Ultimate Guide to Countries Who Offer Digital Nomad Visa to Work Remotely

The possibility of remotely working from another country as a digital nomad is an exciting development that many remote work professionals should look into. With the threat of COVID-19 slowly lifting in some regions, some digital nomad countries are opening applications for digital nomad visas to professionals who want to stay a year or even more in the new country.

The digital nomad visa, also affectionately called the freelancer’s visa, is granted to working nomads who own location-independent businesses. Working nomads must operate their businesses from remote locations through telecommunications technology, and there are also income requirements that vary, depending on the countries offering the digital nomad visas. If you meet certain digital nomad countries’ requirements, there is a high probability of being approved for a remote worker visa or digital nomad visa.

1. Thailand

Expats have always loved Thailand. The cost of living in the country is very affordable, too. Professionals will need just $1,500/month to live comfortably in the country. Presently, Thailand is gearing up to offer its version of the digital nomad Thailand visa or remote worker visa.

There isn’t a formal digital nomad Thailand visa yet, as digital nomads are already welcome to stay as long as they fulfill the working requirements while working on their businesses while in Thailand. Digital nomads are already allowed to use co-working spaces to manage their businesses registered outside the Kingdom with digital nomad visas.

Digital nomads are essentially defined as professionals who do not compete with Thai talent and professionals; they do not need a working permit to work on a business that they’ve already been working on outside their country of residence. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand issues various visas, including non-immigrant visas. Official news indicates that there will be amendments to the Thai SMART Visa to be issued to location-independent professionals as the digital nomad Thai visa.

2. Estonia

There’s a good reason why there’s the demand for digital nomad visa Estonia: this is one region in Europe that offers both a lower cost of living and breathtaking cities. The country’s government had already launched the Estonia digital nomad visa late last year.

The Estonia digital nomad visa will allow working nomads to legally work in the country if they have businesses registered abroad or work for clients that mostly live outside of Estonia.

As of August 1, 2020, location-independent workers have been applying to work for up to a year in the country without skirting the law (i.e., using a tourist visa instead of a proper digital nomad visa).

The current income threshold is €3504 monthly. As of this writing, there are COVID-19-related restrictions for applying for a digital nomad visa in Estonia, so it’s best to sign up for Estonia’s alerts to find out if they’re accepting applicants from the US (or your country).

3. Portugal

The Portugal digital nomad visa is certainly one of the most sought-after because it has opened an actual village to accommodate digital nomads. The digital nomad village is called Ponta do Sol and is located in the autonomous region of Madeira. You can apply for a spot there as we speak if you desire to wake up every morning to breathtaking views of the sea. You can also talk to the Ponta do Sol team here. Madeira is a leading island destination in Europe, too.

Digital nomads who live outside of the European Union need to apply for a Schengen visa or short stay visa – this is effectively the digital nomad visa. A total of 26 countries (also called the Shengen states) in the European Union issue Schengen visas for short periods of stay.

Portugal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issues different types of temporary residency visas, and should you be approved for one; you can use that as your Portugal digital nomad visa.  The cost of living in Portugal is relatively affordable; a couple can subside on $2,000/month in any major city.

4. Croatia

Croatia is a beautiful, high-income country that ranks high in quality of life. The nation is steeped in beautiful sights, history, and culture. Bordered by Hungary and Slovenia, Croatia is the perfect place for people who want to experience Europe while proximate to the Adriatic Sea. Without rent, the cost of living in this country for a single digital nomad is about $745/month.

The Croatia digital nomad visa is a recent development and was spurred on by Estonia’s successful digital nomad visa program. You can find the Croatia digital nomad visa application form here.  Some things you have to know about the Croatia digital nomad visa are: you can only remain for a maximum of 1 year, you must be a third-country national who owns a company that does not reside in Croatia, and it must have zero Croatian employees, and you must also show a bank statement (savings) as well as proof of income.

5. Georgia

Georgia is an exquisitely beautiful country in Eastern Europe, and while it’s not super popular yet, it’s bound to become one of the top picks of freelancers. The cost of living in this side of Eastern Europe is very attractive indeed: you only have to set aside $435-$760/month to live comfortably. Georgia doesn’t have a digital nomad visa yet, but the government has already invited qualified freelancers to travel to the corona virus-free country to work there.

