The government of Estonia has announced an amendment to its Alien Act, allow all remote workers to stay inside the country's borders for up to a year. The new initiative appropriately dubbed the 'Digital Nomad Visa,' was launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, that enabled most office workers to work remotely. The program will allow up to 1,800 people a year to work remotely within its borders and will appeal to Western and European citizens looking to quarantine in a more climate-friendly location.
“A digital nomad visa strengthens Estonia’s image as an e-state and thus enables Estonia to have a more effective say on an international scale,” said Estonia Interior Minister Mart Helme in an announcement.
