IMI's Complete Digital Nomad Visa Guide

Maps, charts, and filters to compare all the world's digital nomad visas.

Digital Nomad Visas (DNVs) are short-term temporary residence permits designed for remote workers who wish to live and work in a foreign country.

They are typically valid only for short periods and come with minimum income requirements.

DNV holders are often exempt from local taxation, as long as you are a tax resident in your country of employment or self-employment, and usually don’t allow you to take up local employment. 

While most DNVs allow you to bring your family, only a few offer a path to permanent settlement.