Georgia’s digital nomad visa is already being developed. Foreign nationals who wish to travel and work in the country will be asked to complete a mandatory application form. Should the nomad visa be finally offered to foreign nationals, all applicants must first obtain preliminary confirmation from the government. Those who will be staying longer must self-quarantine for fourteen days at their expense.  

6. Mexico

When COVID-19 becomes more manageable, many freelancers will surely go to Mexico for a finer time doing remote work. There is no nomad visa yet, but the requirements for any future digital nomad visa will likely be aligned with the country’s current income requirements.

Some years ago, the Mexican government decided to decouple some old rules on the income requirements and instead used the UMA measure for foreign nationals who wish to apply for residency permits. A residency visa requirements also include having a stable monthly income and savings in the bank. The baseline cost for living in Mexico is about $745/month.

7. Antigua & Barbuda

Antigua & Barbuda is a Caribbean country that is perfectly situated between the Atlantic and the Pacific. Surrounded by miles and miles of ocean, the two islands that comprise this nation are a perfect getaway for digital nomads. As of this writing, digital nomads may apply for nomad residency at Antigua & Barbuda.

Antigua & Barbuda’s digital nomad visa is called the NDR visa, and it is designed specifically for people who work remotely and have a registered business in another country.

The digital nomad may either be self-employed or employed and pay income taxes in his country of residence. Your work must be carried out through mobile technology.

The digital nomad visa does not provide the digital nomad the right to apply for a job in the country. If a person is approved, the NDR visa will allow the digital nomad to stay and fly out or stay in the country for two years. Living in this country is a nominal $700/month if you choose to stay in city centers. The application form can be found here.

8. Barbados

Located in the Lesser Antilles, Barbados is another dreamy getaway for tourists and, now, digital nomads. Barbados has opened its doors to digital nomads who want to get away from the pandemic while staying productive in one of the most beautiful locations in the Caribbean. Barbados presently offers a twelve-month “Barbados Welcome Stamp” for remote workers.

The Barbados Welcome Stamp can be renewed upon expiry. Talk about living next to the beach while being hyper-productive! View the application form here.

The requirements for working in Barbados as a digital nomad are: a passport-sized picture, proof of relationship to dependents (if any), and a biodata page of your passport. The fee for individuals is $2,000, while a “family bundle” rate is offered for family units ($3,000).

According to the Barbados government, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused tremendous difficulties to people, but it has also opened new opportunities. The purpose of the Barbados Welcome Stamp is to welcome remote workers and other location-independent professionals and business owners to enjoy a less stressful working environment while avoiding COVID-19.

Barbados is a good destination for digital nomads who can set up office remotely if you want a sunny destination close to the beach. Barbados is cosmopolitan, and the cost of living is about $1,000/month only.

9. Bermuda

Bermuda is a British territory situated in the Atlantic. The island has always been open to tourism. Like other island destinations, it has always been attractive to digital nomads and other travelers who wish to situate themselves in an island location. The island has opened its borders and is welcoming tourists and digital nomads again. The “Work from Bermuda” program is the equivalent of the digital nomad visa.

Fill up the application form for the program, and you will get a response in five days. You must pay a one-time fee of $263 once approved. Note that you will be applying specifically for a Work from Bermuda One Year Residential Certificate.

The requirements for this digital nomad visa are: you must be at least 18 years old, must not have committed a crime in Bermuda or any other nation, possess valid health insurance, be the owner of a business registered outside Bermuda, or is self-employed as a remote worker, and most importantly, must show proof of consistent annual income.

The cost of living in Bermuda is higher than in New York and most US cities. The average monthly cost of living has been estimated at $5,000. One Bermudian dollar is equal to one US dollar.

10. Cayman Islands

One of the best perks of being a digital nomad is having the flexibility to live and work from anywhere. If given the choice, most of us would choose a tropical location where we can enjoy the sun all year round!

The Caribbean can be a wonderful place to live if you are craving the island lifestyle. That is why when I was given the opportunity to visit St. Croix, I could not resist the opportunity to find out what it is like to become a digital nomad in the Caribbean.

