“Airbnb is partnering with the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, promoting Bali as part of our Live and Work Anywhere program, designed to highlight outstanding global destinations for remote working .

In September, digital nomads were able to apply for a B211A visa, which allows tourists to work in the country for six months without paying income tax.
Airbnb’s Bali Digital Nomad page recommends the perfect staycations, weather advice, visa requirements, phone and internet information, and local customs.

Airbnb’s public policy division chief for Southeast Asia, Mich Goh, said the partnership should help attract millions of remote workers to Bali. He also mentioned the importance of promoting the lesser-known areas of Bali, such as Banjar and the Nusa Islands, to entice people to stay in those areas as well.
