Digital nomads or even nomadic families thinking about where to go for long summer vacations seek affordable housing and lower cost of living, strong and stable internet infrastructure, less crowded cities closer to nature, easy access to essential facilities such as hospitals, schools, summer camps, and markets, and effortless procedures for visas. Colombia checks all the boxes and more.
The US Dollar’s exchange rate and the cost-effective living spend make Colombia an appealing place to balance work and life. Colombia was first in the “Cheapest Places to Live in 2023″ Index published by International Living. Its rich geography gives travelers meaningful experiences across six charming regions. Its location in the Americas, with the same time zone as half of the United States, and its unparalleled air connectivity make this country the best choice for remote workers.
“Colombia is thrilled to share with digital nomads the privilege of working from the second most biodiverse country in the world”, said Carmen Caballero, President of ProColombia, the promotion agency part of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Tourism (MinCIT). “Bogotá, Medellín, Cartagena, Cali, the Coffee Axis (Eje Cafetero), and other destinations offer a variety of coworking spaces and accommodations with specific programs developed for more extended stays where remote workers will have unforgettable experiences,” she added.
“I first came to Colombia to study Spanish with an immersive language school. I fell in love with the culture and applied for the Digital Nomads Visa. Now, I can work remotely while still being in this beautiful country”, said Tolu Amole, an American entrepreneur.
The Nomad Visa is designed for people who want to travel around the country and stay for up to two years, with plenty of benefits found here.
