The most frequently asked questions on telework and their answers
The world worker (as we like to call him at Nomamundi) by combining work on the Internet and travel, embodies a certain form of emancipation. The latter has the opportunity to earn a salary while performing his job and freely navigating on the other side of the planet. This working method requires the possession of a computer and a good Wifi connection. Following the development of new technologies, the worker can perform his job remotely in a flexible way to travel according to his desires. He does not necessarily have a fixed address, he can freely change his location. His work space is also not fixed. Most of the time, he works in coworking spaces available in the destination where he is. Hotel rooms or AirBnb rentals can also become his new office for the period.
To become one, a written agreement must be established between the employee and the employer, if you are an employee. The frequency of remote work must be mentioned and your employer must provide you with the necessary equipment and technical support. Your employer must also contribute to the operating costs (provision of internet connection, computer or telephone, possible participation in heating or electricity costs, etc.). However, if you are a freelancer, there is no obligation to stay in a fixed country. It is therefore easier to become a world worker by being a freelancer.
As an employee, you will get the same salary as you had in your home country. If you are a freelancer, it will depend on the diversity of your assignments. There is no standard salary for a teleworker.
To get the most out of your experience abroad, we recommend that you first stay in popular places such as hostels. Also, don't hesitate to participate in social events/group activities. Get out of your comfort zone by trying new things, new places, new food, new drinks, or making new friends. Say yes to opportunities whenever possible. Connect on your own time outside of work to share those moments.
To separate your living space from your work space, we recommend that you work in a separate area. A room dedicated to work in the place you rent during the period of telework can be a solution. Moreover, in all the proposed destinations, you can find coworking spaces to work in peace and exchange with other workers of the world. The most important thing is to have a good quality internet connection. You can find the coworking spaces for each destination on their respective pages.
Nomamundi has decided to rank its destinations. The rating criteria used for this classification take into account security, cost of living, health, weather, internet quality and visa requirements.
It depends on the destination. Some destinations consider digital nomads as tax residents after a certain number of days. You will therefore be liable for two taxes: the one in your country of origin and the one where you will live during your years of telework. Remember to get information before you leave, on the embassy website.
The telework presents many advantages for the worker. Indeed, it is synonymous with saving time, money, better management of daily life, autonomy in the management of tasks,better concentration, better management of private and professional life,better purchasing power and quality of life. The organization of the day according to our constraints allows a flexibility and responsibility without fail.
One of the disadvantages of going abroad is that the administrative procedures are long. This allows the person deciding to leave to get out of their routine. Thanks to us, your visa procedures will never have been so simple.
We prefer to experience foreign countries as a family. That's why our proposed destinations are open to families. In some cases, it will be necessary to wait until the principal applicant travels to the country to sponsor his or her family so that they can join him or her.
The teleworker is affiliated in the State where he/she physically carries out his/her professional activity. Example: you are based in France and you telework for a company established in the United Kingdom. You are then affiliated to the French scheme.
The price of a visa depends on the price proposed by the embassy of the destination and the complexity of the request that we make for you (some requests include translation and legalization of documents).
