In this episode of our Cross-Border Catch-Up podcast series, Patty Shapiro (San Diego) and Eric Lee (New York) discuss the recent trend in East Asia to use digital nomad visas, which allow individuals to work remotely in a country for foreign employers. These nomad visa programs are specifically designed to permit eligible foreign nationals to live in a country while working remotely for a foreign employer—while also avoiding the typical hurdles and headaches involved with work authorization and taxes. Eric and Patty cover the various digital nomad visa programs in East Asia, the eligibility requirements of these programs (such as income thresholds, health insurance coverage, and criminal history certificates), the duration of visa application processes, and the approaches various Asian countries have towards the use of these visas.
