Malta is seeking to lure Digital Nomads who want to move to the country to work Remotely.
The program costs €300 and includes a six-month visa as well as the possibility of earning a one-year 'Nomad Residence Permit.'
To be considered, candidates must establish that they are employed remotely by a company headquartered abroad, that they operate a business, or that they provide freelancing services to clients based abroad.
Applicants will be subjected to a due diligence process that includes a requirement that they have "a good reputation and excellent police conduct." They must have a valid passport as well as confirmation that they are currently residing in Malta.
Since digital nomads often pay their taxes in a separate jurisdiction, applicants will be required to present proof of health insurance to secure access to health care.
