Bali has seen great growth in property prices in the past decade, mainly thanks to increasingly more tourists and foreign property buyers.

The property market slowed down in 2017, but overall, the growth remained above the national average level. More than 30,000 expats live in Bali and with most people investing in beach-side luxury villas.

As a result, prices are higher compared to other places in Indonesia as the market mostly caters to the high-end segment, where people tend to focus on luxury villas.

The prices of luxury villas have almost doubled from 2013 to 2018. In some cases, prices even tripled, based on location and the distance to popular beaches.

Bali’s property market is expected to perform well in the future, thanks to the increased threshold before the luxury property tax of 20% kicks in (from around USD 1.4 million to USD 2.1 billion) and future economic growth.

How was the market affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020?

According to local experts, freehold prices have decreased by as much as 25% in places like Bali during the pandemic.

In Jakarta, on the other hand, the sales for landed houses have decreased by around 20% compared to the second half of 2019. With tougher lending policies implemented by the government, we have also seen a reduced demand.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that the government now comes up with new initiatives to relax ownership regulations to boost foreign investments.

But there’s also light in the tunnel, as they say. Cushman & Wakefield mentions that we see an increased interest in new tourist destinations, including Lombok, Labuan Bajo, and even Raja Ampat in Papua.

The demand for Indonesian real estate will undoubtedly increase if the government can manage to make it easier for foreigners to buy, hold, and sell real estate in the country.

Implementation of Visa on Arrival, Nearly 15,000 Foreign Tourists Visit Bali

JAKARTA - The application of visa on arrival (VoA) which has been going on since early March 2022 has succeeded in bringing nearly 15,000 foreign tourists to the island of Bali. Deputy for Strategic Policy at the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) Nia Niscaya said this was an effect of making it easier for foreign tourists to come using VoA. "From the beginning, there were almost 15,000 tourists, especially in Bali, until the 26th. Most VoA users come from Australia, Singapore, the United States, France and England," Nia said in the Ministry of Tourism's Weekly Press Briefing, Monday (28/3/2022).Nia assessed that the VoA policy was more effective than an electronic visa or e-visa in terms of bringing in foreign tourists.“It is very clear that the growth of foreign tourists visiting was when it was still an e-visa and then VoA. There are numbers that get e-visas in one month, while VoA is only for one week," he explained. On the same occasion, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno said government policies had a positive impact on the level of foreign tourists visiting. "This is a policy that is right on target, has the right benefits, and is on time. And Alhamdulillah, it did not trigger an increase in Covid-19 cases," said Sandi.Currently, there are 42 countries that have access to VoA, making it easier for them to visit Indonesia. The increasing number of visits is expected to be a momentum for economic revival for Indonesia. "Surely this is a new optimism, momentum for our economic revival and can open up business opportunities and jobs," said the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy. The government plans to expand VoA facilities to several other entrances in Indonesia, including Medan Kualanamu Airport, Soekarno-Hatta Tangerang-Banten, Juanda Surabaya, Sultan Hasanuddin Makassar, and Sam Ratulangi Manado. Source :
