Have you ever looked out your window while WFH and thought you were on a European island? Now you can.
The Mediterranean island of Malta, located off the coast of Sicily, has launched Nomad Residence Permit, which welcomes visitors to travel to the island and stay a while. One year, to be exact, all while working remotely, according to Travel + Leisure.
The program is open to people from non-European Union countries, including the United States, according to the Malta Tourism Authority.
In order to apply, travelers must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (which they must verify through the Verify app), show that they can work remotely, and work for a company abroad, reported Travel + Leisure.
And, for those who like and want to stay away from the one-year program they can apply to renew their permit, the magazine said.
“If there are any lessons from the pandemic, it is that people are ready to move more than ever,” Charles Mizzi, CEO of Residency Malta, told Travel + Leisure.
He added: “Individuals who can work remotely using technology and entrepreneurs eager to travel and discover new countries and cultures are being welcomed,” Mizzi said.
