Ecuador Launches the Ecuador Digital Nomad Visa
With an increasing number of people who want to work remotely, numerous countries are easing immigration rules to host those who want to experience the digital nomad lifestyle.
Ecuador has launched a new digital nomad visa, offering remote workers a “low cost of living” and “authentic experiences.” Country officials hope the nomad way of life will help ‘inject’ money into the national economy considering that nomads are often perceived as long-term tourists.
With the Ecuador digital nomad visa, remote workers can live in the country for up to 2 years. If you own a company, work for, or provide services to a company or person outside Ecuador, the option to reside in and work remotely from Ecuador without local sponsorship is an easy option for the growing list of digital nomad visa countries.
