I was thinking of using this post to gather more information from the community on Visa requirements and/or incentives for Digital Nomads who might be thinking of spending some time in a new country – or hopping from one to one.
There have been a few great posts about this here by some of our Digital Nomads.
For example, in this post, called ‘More Cities will soon offer cash incentives for Digital Nomads’, @annarogers mentions that a few US cities have launched incentive programs that offer remote workers cash to relocate there. And in the same post @ashleythomas mentioned that most cities that offer these incentives are in the US. Does anyone know if this happens in other countries, or, like @ineation wondered, if they would be open to offering this to foreigners?
Ashley also wrote this post right here about Barbados’ 12-Month Welcome Stamp for remote workers and wondered what factors go into consideration while picking an ideal remote working destination, like property prices, internet speed and costs, access to coffee shops & co-working spaces, and access to public services, which got me thinking that we shouldn’t think only of countries offering incentives.
What factors did you take into consideration when moving to a new country? What was your experience like? How did you get to stay in a new country for longer than a regular tourist visa allows?
I’d also like to add external links on this subject here, so please if you find any relevant information please feel free to share in this post 😊
