What Countries are Currently Offering a Digital Nomad Visa?

With employers allowing people to work at home to protect themselves, and with the remote working experiment being a success, many companies plan to allow people to continue working at home. This leaves us with two problems:

1. Tourist destinations wanting to attract visitors while minimizing the risk of an outbreak

2. Workers looking to travel and work somewhere new outside of their home office

A digital nomad visa is the answer everyone has been looking for.

What is a Digital Nomad Visa?

A digital nomad is someone who works remotely and enjoys travelling. They can be in one country doing one job one week, and in another doing something else the next. While every digital nomad is a remote worker, not every remote worker is a digital nomad. One small problem with being a digital nomad is that tourist visas don’t allow people to work – even remotely – while visiting another country. That’s where a digital nomad visa comes in.

These visas are a cross between a tourism and work visa, letting people stay and work in the short term. They aren’t called “digital nomad visas” officially and might have a unique name, like the “Global Citizen Concierge Program” of the Cayman Islands. They also might not be specifically targeted at digital nomads but are still a great choice for them.

Some digital nomad visas are available for students and workers, but they could have different criteria and costs depending on your situation. The Work From Bermuda Certificate program requires students to provide evidence of their enrolment when applying.
