If you’ve always dreamed about working in the best office in the world, look no further – here’s how to work remotely from Mykonos, one of the most beautiful islands in Greece. You could be sitting on a beach with a laptop next to you on the sunbed, admiring the turquoise water in front of you.
How to Work Remotely From Mykonos as a Digital Nomad – Does a Greek Island Make for a Good Office?
When it comes to choosing your workcation office, you probably couldn’t do any better than this Greek island. There are many remote workers like you, the coffee is delicious, and the Wi-Fi signal is strong. How could you not love your job if you’re working while watching the sunset over the Aegean Sea?
Mykonos is known for its beauty, amazing views, and classic Greek architecture. At the end of a long workday, you could go and explore all the whitewashed stone buildings and paved streets. There are many hidden gems on the island that you need to see while you’re there, so it would be best to rent a car.
There Are Some Great Coffee Places Where You Can Concentrate and Be Productive
Many people like working in cafes, and the island is filled with amazing places for work, especially in Chora. Just imagine waking up in the morning in one of the Mykonos villas for rental, taking a walk down the white and blue streets to your favorite cafe, and ordering a delicious Greek frappe before doing some work on your laptop. Doesn’t get much better than that, does it? Here is a list of some quiet cafes that have a great Wi-Fi signal:
- El Burro Cafe,
- Cosmo Cafe,
- Central Cafe.
A Mykonos Beach Can Be the Perfect Spot for a Digital Nomad to Reply to Emails
If you’re someone that has the ability to work somewhere other than your desk, then you’re in for a treat with this gorgeous island. You could reply to emails and finish your tasks for the day from the beach. Even though this is mostly a party island, some of the best beaches are secluded and quiet, and they will be amazing places to do some work.
You could either lounge in a sunbed and listen to the waves or head to the beach bar and get an iced cold frappe. The three best beaches, if you’re looking for some peace and quiet, are Agios Stefanos, Lia, and Ftelia Beach.
This Is the Best Place to Be if You Like to Have Some Fun at the End of a Work Week
Mykonos nightlife is legendary, and the island is filled with some of the hottest clubs in the world. Each night is better than the previous one, and a great time is guaranteed. It’s the perfect place to be after a long week at work, as you can go out any time you’d like and blow off some steam.
You Will Need to Organize Your Time and Find the Right Balance Between Work and Fun
When you decide to stay on one of the most beautiful Greek islands, it could be pretty easy to get sucked into all the glitz and the glamor. There are so many fun things to do around here, and the moment you walk out of your luxury Mykonos villa rental, you can expect to find a fun restaurant, club, or bar on every corner.
But remember, you need to go back to your job the next day, which means you will need to be incredibly disciplined. When you’re working as a remote employee, you won’t have anyone hovering over you, making sure you’re staying on top of your tasks. You’re completely in charge of your time, and that requires some great time management skills. Create a schedule for yourself as if you were working out of a traditional office – work till 4 PM, party till 4 AM.
Do Digital Nomads Need a Visa to Go on a Workcation in Greece?
Remote working has become more and more popular during the last few years. However, remote workers can get fed up with working from their homes all the time, so they often go on workcations. They go on adventures all around the world, and they take their jobs with them.
The fabulous country of Greece has noticed the influence of remote workers, and they have developed a new way of letting them know they’re welcome to come and work on Greek land – a digital nomad visa (DNV). This program allows Non-EU digital nomads who end up getting a visa to stay and work remotely in Greece over a period of twelve months.
Once those twelve months are up, you can decide whether or not you want to apply for the digital nomad residency permit, which will prolong your stay for an additional year, and this permit can be renewed once. This means you could work remotely as a foreigner in Greece for three years, while a regular tourist visa lasts only for 90 days.
How Can You Apply for a Work Visa in Greece? The First Step Is Seeing if You’re the Right Candidate for It
While Greeks have become more inclusive of remote workers, they won’t let just anyone have their visa and allow them to stay in the country for three years. There are certain requirements that are expected of you if you decide to apply for the visa, like proof of income, here is what you need to have:
- You need to be a non-EU citizen,
- You need to be a digital nomad,
- An employment contract with a foreign company,
- A monthly salary of at least 3,500 euros.
