But the idea of working from a beautiful Caribbean island or a lovely European city with a laptop is tempting.
And the pandemic has brought home to the rest of the world what some of us already knew: This is not a pipe dream. It's real. And you can actually do it!
As the pandemic has progressed, more and more countries have realized the benefits of these "digital nomad visas."
It's a benefit to them to allow foreign workers or digital entrepreneurs to live and work in their country for more than just a few months.
Location Indie is all about the triangle of freedom - time freedom, financial freedom and location freedom.
That's why we've compiled a list of more than 25 countries that all have some sort of visa for digital nomads. Each country calls this visa a little different. Some countries have a simple procedure, while others have a more complicated one.
There are also countries that require a higher income or a larger bank account. So, not every country will be eligible for you.
But we bet there are a few countries on the list that not only appeal to you, but are suitable for you.
Just a note: This list is constantly evolving and changing, so we'll do our best to keep it up to date. However, always check the links provided as they will take you directly to the source.
Also note that there will be additional parameters at COVID. So check the appropriate websites for updated information.

The Bahamas, a collection of 16 main islands and many smaller islands and bays, are technically in the Atlantic Ocean but are grouped with many of the Caribbean islands.
Like many of the islands in this part of the world, the Bahamas are a bit more expensive.
This former British colony gained its independence in 1973. Interestingly, the Bahamas became a haven for freed African slaves. With the abolition of the slave trade in 1807 and 1834, the Bahamas abolished slavery. Thus, today 90% of the population is Afro-Bahamian.
The total population of the Bahamas is 385,600. The capital is Nassau, which is located on the island of New Providence.
What it offers:
