Italy – Coming soon

Italy has put forward plans to introduce digital nomad visa for people outside the European Union. The initiative was approved March 28 and will allow non-residents to work remotely in the country for up to a year.

However, the law might not be designed to welcome everyone to live the Italian dream since these visas are aimed to attract “highly qualified” remote workers -only-.

The term “highly qualified” is yet to be clearly defined by the Italian authorities. But, as per local media, it could mean anything from “college professors to circus performers.”

This is what Italian MP Luca Carabetta has to say about the requirements: The government must work on a new bill to implement the law, which will set out all the procedures and details,” Carabetta said. 

“Requirements for the remote worker are the availability of suitable housing, adequate income, health insurance and a clean criminal record.”

“We are happy to have approved the proposal but we are also aware of the next steps.

Czech Republic

Spend your weekends exploring the historical towns and mountains of one Prague, one of the best cities for digital nomads with the new freelancer visa called the Zivno. 

This digital nomad visa allows to live and work in the country for 1 year and offers the possibility of one extension. The catch is that this one is a bit more difficult to get, but still not impossible.

How to get it

  • You will need a trade license for one of the trades listed here
  • Show proof of accommodation for at least a year in order to qualify
  • Submit proof of at least €5,587 in your bank account (per person)
  • And pay about USD $80 USD) per month in local taxes

What to expect 

  • You must prove that you have sufficient funds to “establish and maintain employment indefinitely”

The Start-Up Law – visa

This is an initiative that would allow non-EU nationals to live, work and create start-ups in the country for up to a year.

Spain also offers a Non-Lucrative Visa that allows foreigners to live in Spain for 1 year and a possible extension. The catch is that you are not allowed to work on this visa. The Spanish government aims to take in “retired” and self-sufficient folks.

Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism has just launched a digital nomad visa called the Global Citizen Concierge Program (GCCP) that will allow nomads to live and work in the country for up to 2 years.

The minimum income requirement is a bit more expensive than other countries. If you are not there yet, this visa may be the motivation you need to make the leap to a six-figure earner. Digital nomads need to present proof of an annual salary of at least USD $100,000, or USD $150,000 for couples.

Since this is a whole new program, the full list of requirements has not been released yet. But we have gathered some conditions here.

  • You must be employed by a company outside of the Islands
  • You will need a notarized bank reference letter
  • All applicants are subjected to background checks
  • You will need to get a health insurance policy

Costa Rica

This amazing country is now offering a new type of residency visa for digital nomads and remote workers. To qualify, applicants need to show proof of a non-locally monthly salary, fixed income or an average monthly income, during the last year, for an amount equal to or greater than $3,000 per person or $4,000 per family.


Applicants must make, at least, USD 3,000 per month or make a deposit of $60,000 in a Costa Rican bank.

How to get it

  • Hire an immigration lawyer who knows how to navigate the Costa Rican system or just do the registration process by yourself at their official website.  
  • Translate all of your documents to Spanish and authenticate them in your home country.
  • Purchase a medical insurance policy that covers you throughout your stay in Costa Rica.
  • Pay a one-time visa fee

BenefitsComplete exemption from income tax: the income generated is completely exempted from income tax.

Remote workers from other countries can apply for a six-month temporary resident , which can be extended only once for the same period. It will also offer a number of perks, such as discounts on flights with Argentina’s state-owned airline Aerolíneas Argentinas.

“We want to attract people who after the pandemic changed their mentality and now prioritize their freedom, want to visit new places and enjoy life in a different way,” she said. “The pandemic accelerated a trend that was already happening,” said Interior Minister Wado de Pedro

Digital nomads tend to have higher purchasing power and spend on average about $3,000 per month, twice as much as a normal tourist, said Florencia Carignano, national director of migration.

Some Requirements

  • Only for citizens that do not require a tourist visa to enter Argentina
  • Applicants will have to submit a document that proves their work relationship with at least one employer
  • Submit a CV

Tourist e-Visa

Tourist visas allow visitors to enter the country once and stay for up to 30 days. They cannot be renewed, so you’ll need to leave the country and apply for a new visa if you want to stay.

Visa Fees and Application

Once you’re on the Cambodian visa webpage, the application itself is easy to fill out and very straightforward. Apart from entering your personal information on your passport, there are only a few other things you’ll need.

  • You’ll need to upload a digital photo or scan of your passport as well as a digital photo of yourself on a neutral background. In both cases, a photo taken with your cellphone usually works.
  • You’ll also need to choose your port of entry, which is likely either the Siem Reap Airport or Phnom Penh Airport.
  • If you’ll be crossing via land from Thailand, Vietnam, or Laos, you’ll have to choose the border crossing checkpoint you plan to use, since the visa is only valid for the crossing you indicate in the application.

What is Vietnam business visa? How long it is good for?

Vietnam business visa is a short-term visa to Vietnam, issued to the foreigners who will be working with/for a company in Vietnam, attending a meeting/negotiation, or signing contracts, and do not have a valid working visa or temporary residence card.

Vietnamese business visa is categorized as DN1 and DN2 visa (formally DN, of which:

  • DN1 visa – to be granted to foreigners who work with other businesses and organizations with legal status in accordance with the laws of Vietnam.
  • DN2 visa – to be granted to foreigners who come to Vietnam to offer services, establish a commercial presence or perform other activities under international treaties to which Vietnam is a member.

