Estonia Digital Nomad Visa

Estonia is an EU country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe bordered to the north by the Gulf of Finland, to the west by the Baltic Sea, to the south by Latvia and to the east by Lake Peipus and Russia. Estonia is a member of the European Union and Schengen agreement, meaning that EU common visa policy applies for the country. Estonia is one of the most tax-friendly countries in the EU. Its tax rates are roughly half of those from other Western countries, and foreign income is not taxed. The living environment is very clean and safe. According to the World Health Organization, Estonia has the best overall air quality in the world.

The government launched an e-Residency program in 2018 and, since the COVID-19 pandemic, it has created a Digital Nomad Visa (DNV). Foreigners with the ability to work remotely can qualify for the DNV, which is a long-stay visa allowing you to live up to a year in Estonia.
