The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected a large part of the countries of the world and caused governments, companies and people to create new job strategies that are ideal for living in confinement for a long period of time.
Many of the companies that had a type of operation in which their employees could telecommute, chose to take these measures for maintaining the pace of remote work and thus avoid contagion by COVID-19.
To attract residents in the midst of the Pandemic, several countries have joined the strategy to implement visas for digital nomads, where citizens can choose to legally telework in other countries.
What is a visa for digital nomads?
We begin by explaining to you that some tourist visas are usually a problem for those who wish to stay in the country they are visiting, for a longer period of time. This is a barrier that also affects people who telecommute, but could apply for traditional employment visas. For this reason, the visa for digital nomads was created.
Visas for digital nomads are travel permits that legalize the status of professionals who travel and can work remotely in that nation. The document allows a longer stay and is easy to obtain because it does not require a work contract.
