With the shift towards remote work becoming a permanent part of employment culture, and the world fighting to win back tourist dollars, countries are starting to target a unique group of travellers.
Digital nomads are on the rise; setting themselves up in other countries and working from their laptops for an extended period of time. Visas used to be the issue with this type of lifestyle; you could traditionally only spend 30 – 90 days in a country as a tourist, and didn’t have the legal right to work.
But that’s all changing, and with 50+ countries now offering generous long term visas specifically for remote workers, the question then becomes which one to choose as your base.
If you’re looking for a country with an affordable cost of living, an amazing healthcare system, incredible places to explore on your days off, and year round sunshine, there’s really only one country to consider; Spain.
Digital nomads are on the rise, especially as the world faces the ‘Great Resignation’ where office workers are starting to resign. The freedom and flexibility of remote work offered during the pandemic has allowed us all to rethink our careers, goals, and work / life balance, and it has become increasingly difficult for employers to bring their teams back into the office.
And why would you? … Return to the office? When you can be working from Italy one month, and Greece the next?
Visas used to be one of the biggest issues for digital nomads, because tourist visas were capped at 30 days, meaning your work routine was constantly disrupted. But now more and more countries are enticing remote workers to stay for an extended period of time, and 50+ countries now offerr generous long term visas.
As a digital nomad, the cost of visas can really add up if you’re moving around a lot. So here we’ve compiled a list of the cheapest.
