If you work in a setup that allows you to work remotely, you may have travelled within the country and abroad. Using your savings to visit new places while you also earn on-the-go, you’ve probably ticked off many destinations on your bucket list. However, if you’re looking for new, offbeat places to get a digital nomad visa for, we suggest you check out Namibia.

Be it Spain, Italy, Ecuador, Indonesia or Vietnam, these destinations offer ease of stay, tax savings, affordable accommodation and ample places to explore if you want to be a digital nomad and work from there.
