Top 3 countries in Europe where it is good to work remotely

The Fourth Industrial Revolution has forever changed the way we work and where we work, and there is no denying that completely remote jobs, which allow employees to be stationed anywhere in the world, are one of the most attractive benefits. From tax benefits to an enviable work-life balance, the benefits of working from home are many, but what better place to set up shop? And is it as easy as picking up a laptop and checking in?

We’ve picked three of the best options in Europe based on cost of living, tax benefits, ease of travel and sense of adventure. We’ve also rounded up some of the best remote jobs currently available on NextPit, in case your current role isn’t a good fit for Mediterranean winters.

Best places to work remotely in Europe #1: Greece

Besides being an Instagram inspiration, Greece has become one of the preferred countries for remote workers thanks to its generous tax benefits and open visa policies. The Greek immigration law was enacted in 2021 and offers remote employees a 50% reduction in income tax and social security, while the digital nomad visa allows third-country nationals (outside the European Union, European Economic Area and Switzerland) to work remotely for a maximum of one year.

Add to this the relatively low cost of living (depending on where you settle), pleasant year-round climate and relaxed lifestyle, and it’s easy to see why Greece is quickly becoming an option for digital nomads.

Best places to work remotely in Europe #2: Portugal

Home to the happiest city in the world (Lisbon, according to a recent iVisa survey) and boasting some of the most generous tax breaks in all of Europe, Portugal is a favorite country for remote workers. Passive Income and Unusual Residence Tax benefits include tax-free foreign income and cryptocurrency.

In addition, the income and length of stay required to qualify for these benefits are much lower than in some other EU countries. Add to that one of the lowest cost of living rates in Europe and you have the perfect remote workplace.

Best places to work remotely in Europe #3: France

France may not be the first choice for nomads due to the high cost of living. However, it is interesting to note that for housing, utilities and energy, they actually rank lower than countries such as Spain, Austria, and Belgium.

After Brexit, France remains open to non-European travelers thanks to the Schengen visa, which allows eligible travelers to spend 90 out of 180 consecutive days in the country.

With this in mind, Paris is a great option for remote workers, as it is located in the Central European time zone, which means that people who work for US or Asia-based companies are not too bothered. De plus, la culture des cafés existants est habituée à ce que les travailleurs à distance occupent de l’espace, de sorte qu’il n’est pas difficile de trouver du Wi-Fi rapide, du café à volonté et des endroits ou regarder People.
