The very best countries for digital nomad workers revealed

Ever dreamt of working from sun-kissed beaches, taking your lunch breaks on yachts in the ocean, commuting to the office by sauntering down Mediterranean streets? Then the nomad worker lifestyle may suit you very well.

HRD is pleased to announce the 2022 World’s Best Nomad Visa. For many employees and self-employed people, working no longer means a set location and some want to supercharge ‘work-from-home’ with international travel. Technology has enabled the rise of the digital nomad, a worker or entrepreneur who can work anywhere, so long as they have a viable internet connection. We’ve looked at the range of countries across the world that actively welcome digital nomads, often as they endeavour to rebuild their economies post-pandemic.

“Rather than coming for the usual week, or three weeks or a month, why not plan out your business?” said Barbados’ prime minister Mia Mottley. “We have a mechanism that allows people who want to take advantage of being in a different part of the world, of the sun, sea and sand, and a stable society; one that functions well.”

President Mottley’s sentiment is shared by all the nations that welcome digital nomads, especially with many economies having been heavily impacted by the pandemic, which has decimated tourism and trade.

While some freelancers or contractors may choose to stay in one country for a short time and then return home, the true ‘digital nomad’ is typically a remote worker who will move from one foreign country to another and may wish to spend many years on the move.

Take a look at which countries offer the very best nomad worker lifestyle for globe-trotting digital employees here.
