Digital Nomadism – Implemented Policies
In the last two years, the global tourism and hospitality industry has experienced an unprecedented shock from the COVID–19 pandemic. Challenges across different fields in these industries worldwide became an important topic as well as remote forms of work. This study aims to investigate and compare what digital nomad policies have been implemented in twenty–three various countriesof the world to attract a legal digital workforce.The author reviewed countries’ nomad visa requirements using official governmental and visa information and contacted national visa offices where clarification was needed. The findings showed significant differences in obtaining these visas in the countries that offer these visas. It has also been shown that the number of countries providing access to these specifically tailored visas has grown fast in the past two years, and governments are crediting increasing importance to this significant trend. Additionally, this paper proposes a framework for future research agenda for the digital nomad form of work and its links to the host country’s international tourism and hospitality industry challenges.
