The long-awaited Croatian Digital Nomad Visa has arrived! Although it is not a visa but rather a permit — a temporary residence permit, allowing non-EU citizens to stay in Croatia for a year. You can apply for the Croatian digital nomad visa at a police station or an embassy near you.

The buzz around the “visa” started in August 2020 after a conversation between a Dutch entrepreneur Jan de Jong and the Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković. Immediately after the meeting, the PM’s office tweeted their intention to become a digital nomad friendly country.

Changes made…

Today, the people of Makarska Riviera depend on beach tourism and the sea, but what defines them is the mountain. Our historical hike in Tučepi will demonstrate why.

The mountain Biokovo, the giant backdrop hovering over the coast, is the answer to all your questions about Makarska: why the sun shines here when it is raining everywhere else, why the beaches are so long and beautiful, why winter winds blow with such vigour.

Until recently only a few families fished, but most of them lived off the land — and the best and most fertile soil…


The Law on Foreigners was adopted by the Croatian Parliament last week only two months after the prime minister Andrej Plenkovic tweeted that Croatia would be the second country in Europe to be issuing Digital Nomad Visas. But it is still not clear what exactly you will need for the Croatian Digital Nomad Visa.

This news has sparked interest among the global digital nomad community, which is eagerly anticipating requirements for the visa. The main question being: Will there be a minimum income?

Is the digital nomad visa in Croatia becoming a reality? It seems so.

Beginning of August this year Estonia was first in the EU to issue a visa for remote workers living in the country but employed by foreign companies. Unlike similar visas issued by Germany and the Czech Republic, this visa does not require a ton of paperwork and assures a one-year residency in the country without any headaches.

Croatia decided to follow this example. Or at least, this is the rumour. Croatia does not issue these visas yet, nor has the Parlament discussed it.


Enthusiasm is life!

Without joy, you are as good as a dead man walking. Harsh but true. You find yourself heartlessly doing your daily routine, breathing air, fueling your body — staying on life support, but not living.

What is the best path to joy?

Freedom!

Are we not already free?

Freedom comes in all shapes and forms. Look around yourself. This year has wreaked havoc, and some people are affected directly. They lost their jobs or someone, or they become ill themselves.

Most people haven’t been affected directly, but are still walking around like empty gazed zombies. …

I had to pause. I recognized my town in the background. The VE removed all the houses digitally, but it was the town I grew up in.

While tourist strategies from other European countries, such as Italy and Greece, lean on their rich history, Croatia is tapping into the history of Westeros.

While the United States still haven’t reached the peak of the first wave of the Coronavirus, Croatia is preparing for the tourist season.

Private renters are vacuuming their apartments after the winter break, hotels are filling up their swimming pools, and restaurants are preparing their menus. But nobody knows if anybody is coming.

Croatia had one of the strictest measures in Europe, as a result, it is a step away from winning the first battle against COVID-19, but the battle for the tourist season is just starting.

The country’s economy depends on tourism and this summer will determine just how…
