It’s Monday and many of us wish we could be working somewhere beautiful.

Perhaps an island in Thailand for example?

The following news may be your answer ⤵

Previously, Thailand only offered 2 months to stay in the country without a VISA for UK citizens.

After that you had to leave.

You could re-enter, but that was always on the discretion of the country.

It was a nuisance and working remotely had its limitations.

This has now changed.

The DTV (Destination Thailand Visa) has been designed especially for remote workers.

For a modest fee of just £215 digital nomads can now stay for up to 6 months straight and legally work here online.

Want to stay longer?

They can renew again for another 6 months - one year in total.

This is going to attract MANY professionals with remote freedom who will want to do a longer stint here, perhaps escaping the winter months in their home country.

It’ll also boost the Thai economy.

A win-win situation.

Yet again proof the future really is WFA (Work From Anywhere).

A global marketplace of talent exists that is gaining more and more location choice...

The question is, which countries will win them over most?
