If you have a shared lease etc it should be relatively straight forward actually

It's much harder if you're a digital nomad

I own the apartment we live in, but it's only my name on the papers - would this be a problem?

I did this years ago for my wife (now ex-wife), maybe around 2012. it was pretty straightforward, the main thing they wanted to see was that our relationship was genuine so we had to provide things like emails and online chats, photos etc. Obviously they didn't demand we show this stuff but we found it in our interest to do it.

    This used to be the hotspot for digital nomads in Bali until 2016 when Canggu took over. Itโ€™s more deserted now and mostly filled with Chinese tourbuses, older Euro families and some yoga girls and yogiโ€™s. Not as hip as it once was. Who knows when it will make a revival. I hope.

    Beautiful location but it's just way too expensive. You need to work full time at a tech company here to really afford it. It's also quite small. The divide between rich and poor is obscene, including a lot of homeless and many people asking for money all over. The tech workers who dominate the transplant crowd that you'll be around are mostly workaholic spoiled privileged people full of themselves, not the type I enjoy hanging out with. All the artsy, alternative, and activist types the city used to be known for either live in Oakland or left. The gender ratio is way too heavy on single males, so good luck getting a date, let alone a long term relationship, if you're a straight guy. Obviously, Internet speeds are great, plenty of spots to work from. Nightlife is pretty lackluster as you can imagine.
