Indonesia’s E-visa Trends to Initiate Job Opportunities in the Tourism Industry

The dire need to initiate contactless visa application process amid Covid-19 has encouraged governments all over the world to spread knowledge about usage of electronic visas. Although paced by the coming of Covid, changing e-visa trends are sure to benefit both governments and customers. By using the e-visas, governments can save on infrastructure and manpower costs while encouraging tourist arrivals due to easy visa application.

Following the same idea, the Indonesia’s Law and Human Rights Ministry has launched e-visa application for attracting foreign citizens. Interested travellers can apply for the visa at the country’s official website. As per the Law and Human Rights Minister of Indonesia — Yasonna Laoly, the visa will facilitate a faster, easier and more transparent entry permit service.

Speaking about the changing e-visa trends, Laoly said, “This is to bring a positive message to [other countries] that Indonesia has made bureaucratic reforms and is ready to become a destination for foreign investment”. With the launch of this new policy, the Indonesian government is aiming to work on the country’s economic recovery by creating jobs via international tourism and foreign investment.

The policy has received extended appreciation from Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi and Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Wishnutama. The officials are optimistic about luring visitors without compromising on safety and border security issues. To ease the process further, the Law and Human Rights Ministry has introduced the Law and Human Rights Research Information System application.

Indonesia relaxed its borders for foreign visitors on October 1, thereby permitting visa holders and limited stay visa holders to enter the country. Here’s a list of things you must have for a smooth visa application process –

Following recent discussions, Indonesia will be joining Singapore to initiate a reciprocal green lane (RGL) with an aim to restore bilateral travel links between the two countries. With the RGL and changing e-visa trends, opportunities for business and diplomatic travel will also be created.

Based on market trends post the pandemic, it is certain that the RGL won’t lead to immediate openings of business or general travel, but would surely boost tourist confidence. In case, some organisations use the RGL for expanding business, the tourism sector will be able to generate extensive job opportunities too.

As per pre-pandemic records, nearly 3.1 million Indonesians visited Singapore and 1.9 million Singaporeans visited Indonesia in 2019. However, the tourism industry of both the countries have been badly hit post Covid.
