What is a Digital Nomad Visa?

A digital nomad visa is a type of visa that allows remote workers to live and work in a foreign country without the need to secure local employment. These visas cater to freelancers, entrepreneurs, and employees of foreign companies, offering a legal way to stay in a country while continuing their remote work.

Why Countries are Offering Digital Nomad Visas?

Countries are increasingly offering digital nomad visas to boost their economies by attracting foreign income without taking jobs from locals. Digital nomads contribute to the local economy through living expenses, tourism, and sometimes even business investments. For digital nomads, these visas provide an opportunity to live in new environments, experience different cultures, and work from inspiring locations.
