Costa Rica, Greece and 42 other countries with a digital nomad visa—the U.S. isn’t one of

In Europe

The U.S. job market has cooled off significantly since the “great resignation” brought on by the pandemic, but is in a relatively good place, according to recent reports. Still, it is harder for workers to find new jobs, which could be especially tough on recent college graduates.

According to a report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers, employers plan to hire about 5.8% fewer new college graduates from this year’s class than they hired from the class of 2023.

It’s why Vicki Salemi, a career expert at Monster, told CNBC, she suggests taking advantage of the flexibility currently being offered by companies and casting a wider net in your job search.

“In terms of the quality and quantity, they can pursue jobs beyond the constraints of a particular zip code,” Salemi said.

Whether you’re a recent college graduate entering the workforce or just looking for a change of scenery If you can land a job that let’s you work from just about anywhere, a digital nomad visa in a country like Costa Rica or Greece might be just what you’re looking for.

A digital nomad visa is a short-term permit that allows someone to stay in a country for an extended period of time and work remotely. The length of time a nomad can stay varies from place to place but most countries allow for six months to a year.

The biggest catch with a digital nomad visa is that you typically have to be either self-employed or working for an entity outside of the country in which you plan to stay.

And if you are an American living and working in another country and you make over the minimum amount required — which depends on your filing status — you must file a U.S. tax return, according to H&R Block.

The United States does not have a digital nomad visa, but does offer other visa options that might allow for someone to work in the country as a freelancer.

As of May 2024, the following countries are offering digital nomad visas or similar schemes geared toward bringing in remote workers.