Although many Caribbean islands are well-known destinations, St. Croix – located in the U.S Virgin Islands is still undiscovered by many. I wanted to find out first-hand what it is like living in St. Croix through the eyes of remote workers and how they are able to make their lifestyle in this beautiful island sustainable.

I was lucky enough to be taken around by a Caribbean transplant, Sara Zuckerman founder of uncommonmama.com who has become a permanent resident of the area along with her son and husband who is a local to the island.

Sara was able to show me all the local spots that are essential to the island life and how to make moving to St. Croix sustainable by finding the right online jobs in the Caribbean.

There are plenty of jobs online that you can take with you on the road, which can make living in St. Croix possible. Visiting online job boards like Fiveer can be a great place to start to post your skills and find the best clients.

Once you have found the right Caribbean online jobs, then it is time to figure out how to live in St. Croix as a digital nomad. Below are the best resources you will need in order to become a remote worker in St. Croix.

Where to stay for short term accommodations  

Before deciding if Caribbean living is right for you, go for a nice visit and stay at these beautiful hotels.

Caravelle Hotel and Casino

Located in Christiansted, Caravelle Hotel and Casino is one of the best choices for accommodations in St. Croix. This lovely hotel has been recently renovated and only steps away from the Christiansted boardwalk with breathtaking ocean views. The hotel is close to the center of town and you will be walking distance to all the shops and incredible local restaurants. If you want to enjoy the ocean view with a great cocktail, try Rum Runners, a dining room and bar that is attached to the hotel.

Rum Runners at Caravelle Hotel

The Hotel is also attached to a casino where you can play while you stay. So, whether you want to relax, play, enjoy the local vibe or all of the above, Caravelle Hotel and Casino is the right place to be at the center of everything!

Another great option is the Company House Hotel which is a boutique hotel with modern amenities that sits beside historic Caribbean buildings. The hotel is at the heart of Christiansted and is great accommodation for working nomads who are ready to explore while having business travel amenities.

Where to stay – long term accommodations

If you have visited the island and now feel a strong pull to stay, getting long-term accommodation is a must. Walking around the island and familiarizing yourself with the specific areas is the best way to figure out which part of the island you can live in. Walking around and introducing yourself to the locals and transplants will also be a great way to find digital nomad communities who could help you find long term accommodations in St. Croix.

There are two main towns, Frederiksted on the western end and Christiansted on the northeast part of the island.

Christiansted is the bigger of the island’s two cities. It is famous for its colorful homes that have been transformed into shops, restaurants and hotels. You will also find the beautifully preserved Fort Christiansvaern built by the Danish in 1749. Christiansted also has the charming boardwalk in the downtown harbor that will give you easy access to the landmark Caravelle Hotel and Casino.

Frederiksted is a quieter town but does liven up when the occasional cruise ship lands making the port packed with vendors and tourists. Frederiksted is also a popular destination for locals and vacationers looking for aquatic adventures such as scuba diving and snorkeling.  You can also find the popular Rainbow Beach which is a great place to do water sports or to chill at the Rhythms Rainbow Beach Bar.

Once you have figured out which town you want to live in, try contacting AirBNB or Vrbo hosts to see if they would be willing to let you stay for a longer period of time and even negotiate the price so you can cut down the cost of living St. Croix.  

Café’s with WIFI

Living in St. Croix does not always mean it is all play, work has to get done, and what better way to do it than by finding the best Café’s that will also give you reliable WIFI.

The top cafe’s for digital nomads:

Christiansted

Grounded Café: this newly renovated café on Strand Street is centrally located and has a working table at the back where you can have uninterrupted work time.

Twin City Coffee House and Gallery:  Twin City has a great selection of breakfast and other goodies that will keep your belly happy while working remotely.

Frederiksted

Rhythms at Rainbow Beach: we often see the typical digital nomad images of people working at the beach, but I can tell you first hand that this is often false and just for the “gram”. However, working at Rhythms at Rainbow Beach is the closest thing you can get to working at the beach. With the water just a few feet away, and the ocean breeze giving you the most relaxing vibes, it will feel like a real dream coming true and will remind you why you live/stayed in this beautiful island as a digital nomad in the first place.

