If it is getting harder working from home, maybe it's time to think about moving not just your job but yourself as well. Now that we have to learn how to live with coronavirus, it is very hart to get motivated within four walls, travelmagazine.rs writes.

If you want to get out of this predicament, while not wasting your precious vacation days, there's a way to work and enjoy a whole new environment. As Time Out reports, Georgia is launching a new program of visas for digital nomads.

Georgia Now Offering One-Year Visa to Digital Nomads

Inspired by the examples of Estonia and Barbados, Georgia has decided to turn to digital nomads, who are becoming the kind of tourists that will travel the most in the upcoming years. Located on the very border of Europe and Asia, Georgia is often considered an underrated place. Its capital, Tbilisi, is known for its beautiful architecture, cobblestone streets, and charming cafes. Guests can also visit medieval monasteries, incredible mountains and rocky beaches and, of course, taste great food and wine.

Now the economy of Georgia enables “citizens of all countries” to work remotely from the country during any period longer than six months. The visa program is mostly directed at private entrepreneurs and freelancers, but everyone who works remotely may apply. Of course, due to the coronavirus pandemic, all applicants are required to go to a two-week quarantine as soon as they enter the country. In order to apply, you need to fill out a form, requiring your personal data, confirmation of employment and a letter of consent to quarantine. You will also have to provide evidence of your travel insurance, covering a period of at least six months.

This specific application form will soon be uploaded to the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, Time Out reports. There are also other visa applications, which are also available on the portal. Georgia plans to open its borders to tourists on July 31. The restrictions for certain countries and the guidelines for a short-term stay have not yet been announced, Time Out writes.
