Immigration Update: UK Government Unveils Remote Work Perks for Short-Term Visitors

Since January 31, 2024, individuals traveling to the United Kingdom have been allowed to work remotely while visiting. Visitors are prohibited from engaging with the local market, working for organizations in the UK, or directly providing goods and services to the public. These rules prohibit visitors from traveling to the UK with the primary purpose of remote working, which is a significant difference compared to the ‘digital nomad’ visas offered by other countries. We offer a table of many countries with so-called digital nomad visas, including current fees and minimum income requirements. This type of visa can allow workers, freelancers and self-employed individuals to live in one country whilst working remotely for a company located in a different country.
