8.Mexico

Son statut de séjour temporaire vous permet de résider sur le territoire mexicain plus de 180 jours et jusqu’à 4 années, mais ne vous autorise pas pour autant à y travailler : les digital nomads sont donc le cœur de cible de ce visa particulier ! Condition pour l’obtenir : justifier de ressources nettes mensuelles au moins équivalentes à 300 jours de salaire minimum mexicain (donc environ 2 150 USD ou 1 700 € par mois), sur les 6 derniers mois. Et d’un bas de laine représentant au moins 5 000 jours de salaire minimum mexicain (environ 35 750 USD, soit 30 000 €).

Its temporary residence status allows you to reside in Mexico for more than 180 days and up to 4 years, but does not authorise you to work in the country: digital nomads are therefore the main target of this particular visa! To obtain this visa, you must have had a net monthly income equivalent to at least 300 days of the Mexican minimum wage (i.e. approximately USD 2,150 or €1,700 per month), over the last 6 months. You must also have at least 5,000 days of Mexican minimum wage (about USD 35,750, or €30,000).

10. Mauritius

Who said that Mauritius was only for honeymooners? The atmosphere is indeed studious under the coconut trees with the "Premium" visa.
