Latvia implements new Digital Nomad Visa
The Latvian government recently began accepting applications for a new Digital Nomad Visa, which will permit eligible non-Latvian nationals to work remotely from within Latvia for an initial period of one year. Individuals employed by organizations registered in a Member State of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as well as self-employed individuals whose businesses are registered in an OECD Member State, are eligible to apply for the Digital Nomad Visa. All applicants must have received a monthly remuneration of at least 2.5 times the average monthly salary in Latvia in each of the six months leading up to the filing of their application.
