Work anywhere? You can!

Many countries that, before the pandemic, lived on tourism are now trying to restart, trying to attract the so-called “knowledge workers” who can move to the territory for long periods.

With the pandemic, the labor market has changed and it is now established for some categories of workers that you can choose the place from which to work.

In Bali, Indonesia, it is now possible to work remotely thanks to a five-year visa that lasts longer than any other visa for “digital nomads” currently in existence and is particularly advantageous. In this case, the objective of the Indonesian government is to attract visitors with a longer stay and a higher and lasting cost.

Greece anticipated this trend by approving a law in 2021 aimed at encouraging digital nomads to enter the country. Spain and Portugal have also entered this trend of remote work for non-residents and other countries have chosen similar formulas, including: Australia, Czech Republic, United Arab Emirates, Estonia, Germany, Thailand, Indonesia, Spain and Brazil.

Visas generally cost around $ 1,000 and exempt holders from local income tax for their stay, which usually lasts from six months to two years. They also require owners to be able to support themselves, without accepting local jobs.

In Italy, law 25 of last March 28 facilitates the entry of citizens of third countries who decide to work in the national territory for a certain period, carrying out their business remotely. To enter Italy, these workers will only need an entry visa, lasting no more than one year. Once they have applied for a visa, they will be entitled to a residence permit valid for up to one year. Finally, they will have to activate health insurance and comply with the Italian tax and social security provisions.

Alessandro Cappelli talks about it on Linkiesta.
