide income).

They want the CV attached to the application but there is no mention about what kind of work is going to be allowed (if any).

I will wait for all the fine details to be hashed out before final judgement.

This is going to replace the retirement visa right? I cannot imagine too many retirees wanting to have 2 billion rupiah kept in an Indonesian bank account.
Yes, this replaces the retirement visa. All current retirement visa holders would have to apply for the new scheme if their visas expire in the next 180 days, or transition to the scheme otherwise (in both cases, proof of funds is required). As currently written, the law is going to be a big problem for many retirees who cannot or don't want to lock Rp. 2 M in an Indonesian bank account. It's still not clear if an agent can front the Rp. 2 M, but one could imagine the fee for this if they can... It's possible, however, that the concern the new scheme is already causing could result in some modifications.

Agree with those waiting to see what really happens once someone has given some consideration to the repercussions of this in the latest of wonderful ideas. After being here over 21 years have seen more of these proposed changes than recalled which either quickly vanish or never come to fruition.

I just wonder what these people are smoking!?

Jokowi comes along and gives all of them a smack on the wrist to get their shit together and deliver on his plan to simplify and rationalize the entire visa process and this is the mess that comes out of it.

This "plan" will fill all the planes home with destitute, homeless pensioners and fill their places with exactly nobody.

Who in his right mind would deposit 2 billion (Mark, not million) of "dead" money in some low rate Indo bank account just to be able to stay for a few years here?

What are they smoking?

Re that article on Baliexpat.com, quoting the Press Release from Imigrasi. The Press Release has now been amended to remove the word "work" from the allowable activities. The 2nd Home Visa/Kitas is definitely not for working in Indonesia. Here's the latest version:

Imigrasi - Press Release 25 Oct 2022
Thanks for clarification as I was wondering what they needed the CV for. So it like B211 extended to 5 or 10 years with the added "benefit" of transferring hard earned USD 130,000 into local bank and exchange the USD using a crap rate into IDR. It will be a miracle if this visa can be obtained without "help" and "sponsorship" from an agent charging a handsome fee. We will see.

Mark was correct with his statement about "2 M" deposit. "M" stands for milyar in Indonesian, meaning billion in English.

By "forcing" existing "Foreign Elderly Tourists" into this new "second home KITAS", there is risk that
a) Many will have or choose to leave on short notice and
b) Fewer will apply in the future.

So what could possibly be the motivation for this new permit scheme? The "Foreign Elderly Tourists" have not contributed to all the shenanigans around Bali and outrage I have read about in the news? So it is not about getting more "quality" tourists.

As the 2 Milyar funds must be frozen until KITAS expire it looks like this new regulation will benefit the banks and their loan to deposit ratio.
- The KITAS holder may get 5% annual interest (IDR 100 Juta per year) that is usually subjected to income tax.
- The bank can lend out equivalent 2 Milyar for (lets say) 10% interest and earn IDR 200 Juta per year. Over 10 years the bank make profit of 1 Milyar for each "Foreign Elderly Tourist"!

Looks like regulation was inspired by banks [make money] and taxation office [more taxes] and BI [more foreign fund inflow]. Nothing that will improve things for "Foreign Elderly Tourists".

And on top, I just renewed my yearly rental contract.....

No panic, as they say in the army "before executing an order, always wait for the counter order"

There will likely be modification, additifs, exemptions, etc ..... once somebody proof read the text.
If not, sur the visa agencies will find a way !

The xenophobes are already up in arms over the new second home visa, stating that "this visa is very dangerous because there will be a massive migration of C...ese citizens and threaten the stability of the country":

This is reported via several less known local news outlets.

Is there some sort of mass hysteria that I missed going on? Has someone legalized weed and not told me?

What is wrong with these people?

Does this guy reckon that millions of Chinese will now rock up, all with $100k trousered to then take over Indonesia by... by ... being Chinese?
