Estonian digital nomad visa finally starts to get implemented

estonian digital nomad visa finally starts to get implemented

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The Estonian parliament on 3 June adopted amendments to the current laws to create a digital nomad visa that would allow people to come to Estonia as a tourist and at the same time continue working for a foreign employer or as a freelancer independent of location; starting from 15 July, people should finally be able to start applying for the new visa.
According to the newsletter of the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board, the bill became a law on 1 July, but its implementation acts have not so far become valid. “Presumably, people can start applying [for the visa] from 15 July 2020; should this date change, we’ll inform of this additionally,” the police said in the newsletter.
The new digital nomad visa is meant for people who work remotely and therefore travel around to different countries. “The digital nomad visa will enable foreigners whose work doesn’t depend on their location to work in Estonia. It can be issued both as a short-term (C-type) or a long-term (D-type) visa,” the newsletter asserted.
The Police and Border Guard Board also pointed out that when applying for the digital nomad visa, the general visa conditions are applicable. “Even though [digital nomadism] is a …

The Guardian view on arts freelancers: they must not be forgotten | Editorial

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The £1.57bn rescue package for the arts that the UK government announced on 5 July was both absolutely necessary and rightly welcomed. The funds ought to be sufficient to sustain Britain’s artistic and cultural infrastructure until the spring. Had they not materialised, institutions such as the Royal Opera House would have faced collapse by Christmas.Yet theatres, concert halls, opera houses and arts centres are only the pipes through which art flows. While it is clearly important to keep this infrastructure functioning, it is of absolutely no use on its own. Indeed, the purely physical infrastructure is, by and large, the problem in terms of Covid-19, since it presents the issue of mass gatherings indoors. It is the work – art made by freelancers – that matters, and that audiences pay to see.Freelancers, however, were missing from the announcement, and absent from Rishi Sunak’s supposedly jobs-focused summer statement. The overwhelming majority of the cultural workforce in Britain is freelance, more than 70% in theatre alone: self-employed set designers, artists, musicians, technicians, actors, directors, composers, sound engineers, stage managers and many more kinds of creators and skilled workers. This compares with 15.3% across the whole economy. The government’s support scheme for the …

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

For many business leaders, it took a pandemic to recognize that we live in an unplanned world that needs better support for a workforce that is global and digital. And this overhaul goes beyond working from home.advertisementadvertisementThis modern-day situation has shown us that getting remote work to succeed requires a fundamental shift in considering what “working remote” really means. This process means removing hierarchical structures and enabling speedy “hyper decision-making.” It means supporting a myriad of existing and new touch points as part of the multi-experience economy. It means designing our businesses with both customer and employee experiences in mind, in equal measure.This is the new reality we are transitioning to as the world begins to reopen; one where we must balance in-office and remote workers with more care than before COVID-19. We must employ a “work from anywhere” mindset that takes into a range of considerations including where our employees can best serve the needs of the business—wherever that might be.There have been several important lessons learned as we help prepare us for a “work from anywhere” mindset:Human connection can exist without in-person connectionThis fact was proven long before the pandemic with people all …

Spread the love
Freelancing is a very scary and risky business. It is very fulfilling to be your own boss and make a living doing what you love but due to the lack of security, many do not do it. Alexandra Fasulo moved to New York in late 2015  and after a month of working at her public relations job she decided to quit and never look back. 

The fact that she had no job quickly sunk in and she scrambled to find a new source of income. She had started a Fiverr account before to earn some extra cash on the side but it suddenly became her main source of income. She decided to post nine new services for five dollars each and it came as a shock once she woke up and saw the immense amount of orders. They were coming in at seven, eight or nine each and by the end of her first day she had made $100. She was ecstatic by her success and could hardly contain her happiness. She was not used to success at this magnitude and was almost not able to fulfil all of the many orders at first but soon enough she got …
