It’s no surprise that the world of remote workers and digital nomads is growing at a rapid rate. With more and more yearning for an independent work environment coupled with the freedom to travel, remote working is on its way to the mainstream field. Not to mention, the ongoing pandemic has especially forced many to reconsider where they are basing themselves. Simply put, remote working is the future, and it’s on its way fast. That’s why Global travel site Big 7 Travel put together a list of the best cities and islands to work from remotely in 2021.
As the global shift to remote working shows no sign of switching back, workers across the world are leaving behind the traditional office setup to WFH permanently – and for many, that means relocating! In the US, at least, 20% of the current workforce are freelance workers and that number has been predicted to grow to 40% by the mid-2020s. So, where will people want to answer emails from? Aruba is listed at #37 in the list:
Aruba, whose national slogan is “One Happy Island” has launched a remote worker visa which they’ve aptly coined the “One Happy Workation” program. The Dutch Caribbean island is famous for its pristine beaches and lively locals who are sure to make you feel right at home. To qualify, you’ll need to prove that you are employed by a foreign company or are self-employed to ensure you won’t be taking any Aruban jobs. Fair enough, right? They’ve even sweetened the deal with several Wi-Fi stations throughout the island and hotels that are offering packages to fit your office needs. Plus, for an island nation, the cost of living is extremely reasonable.”
