Are you dreaming of escaping the confines of the office and living the nomadic lifestyle? If so, Cyprus has you covered with their new digital nomad visa scheme. Launched in 2021, the digital nomad visa is an exciting opportunity for non-EU nationals. This innovative visa scheme provides the perfect opportunity for anyone wanting to travel and work remotely from the sunny island of Cyprus.
What is a digital nomad?
A digital nomad lives the life of a nomad. Rather than sitting around the house, the nomad lives out in the world. They move from location to location, only doing so when they’re digitally connected to their company back home. They will continue to use technology to accomplish work without ever having to set foot in the office.
While some digital nomads stay in one place for a few months at a time, or in a country or city for a few weeks, some digital nomads want to change where they work on a more frequent basis. They don’t work just from home. Sometimes they work from coffee shops, hotel rooms, planes, co-working spaces, and even travelling trailers.
No matter how you want your life set up, a digital nomad lifestyle depends on a remote job.
What are the requirements for the Cyprus digital nomad visa?
Non-EU/EEA citizens can get a visa if they work for an employer who is registered outside Cyprus.
To be eligible for this scheme, you will also need to have a monthly income of at least €3,500 after taxes and contributions.
Digital nomads can apply for permits that allow them to work abroad for one year at a time. The initial permit is for one year, but they may apply for a further two-year extension.
