Top 4 places to work remotely
The Age of the Digital Nomad is one of the exciting developments post COVID19 lockdowns and restrictions, allowing you to have a source of income in your favourite holiday location.
Many countries have created their own versions of a ‘Digital Nomad Visa’ following the huge hit the tourism industry faced during the pandemic. These Visas are designed to encourage visitors to stay longer than a few weeks, with most a year long and extendable.
Here’s five of the best places around the world to work from home:
Mdina - The silent city of Malta
The silent city Mdina is the ideal place to work from home, your work won’t be interrupted by the sounds of traffic or tourists. Cars are very limited and visitors are expected to respect the quiet of the city.
The ancient city of Mdina was once the capital of Malta and earned its name of the silent city when the capital was moved into what is modern day Vittoriosa.
You could enjoy your lunch break on foot walking amongst ancient walls and admiring the panoramic views of the island.
Malta has 5G connection and a Nomad Residence Permit that would allow you to live there for a year.
Budapest - Hungary
Budapest is a lively and beautiful city, perfect for working overseas.
Affordable rentals are available for around $600 a month.
Party at night at the famous Ruin bars and recover in the Széchenyi Thermal baths, or explore outside the city and get a train to Lake Balaton which is the largest lake in central Europe.
The Digital Nomad Visa for Hungary is known as the White Card - The White Card does not allow families or couples, it is targeted to singles under 40s.
Bali - Indonesia
It is the dream of many to leave the office and work poolside in a Villa in Bali; the possible rentals and accommodation are beautiful and affordable.
The Digital Nomad Visa currently allows people to work tax free for 6 months in Bali, there are discussions of making this Visa more long term, potentially up to 5 years.
After your work is finished for the day you could explore sea life while snorkelling in Bali’s Blue Lagoon or go hiking and swimming in the Sekumpul Waterfall.
Greece - Kefalonia
Greece, known for its beautiful weather and all-day, every-day gyros policy, has its own Digital Nomad Visa that will allow you to work and live on the mainland or islands for up to three years.
The Island of Kefalonia is one of the peaceful Ionian islands that isn’t overcooked with travellers, even during the Summer months.
After work you could go swimming in the warm ocean and then head up from the beach as the sun sets and eat gemista (stuffed red peppers) in one of the local taverns.
Get to the crazy beautiful Melissani cave on your off days, one of the special attractions to Kefalonia.
