The pandemic has greatly changed the way companies approach remote work, from hiring workers to allowing workers to work remotely. Now that many employees have both a corporate office and an easily accessible remote work site at their disposal, the way companies approach remote work has greatly changed. Many have come to love working remotely and have started traveling without taking vacations. Let’s take a look at the top three European destinations of choice for remote workers.
1. Prague, Czechia
Because of its strategic position, EU nationals can work remotely without a formal work visa, and they can easily travel to Germany, Poland, Austria, and other countries. Czechia offers a little more difficult-to-apply-for “trade license.” It might take up to four months to obtain it in person at a Czech embassy or consulate. A valid trade license, adequate money in a bank account, health insurance, and evidence of housing for at least a year are required.
2. Porto, Portugal
Your work may continue without interruption because Portugal is ranked 17th among the nations with the quickest Internet connectivity. The municipal government of Madeira has also started the Madeira Digital Nomads initiative, where employees will be allowed to reside in the Nomad Village in Ponta do Sol. It’s not just mainland Portugal that has done this. Freelancers and business owners can enter the nation for a longer period of time with a temporary residence visa. It can be prolonged and used as a means of obtaining permanent residence as well.
3. Athens, Greece
Although costs vary, the cost of living is roughly 30% lower than in other European countries: Greece’s mainland is less expensive than its islands, which have higher prices for rent, food, and petrol. You must show proof of sufficient funds (€3,500 per month) in order to obtain a digital nomad visa, which is good for up to 12 months.
