Working remotely is a chance to experience Estonia as more than just a tourist.
Getting tired of staring at the same four walls of your apartment? Change up your scenery by relocating to Tallinn for a week (or a few). As the saying goes, when life gives you remote work, become a digital nomad! Working remotely is nothing new. People with jobs that only require WiFi have been travelling the world as digital nomads for years.
With the ongoing pandemic, however, lots of companies have either gone entirely remote or are letting employees choose where to work from. This shift has made the remote working lifestyle attainable for more than just freelancers.
Estonia is a growing destination for digital nomads
Estonia is a high-tech nation with advanced digital infrastructure. It’s also home to some of Europe’s fastest-growing companies.
Thanks to a low population density and precautions during the pandemic, Estonia continues to have some of the lowest COVID-19 infection rates in Europe and relatively few daily restrictions.
With all the extra precautions that go into travel these days (no matter how safe the destination), it makes sense to stay longer once you arrive. The beauty of remote working is that your trip doesn’t have to be squeezed into a rushed weekend.
Make Tallinn your home for a week (or several). Use each weekday to get acquainted with a new corner of the city, and embark well-rested on bigger adventures on the weekends.
If you fall in love with Tallinn – as people tend to do – you can also apply for Estonia's Digital Nomad Visa to live and work here for up to a year.
