The Complete List of Digital Nomad Visas (updated)

Residency & Visas| Views: 841

updated October 21, 2020

A Digital Nomad Visa gives you a more official presence in your host country, allowing you to stay beyond the usual 3-4 month duration of a tourist visa.  They eliminate the need for border runs.  If you like a place and want to stick around, you can sign a lease without worrying you’ll have to pack up and leave.

While some of these are designed purely for digital nomads, other countries offer more “traditional” temporary residency visas that have similar benefits. 

Here’s the list so far, and we suspect we’ll see additional countries joining the fray. We’ll keep this list updated with developments. Please sign up for our email newsletter to stay updated.