Sample Vietnam business visa

While people with Vietnam tourist visas are not permitted to work in Vietnam, those with a business visa are allowed to take a leisure trip during their business in Vietnam.

Before Covid, a Vietnamese business visa is available in:

  • 1-month single/multiple entry
  • 3-month single/multiple entry, and
  • 1-year multiple entry (for US Passport holders only).

But at the moment, a business visa for Vietnam is good for 3 months at maximum.

Business/Ordinary Visa

For anyone who wants to stay in Cambodia long-term, you’ll need to apply for an E class visa (not to be confused with the electronic “e-visa”). E class visas are also referred to as “business visas” or “ordinary visas,” and they allow the holder to stay in Cambodia for extended periods of time. Ordinary visas initially last for 30 days, but can be extended once you’re in the country for up to 12 months at a time.

There are four types of ordinary visa extensions: one for workers (class EB), one for people seeking employment (class EG), one for students (class ES), and one for retirees (class ER).

Visa Fees and Application

The ordinary/business visa is a visa on arrival (you cannot get one electronically before arriving). Make sure you have a filled out application, passport photo, and $35 in U.S. dollars. The visa on arrival is valid for 30 days, so you’ll need to apply for the appropriate visa extension if you plan to stay longer. Visa extensions are granted for up to 12 months at a time, and only the six-month or 12-month extensions allow holders to leave and re-enter Cambodia.

  • Workers (EB Extension): This extension is for those who are working, volunteering, or freelancing in Cambodia plus their immediate family members. You’ll need a letter of employment from a Cambodian company or a letter stating you’re self-employed with an official government stamp. Family members will have to show documents that prove the relation between them and the sponsor. This visa allows workers to live in Cambodia, but you’ll still need a valid work permit to legally have a job in Cambodia.

Employment Seekers (EG Extension): If you’re looking for work in Cambodia, the EG extension lets you have up to six months to find a job and then convert the EG extension into an EB extension.

Students (ES Extension): Essentially a student visa, you’ll need to show a letter of acceptance into a Cambodian education program, plus proof of sufficient funds to support yourself.

Retirees (ER Extension): Retired individuals who want to live in Cambodia can apply for the ER extension if they are over 55 and have proof of sufficient funds to live.

The extension must be applied for within 30 days of arrival and before your visa expires. The official way to do it is to visit the Immigration Department in Phnom Penh, which is next to the airport. The fees for the extension seem to vary arbitrarily, depending on the type of extension, the length of stay, and the official who helps you. For an extra fee, there are agencies all over the country who will submit the paperwork for you.

Sri Lanka – Coming soon

The Sri Lankan government is taking steps to attract DNs and people working remotely with its recently approved long-term one-year visas. The decision was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers on July 12.

The government took into account that digital nomads are not “sensitive to seasonal travel,” so those were perfect to help them “boost off-season tourism.” 

The requirements to be eligible are yet to be announced.

South Africa is in the process of changing its work visa regime to introduce startup visas and digital nomad visas for those who want to work and live in the country.

The initiative will allow digital nomads and remote workers to stay in the country for one year, with the option to extend it for another one.

The criteria have not yet been fully released, but applicants may need to have a minimum income of $3,000 per month.

Remote workers will also need proof of employment and accomodation and health insurance.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said the objective is to make the country more accessible to this population.

An Australian Working Holiday Visa is a long term visa that allows digital nomads to work and live in the country for 1 year. 

The catch is that you must be between 18 and 35 years old to qualify for this visa. If you are, you will have the possibility to extend it for 1 more year -this is important- if you do some sort of farm work in rural Australia. 

Many people visit Australia just to experience first hand its rich fauna. If you are interested in volunteering or working with animals in Australia find out what programs will also qualify you for a visa extension. The extension of this visa may not be advisable for digital nomads since most of us have little to nothing about farm work. 

We recommend you to consult with your embassy about these types of visas in Australia so you know first hand about the special conditions. 

Tourist Visa on Arrival

Tourist visas, or T class visas, can also be obtained on arrival in Cambodia. It’s slightly cheaper than applying for the e-visa, but long lines and sluggish processing for visas on arrival are the norm, so the e-visa is usually your best bet. If you need to get to Cambodia in a hurry and don’t have time to wait for the e-visa (it usually takes under 24 hours to process but can take up to three business days), then the visa on arrival is a convenient fallback.

E-visas are accepted at all of the airports in Cambodia, but not at every land border crossing. If you are crossing the border in a vehicle from Thailand, Vietnam, or Laos, you should confirm that your port of entry accepts e-visas; if they don’t, you’ll need to request the visa on arrival.

Visa Fees and Application

The visa application is nearly identical to the e-visa, but you’ll download and print the form instead of filling it out online.

  • Apart from the application, you’ll need your passport and a physical passport photo, so make sure you have one before landing in Cambodia.
  • The visa fee is $30 which must be paid in cash in U.S. dollars. Try to have the exact amount on hand, because it’s unlikely you’ll get change back. The airports have ATMs available but they don’t always have cash available, so don’t rely on them.
  • If you’re crossing at a land border, expect to pay another $1–$20 in “fees” to the immigration official. There’s no official listing of land crossing fees, but since the official has the authority to deny your entry, your only option is to pay it.
