Ready To Move Abroad? Apply For A Digital Remote Visa In These 11 Destinations

If you want more than a quick vacation, these visas can help.


If you're looking to move abroad one of the roadblocks you will inevitably face is deciding which visa to apply for. Pre-pandemic, most travellers used tourist visas which would allow visitors to stay in a country for up to 90 days. However, it's technically illegal to work on a tourist visa, and with the new restrictions and risk of travelling during COVID, leaving a country briefly and returning is not as simple as it used to be.

As we start to dip our toes into what this new way of travel looks like, more and more people are ready to take the leap of a faith into moving abroad. Bahamas, I'm looking at you.

In response to the new wave of remote workers caused by the pandemic, most countries have found a solution to meet the growing need of people who want to live, work, and play in the country for a longer period of time: Digital Nomad Visas.

Digital Nomad Visas requirements vary from country to country, and we rounded up all you need to know. This type of visa allows travellers to stay in a country for an extended period of time, so up to two years without being subject to that region's tax laws and without having to go through the process of obtaining a residency visa or citizenship.

So sis, it's time to have your passport and Black-owned sunscreen ready, cause summer 2021 is right around the corner and the world is calling your name! (Safely, of course.)

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
