Since 2020, many countries have initiated digital nomadic visas as a means of tourist and economic stimulation. Likewise, with the low cost of living and warm climates that many of these countries boast about, people with flexible jobs are also seriously exploring the possibility of digital nomadic visas.
âDigital nomadâ, âremote visaâ or âfreelance visaâ visas are a booming visa stream that combines the benefits of working remotely with the benefit of living abroad.
Holders of digital nomadic visas typically hold a position that gives them the freedom to work regardless of location. Although this job description has traditionally been understood as freelancers or entrepreneurs, a growing number of professions now allow remote working. Some nomadic visas also allow foreigners to subsequently acquire temporary or even permanent residence.
Currently there are around 25 locations that offer some form of digital nomad visa.
