Fancy WFH from an idyllic Greek island or with an office view of the Parthenon? Greece now offers a digital nomad visa that allows non-EU citizens to live and work in the country for up to 24 months. You’ll need a monthly income of at least €3,500 (£3,030, $3,630), plus health insurance, proof of accommodation and a clean criminal record. If you’d like to bring any dependents, you’ll need to prove a further €700 (£606, $726) income per month. To apply, fill in this application form and head to a Greek embassy or consulate.
Of all the many things that the last few years have upended, office life is one of the biggest. Tools like email and video chat apps have (at least in theory) untethered many of us from the workplace, meaning there may be very little need for many restless workers to stay rooted in one place. And that makes moving somewhere sunnier, cheaper or just more fun sound incredibly tempting.
As nations around the world have reopened their borders to travellers, many popular destinations have emphasised longer-term stays over short-term breaks. And at the very extreme end, some are even trying to sell themselves as idyllic remote-working spots, with new ‘digital nomad’ visas that would allow you to live and work there for up to a year – or sometimes even longer. Here’s a guide to the countries offering digital nomad visas right now, and how you can qualify. And here’s what it’s actually like to be a digital nomad – and how to become one yourself.
