But first, let’s explain in a few words what a digital nomad is if the term is new to you.

A digital nomad is a remote worker who travels from country to country, living there several months or even a year. Many states have Digital nomad visas, allowing these people to legally live and work in the country. Most common requirements include proof of employment, sufficient funds (varies for each country), rent proof, and a health insurance coverage.

  • Croatia launched a visa programme for digital nomads in 2021. Foreign digital nomads are not subject to pay income tax in Croatia for 1 year.

  • The Czech Republic offers a special business visa for digital nomads from outside the EU that nomads can use for up to 1 year.

  • Estonia allows foreign nationals to work in the country for up to 1 year for their own business registered abroad or in a remote position for a foreign employer.

  • Germany has 2 types of freelance visas: one for artists and one for other professionals. Digital nomads must register with the German tax office. Freelancers must have clients based in Germany.
