As thousands of urban professionals choose to move abroad, spectacular residencies and preferential visas offer a unique opportunity to start a new, sustainable life in paradise.
Lombok, Indonesia – The myriad challenges of recent years have motivated many urban professionals to leave Hong Kong and start new lives and careers overseas. After nearly six decades of continuous growth, the population of “Asia’s World City” has fallen by 116,000 in 2020 and 2021, and the exodus is expected to continue in 2022. But while many Hong Kongers are drawn to the West , an exotic Asian destination has the potential to attract a new generation of digital nomads.
Lombok, the idyllic indonesian island, deploys the welcome mat for expatriates. With its lush green interiors, heavenly beaches, sparkling seas and clean air, it’s no surprise that many city dwellers are tempted to leave their compact apartments for a spacious and luxurious pool villa in Lombok. A few years ago, this type of relocation would have seemed impossible. But in the post-pandemic era, with changing mindsets and technological advancements, that vision is becoming a reality for many forward-thinking leaders and entrepreneurs.
To make Lombok even more alluring, the Indonesian government recently announced a new tax-free five-year visa, already dubbed the “digital nomad visa” and should be popular among young footless citizens of the world. Alternatively, another innovative visa system has been created for owners of second homes³, including retirees, attracted by the wonders of Indonesia.
