The Digital Nomad Trend in Europe

The absence of an official digital nomad visa in New Zealand is intriguing, especially when compared to numerous other countries, particularly in Europe. This summer, Europe experienced a wave of digital nomads equipped with laptops, warmly welcomed to traverse the continent while efficiently working from remote locations. Greece, among other countries, enticed them with tax incentives, and several European nations embraced short-term agreements, making it easier for foreign nationals to relocate.

This prompts the question: Why hasn’t New Zealand taken this progressive step yet? A similar scenario unfolds in Australia, a neighboring nation to New Zealand, which also lacks an official digital nomad visa. The shared Kiwi-Aussie bond raises curiosity about the reasons behind both countries not adopting this emerging trend.
