Due to technological development, a time has come when you can work from practically anywhere in the world. More people today get the luxury of choosing how, when, and where they want to work, completely on their terms. Mykonos for digital nomads has become more and more popular throughout the years. Here’s why you should get out of the city and take your laptop to The Island of the Winds.
Out of All the Places in the World, Consider Living in Greece for a Few Weeks – Mykonos for Digital Nomads Is Great
When you’re living in the world as a nomad, and you’re always working remotely, you get to organize your life the way you want to. You can live anywhere you want, you can move to another country every month, and you get the opportunity to experience the world as not many people do. So, it all comes down to your preferences.
A lot of digital nomads could suffer from vitamin D deficiency as they’re constantly at home on their laptops. So, have you considered working from the beach? You could drink your frappe and enjoy the sound of the waves while you’re answering emails. If you like sunny weather year-round, why not move to the most beautiful Greek island – The Island of the Winds?
Greece Offers a Digital Nomad Visa (DNV)
Greece understands the importance and the fast growth of digital nomads all over the world. That’s why the Greek government has developed a program for digital nomads to get their remote work visa, so they can work from anywhere in Greece.
A classic tourist visa allows only a 90-day stay, but the DNV allows you to stay and do your remote job in the country of Greece for a period of up to twelve months. Once those twelve months are up, you can apply for a digital nomad residence permit that lasts for an additional twelve months and can be renewed. So, you could stay for a total of three years.
How Can a Digital Nomad Apply for a Visa?
Applying for a visa is quite easy. All you need is to make a trip to the nearest Greek embassy and pay a 75 euro fee. But for starters, you should know that there are some requirements for applying and that the DNV was meant only for non-EU residents. People who are EU citizens don’t require any kind of a special visa to work and live in Greece. Here are all the requirements you need to fulfill in order to apply:
- You have to prove you’re a non-EU resident,
- You will need to prove you’re a digital nomad that uses telecommunication technology for their job,
- You will need to prove you have an employment contract with a foreign company, along with your proof of income, as you have to earn at least 3,500 euros a month to get the visa.
Once You’re Done With Your Work for the Day, You Can Go Out and Explore the Island
The most amazing part of working remotely from here is that you have endless opportunities once you close your laptop for the day. There are many fun things to do and countless beautiful attractions to see. You can take a walk around Chora and admire the gorgeous Greek architecture. You can try moussaka – the national dish of Greece, in one of the best restaurants, and you are guaranteed to fall in love with Greek cuisine once you try gyros.
If you’re feeling a bit adventurous by the end of the workday, you could rent a car and explore all the hidden gems the island has to offer. Another fun thing you could do if you get a few days off is to get a Mykonos yacht rental and visit all the beautiful Greek islands nearby. You could even bring your laptop along and do your job on the yacht while you’re cruising along the Aegean Sea.

You Can Reply to Your Emails Right From a Beach in Greece, Here’s a Guide to Some Calm Beaches
Even though it’s known as a party island, and most beaches are filled with crazy parties and loud music coming from the beach bars, there are also some quiet beaches that can be ideal places for you to do some work.
The best beaches on the island are secluded and calm, with gorgeous crystal-clear blue waters and golden sand. Who wouldn’t want to work in those conditions?
