Here are the destinations in Europe paying digital nomads to work there

Many Europeans have adopted digital nomadism after the pandemic.

These places are sometimes called “Zoom towns” and can be described as quaint tourist-friendly villages. They can also include entire countries.

is where remote workers decide to open a business. There are increasing numbers of places that offer incentives to remote workers, sometimes up to EUR44,000.

Research by William Russell has revealed that there are three main reasons why a town will pay people to move there.

  • Underpopulation
  • Economic stimulation
  • Renovation of housing

No matter the reason, these are the top places in Europe that offer money in exchange for digital nomads moving there now.

Spain: small towns in Galicia, Asturias

Large numbers of Spaniards are moving to larger cities from the country’s old pueblos (villages).

Local governments concluded that offering a financial incentive is the best way to attract people back.

Ponga, Asturias, is offering families EUR3,000 to settle in and an additional EUR3,000 for every new baby born within the region. It has a population less than 600 inhabitants and is decorated with intricate rural churches that display art dating back to 17th century.

Rubia is another hidden gem in Galicia’s mountains. The stunning views from the Iberian peninsula might not be enough to entice you, but the township nearby may offer an additional EUR100-150 per monthly income.

Ireland: The whole country

Do you want to start your next Airbnb, Google or Paypal? Because of its low corporate tax and links to the EU, many companies choose Ireland for their European headquarters.

If you are a digital nomad who is open to meeting new people, greenery, and fresh produce, then look no further. The Irish government has created a program for ambitious and well-traveled people who want to follow their example.

Enterprise Ireland’s criteria are simple. You will need to show that your company can create at least 10 jobs and generate sales of EUR1 million within the first three years.

Switzerland: Along the Albinen Mountains

You will be $25,200 more richer if you move to Albinen, a Swiss mountainside retreat. It has been the recipient of one of the most generous settlement grants in the world since 2017. Each year, there is enough money to support up to four families.

It is a great place to live, with fresh alpine air and some of the best education and healthcare in the world. Also, high salaries make it a very attractive option. There is one catch.

Albinen residents must make a commitment to stay there for at least 10 year. You are not eligible for the grant if your spouse is not a citizen. The residence must be considered your primary property, and you must not exceed 45 years of age.

Italy: EUR1 houses in Sicily and Sardinia

It’s easy for you to see why so many regions in Italy use the charm offensive to attract digital nomads.

This is a central part of the new property trend in which towns sell EUR1 homes. This is a way to attract creative minds who have a little extra cash to restore beautiful homes to their former glory.

You should make sure that you are in it for the right reasons and not just to make a quick buck. There are agreements that require you to invest in renovations, or you could face a fine from your local authorities.

These schemes are being implemented in some regions of the country:

  • Sicily
  • Sardinia
  • Abruzzo
  • Milano

Italy: Calabria, Abruzzo and Apulia: Villages

There are many other locations that require less time and money than home renovation. These are places that would prefer to pay you, just like the rest.

Candela is one example. The medieval village is located in the beautiful Apulia region of Italy. It was named “Little Naples” because of its beauty and easy-going lifestyle.

Depending on whether you are a solo traveller, a couple or a family member, your monthly income can be EUR800, EUR1,200 or EUR2,000 euros. You will need a minimum annual salary of EUR7,500 as well as an application for formal residence.

Santo Stefano di Sessanio is located in the Abruzzo region and is not far from Rome.

Cobbled Town recently began to offer grants up to EUR44,000 to encourage new residents between 18 and 40 to move there. The expectation is that you will start a business during your stay.

Calabria, the newest addition to Italy’s offerings, is last but not least. This region is the “toe” of the Italian boot shape. It consists of many villages that have experienced huge population declines. Some villages have seen a decline in population, with some having fewer than 2000 inhabitants over the past few years. However, there are enough infrastructures to support many more.

To apply, applicants must be below 40 years old. However, they would be eligible to EUR1,000-EUR8000 per year for two to 3 years. You could earn EUR24,000 to live along the Italian coast. Sign us up.