Rise Caribbean: is a true digital nomad’s paradise where you can not only work and eat great food but also meet and be a part of a digital nomad community.

Local Food

Harvey’s

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of fresh food and variety that was available on the island. My all-time favorite local dish that I’ve tried was the conch with butter sauce at the well-known restaurant Harvey’s which has been family owned for over 33 years. Do not forget to try their home-made fresh juices, especially the ginger beer. You will keep coming back for more! Also, make sure to speak with Rich, who is one of the owners and ask him about the story behind the pictures on the walls.

Rich and Mom Sara, owner’s of Harvey’s

Other restaurants recommended by Locals:

Too Chez: a local favorite that serves delicious and fresh food.

Un Amore: this Italian restaurant gets rave reviews from visitors and locals alike. They specialize in handmade pasta, Napolean style pizza and other classic Italian dishes.   

Other things you need to know before relocating to St. Croix.

Do you need a passport and a working Visa?

Since St Croix is part of the United States territories, you do not need a passport when traveling to the island or a working visa to gain employment. St. Croix does have the same immigration laws as the mainland so if you are not a United States citizen, make sure to bring your passport, and working visa if you decide to stay and find Caribbean jobs online.  

What is the currency?

The currency is the US dollar.

Do you need a car to get around the island?

Although there is public transportation, having a car will still be the most convenient and cost-efficient if you are planning to do long term stay. Take note that people drive on the left-hand side of the road, so be careful if you are not used to driving on the other side.

For a small island, St. Croix has an incredible variety of activities and an active community that will allow you to fully enjoy Caribbean living. It also has a unique vibe that allows you to feel like home from the moment you step foot on the island. So go visit and see if it is the right place for you!

Digital Nomad Destinations: 6 Ultimate Things to do for your Key West Holidays

If you think Florida is just for visiting Disney world, think again. Since living here the last few months, I have discovered what the sunshine state has to offer and I simply cannot get enough.

One of my favorite spots to explore is Key West, you do not need a passport when visiting this island paradise, but it will feel like you are in the Caribbean. Famous for its beautiful beaches, romantic venues, and spectacular views, Key West should be on everyone’s vacation list.


The best time to visit:

Key West has a ton of activities to do in all season but the best time to visit is generally between March and May. The weather is perfect with temperatures averaging in the 70’s and 80’s. The winter crowds have also tapered off and the hotel rates will be a lot reasonable, so make sure you take advantage of them.

Getting to the southernmost point of the United States is a ton of fun if you decide to get there by car.

You will see the most scenic views of the other islands and go on bridges that stretch for miles. Maybe you will even be surprised by dolphins while on the bridge.

If you are coming from Miami, the drive will take approximately 3 hours and from Fort Lauderdale around 4 hours.

The easiest way to get to the Keys is through the Florida interstate, you will pay tolls along the way via ticketed booths. I suggest buying a Sun Pass to get a discount on the tolls. You can buy the passes in any Publix supermarket.

If you decide to stay in the Old town or historic district of Key West you will not be needing your car very often since everything is walking distance.

By Sea:

There is only one ferry option to Key West that leaves from Ft. Myers and is a full day sail with overnight options available.

You can check out the trip schedule at the Key West Express ferry.

Stay at Sunset Key Cottages to experience the luxury of island living. Be sure to reserve a cottage with an ocean view and be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves.

Take advantage of the island by doing some star gazing at night and wake up to the beautiful sunrise while enjoying the private beach all to yourself. The water is so warm that it’ll be hard to get out!

Craving some amazing seafood? Make a reservation at Latitudes where every dish is mouth-wateringly delicious. Any seafood on the menu is a must try, when it comes to dessert make sure to order the mango creme brulee and the key lime pie, I guarantee they will be some of the best desserts you will ever eat!

If you are planning to visit the restaurant, be sure to make a reservation beforehand otherwise, you will not be permitted to go aboard the ferry (unless you are staying at Sunset Key Cottages). So plan ahead.

Ferry schedule to and from the island:

The ferry leaves Margaritaville Key West resort for Sunset Key at 15 minutes before and after the hour.

From Sunset Key to Margaritaville on the hour and the half hour. The ferry trip is approximately 10 minutes.

