Coworking spaces in Bali

Vacation’s over and work beckons. We know the struggle of having to leave the idyllic sand, sun, and surf of Bali for the hustle and bustle of Singapore all too well. But if your work allows you to do it remotely, then maybe you never have to leave paradise.

Technically, all you need is your laptop and a place with fast WiFi. But these places also come with perks such as pool access, networking sessions, and free meals. Here are 10 best coworking spaces in Bali for digital nomads who want to turn from beach bum to beach boss.

1. Biliq Seminyak – Pay-per-minute use from ~S$0.04

Daily, weekly, and monthly passes are a dime a dozen at coworking spaces in Bali. Not so at Biliq Seminyak, which charges by the minute instead.

It’s a nifty system for those who just need a few minutes to fire an email but don’t want to waste an hour at a coworking space. It keeps you productive too, so you know every minute you’ve wasted scrolling through social media is costing you money.

It’ll prove difficult to dilly-dally anyway when the space has been designed to be conducive. There are outdoor and indoor seats, soundproof phone booths for calls, meeting rooms, and private offices for you to get your work done. There’s even a dipping pool with tables attached so at least half your body stays in vacation mode.

In case you weren’t aware, Bali runs on the GMT+8 timezone, which is the same as Singapore’s. That’s all fine and dandy if your colleagues run on the same nine-to-five schedule. But for those who need to answer to honchos spread across Europe and USA, you’ll need a place that’s open past 6pm. Enter Tropical Nomad, which is open 24/7.

Seats are aplenty in each one, ranging from air-conditioned hot desks with ergonomic chairs to hammocks in the garden, and even sun loungers by the pool. Yup, you read that right. All Outpost locations have lap pools available for members. It’s not unusual to see other digital nomads pull up in bikinis and swim trunks so they can quickly dive in after a hard day’s work.

The pools aren’t the only place you’ll see Outpost members socialising. Meet other members of the community through private events, such as welcome lunches that take place weekly for newcomers.

Visas needed to be a digital nomad in Bali for Singaporeans

For stays less than 30 days – No visa required

singapore passport

Good news if you own a Singapore passport. There’s no need to apply for a visa if you’re only going to stay for less than a month. Take note, however, that you won’t be able to extend your stay past the 30 days you’re given.

For stays not longer than 60 days – Visa on Arrival

If you’re planning to stay for 2 months, you can simply apply for a Visa on Arrival (VOA). Thankfully, this can be done on the Indonesian immigration website so you won’t have to spend time queuing up at the VOA counter at the airport.

The visa is valid for 30 days but you can apply for a 30-day extension online. It costs IDR500,000 (~S$43.75) per visa and the extension. You must exit Indonesia after 60 days or face a penalty of IDR1,000,000 (~S$87.45) for every day you overstay. You’re also not allowed re-entry on the same visa should you exit the country during the visa’s validity period.

For stays up to 1 year – B211A Offshore & Onshore Visas

6 months might prove too short a stay for those who are hoping to migrate to Bali for the long term. For stays of up to 1 year, you have the option of the B211A visa. Apply for the B211A Offshore Visa first through the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore.

You’ll have to set up an appointment to submit your documents, such as your passport and a bank statement that shows proof you have at least US$2,000 (~S$2,702.48) in your account. The visa application fee is S$190, which you can pay for online using PayNow or in cash in person.

Approved visas are valid for 60 days from your date of entry into Indonesia. You can extend this visa twice, each for another 60 days, to get 6 months’ stay in total. Each extension costs IDR2,000,000 (~S$175), which you can pay for at any immigration bureau.

Now to stay a further 6 months, you’ll have to apply for the B211A Onshore Visa, which can only be done after your arrival in Indonesia. It works the same as the Offshore Visa, where you’re allowed to stay for 60 days first but you can extend the visa twice for 60 days at a time.

It’s best to apply for the Onshore Visa at least 2 weeks before your Offshore Visa expires, so that it can be processed in time. You could do it yourself through the immigration bureau but you might only be able to get a Tourism Pass, which could limit you from conducting any business. 

bali coworking spaces - arrival in bali
Apply for the Onshore Visa only after you’re staying in Bali.

Your best bet of getting a Business Pass is to apply through a visa agency, which Bali has plenty of. Agencies can provide the necessary paperwork such as guarantor’s letter, as well as act as your sponsor on behalf, so you won’t have to provide a bank statement.

They’ll also help with any visa extensions to help you stay the full 6 months in Bali. Fees vary across agencies but the average is about IDR2,500,000 (~S$218.70) per visa application before any extension.

With the Business Pass, you’ll be allowed to participate in business activities such as meetings to negotiate and sign contracts or even purchase goods for your company. You may not, however, supervise any production activities, such as managing factories. The B211A visas are also for single entry only, and you may not re-enter Indonesia with the same visa.

For stays up to 5 years – Second Home Visa

There’s a more flexible option for those who want to enter and leave the country as and when they wish: the Second Home Visa. It allows holders up to 5 years’ stay in Indonesia, as well as re-entries when needed. You’ll be allowed to conduct remote work under this visa, but not own a business that operates out of Indonesia.

Here’s the catch: applicants have to show proof of funds of at least IDR2,000,000,000 (~S$175,176.40) in a bank account or an equivalent in assets like property. You’ll also need to show that you have enough health or travel insurance coverage to pay for treatment should you catch Covid-19 in Indonesia.

The good news is that this visa arrangement allows immediate family members, sans siblings, to join you as visa dependents. They won’t have to show the same proof of funds during their application, but will need their own health or travel insurance plans.

The main applicant can apply on the Indonesian immigration website, followed by the dependents. Each visa is IDR3,000,000 (~S$263) and there’s no need to apply for an extension once the visa has been granted.

Being a digital nomad in Bali

Bali is great for short weekend getaways but staying long term allows you to really soak in the culture and its people. If you’re out of AL already, then being a digital nomad might afford you the chance to explore the Island of Gods beyond just temple visits and beach clubs.

Heck, maybe this is your chance to get a tattoo from a Balinese artist, finally pick up lessons at a surf school, or even conquer a hiking trail that isn’t Mount Batur.
