 Wednesday, March 7, 2018 


estoniaIn 2019, the Estonian Ministry of the Interior, together with the international job search platform Jobbatical, are planning to launch the first visa for digital nomads and it will  be a visa for all those people who use digital technologies to work remotely while travelling.



The founding principles behind Jobbatical is supporting digital nomads on their career journey and to create bridges, not walls, by inspiring knowledgeable people to discover their dream work locations across the globe.



Killu Vantsi, legal migration adviser at the Estonian Ministry of the Interior said that the Migration policy has to take into account the fact that in today’s globalised world, people are more mobile, often combining work and travel.



She further continued Estonia is at the forefront of e-solutions and the e-Residency programme has already become very popular among digital nomads, allowing them location-independent access to Estonian e-services. It is therefore not surprising that the digital nomad community has suggested creating a special visa to facilitate the entry of digital nomads to Estonia.





With this  programme digital nomads can work and travel in Estonia for up to 365 days, the visa will give them access to the Schengen Area, allowing them to travel in other EU member states for up to 90 days.



Karoli Hindriks, CEO and founder of Jobbatical, said that the  world of work is rapidly changing. Technology is helping more people than ever before to work remotely, allowing millions to offer businesses technical and creative expertise independent of geography.



A Digital Nomad Visa represents a breakthrough in the way governments support today’s mobile workforce. He was delighted to support the Ministry of the Interior and are looking forward to making border less working a reality for digital nomads everywhere.
