Tallinn named best city for remote workers


Tallinn has been named the best city for remote workers in a new ranking.

The Estonian capital tops the list thanks in part to its new “digital nomad” visa, which allows workers to settle there for a year provided they meet certain criteria.

Big 7 trip, who came up with the top 50 list, also cited Tallinn’s ‘booming’ digital economy and its low cost of living, with rent in the city center costing around $ 500 (£ 370) per month.

At number two was Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, which also introduced a remote worker visa during the pandemic.

Plus, it’s set up for remote workers through various coworking spaces around the city, and housing is much cheaper than in Western European cities.

Belgrade in Serbia, Bali in Indonesia and Chiang Mai in Thailand rank third, fourth and fifth respectively.

No city in the UK makes the top 50, although several other European destinations do, including Porto and Lisbon in Portugal, Berlin in Germany, Budapest in Hungary and Madrid in Spain.

Big 7 Travel said it compiled the list on the basis of affordability, internet access, coworking spaces, welcoming communities for expats, and considered destinations with specific nomadic digital visas.

Various countries have launched these special visas over the past year as the pandemic has forced many people to work remotely – and has shown that it is entirely possible to do a lot of work from anywhere. in the world.

Antigua and Barbuda, Bermuda and Barbados all introduced their own versions, in addition to Estonia and Georgia.
