These 3 Popular Countries Launched Digital Nomad Visa In April 2024

Italy, Turkey and South Africa have embraced the digital nomad trend and offer visas tailored to this target group.

According to these governments, digital nomads will bring entrepreneurial ideas to their countries, which will be valuable for technology and similar sectors.

Let’s see the details and requirements to get a digital nomad visa in these countries.


Italy’s long-awaited digital nomad visa is finally available to non-EU citizens who “exercise a highly qualified work activity using technological tools that allow them to work remotely, whether as a self-employed person or as an employee or employee of a company, even if he is not in Italy,” the decree reads.


  • Eligible candidates must earn €28,000 or more annually.
  • Robust health insurance that covers your entire stay.
  • Proof of accommodation for the time the visa is valid.
  • Proof that you have been a digital nomad or teleworker for more than six months.
  • Criminal record.

The visa is valid for one year and can be extended if the applicant meets the same conditions.

Digital nomads must comply with tax laws in Italy before they can apply for this visa. The Italian government will contact the tax office in the applicant’s country of origin regarding taxes.