One of the hidden secrets of Key West is their vintage feel movie theaters. Our favorite is Cinema Tropic, an independent theater created with art deco design to represent old Hollywood and contemporary cinema.

Top 5 Swimming Holes near New York City to beat the heat!

Summer is almost here in New York and if you have been here during this season, you will know that the humidity can be unbearable. I wake up every morning wishing I can just jump into a pool.

The problem is, unless you live in a penthouse, join an expensive gym or know someone who has an awesome kiddie pool in their backyard, you aintgunna have that refreshing feeling.

This summer I promised myself that I would find the most beautiful swimming spots near and around New York City and guess what?! I was able to find them folks! I didn’t have to sneak into a luxury apartment building, check in a swanky hotel or blow up a nice kiddie pool in the backyard to do it either.

Before we get to the fun part, I just wanted to give a little reminder that if you do visit these amazing spots, please be respectful of the environment.  Carry out what you bring in, be respectful of the locals and others visiting the area.

So here we go! Below are my top 5 favorite swimming spots. If the refreshingly cool water won’t get you there, the views will!

Kaaterskill Falls

Location: Catskill Mountains, Hunter (town), New York

Highlights: Tallest 2 tier waterfall in New York.

swimming in new york

I stumbled upon this beautiful 2 tier waterfall over 10 years ago. I had to crab walk my way up and down the falls since they did not have any built- in stairs that would take you to the cascades.

Today, you will find many visitors clamoring to get to these falls and luck is on your side because there is now easy access to the falls. Make sure to bring your hiking shoes and get ready for a little work before you arrive to the picturesque swimming spots under the falls.

Peekamoose Blue Hole

Location: Grahamsville, New York

Highlights: Clear blue waters that is perfect for diving.

swimming in new york

Peekamoose Blue Hole is as unique as its name, a short walk from the parking lot is this crystal clear blue water, as cold as it is refreshing. It is the perfect place to cool off when the temperature is high.

Park at the large parking area with a sign for the Peekamoose Mountain area, then cross the road and  walk down a short path to the creek. Get there early because this incredible pool can get crowded during the summer.

Split Rock Falls

Location: Elizabethtown, New York

Highlights: Multiple steps of cascades where you can enjoy a refreshing swim.

swimming in new york

Split rock falls is a unique swimming destination. It has multiple tears of cascades that you can enjoy.

Go to the bottom of the falls and enjoy the calmer water or if you are up for an adventure, head up a little further and dive into the upper cascade. Be aware of the water current, make sure that it is safe before diving.

Warren Falls

Location: Warren, Vermont

Highlights: Unique rock formations and perfect diving spots for the more adventurous.

swimming in new york

Warren Falls is the only non New York State swimming spot that I included on this list. First, because I wasn’t able to make it to the others  due to time constraints and second,  it is one of the most beautiful spots that I have been to and I had to share with you! We arrived in Vermont and was immediately welcomed by torrential downpour. We got there early before more heavy rain came in, which gave us this whimsical effect. However, it came with extremely strong current and heavy cascades. Make sure to visit this incredible spot, but check the weather before you go!

High Falls Conservation Area

Location: Philmont, New York

Highlights: This hidden gem is still a bit off radar so no huge crowds of people is a win win! 

swimming in new york

The High Falls Conservatory Area is still a hidden gem, so there will be a lot less people compared to the others featured above. It is a nice  and easy stroll to the  main waterfall and you will also be met by the smaller waterfall along the way.

If you want to get up close to the waterfall, make sure to hike along the stream, or you can continue to the higher ground where you can have a birds eye view of the falls.

Although I listed this area as a swimming hole and there are people who do swim here, I prefer to sunbathe instead of swim in the area. The water is a bit more cloudy and the algae from the falls creates brown bubbles that may not be too appealing.

If you are more adventurous, you can climb up into the upper falls and there are beautiful pools that are more suitable for a nice cooling dip. Check it out and decide for your self if you would like to swim here. Even without the swim, it is still an incredible site to see and looks beautiful any time of the year!

Please use caution and common sense when swimming and diving in these locations. It is not uncommon for injury or even death to happen. So be aware and keep safe everyone!

Hope you enjoyed this list and visit them this summer. Comment below and let me know how your visit goes!
