Hi all, I am looking for apartments to rent for 2 months starting in late January 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. I know of AirBnb, vivareal.com, easyquarto.com, and one Rio apartment FB group. Any others out there? Thanks

Think you have the most important sites.

Focus on Ipanema, Leblon, Copacabana, Leme or Botafogo/Flamengo location wise. In that order :slight_smile: . Ipanema and Leblon are by far the best areas to stay, with the nicest beaches, Lagoa (lake), bars and restaurants. Copacabana is ok. Itโ€™s cheaper, but more run down. Leme is a nice small neighborhood (at the end of Copacabana), but itโ€™s quiet and further away from the metro. As youโ€™ll probably be spending a lot of time in Ipanema/Leblon, I would stay in Ipanema/Leblon or somewhere close to the metro. Botafogo/Flamengo are nice in their own way. Botofago has a nightlife as well, but way more alternative.

Make sure to download Uber and Easytaxi. They are great! Get in touch if you have any questions. Spend over 3 years in Rio, so know know my way around & happy to help.

Eager to find out what age most start out as a DN? (Me)โ€ฆ 27 and just started out in the last 6 months or so. Not presently 100% location independent, probably more like 90% as still required to visit the office from time to time

How to get a UK residence address without renting/buying?


by @pavel_maximov | 2mo 1 month ago | 17 comments

Background:
Iโ€™m an EU national IT specialist, recently decided to become a digital nomad. I just left my permanent job in Germany and opened a UK based LTD (for a better taxation) to start a new career as remote working IT contractor. I also want to become a UK resident and pay personal income tax there BUT I donโ€™t want to rent/buy a place because I have no interest in physically living in the UK, as a nomad I will be traveling abroad 100% of the time.

So I just need a UK address where Iโ€™m registered as a resident and could receive mail, but I would never actually be there. I could rent a place and keep it empty but that would be a total waste of money.

Question:
How do I find somebody who could give me an official residence at his/her address and keep my name on the door? Iโ€™m ok with paying a reasonable monthly fee for this โ€œserviceโ€ (but not as high as a rent), and give assurance in whatever form that I will never pretend to physically live there. I have no close friends in the UK to ask for this favor, and trying to propose this to a random landlord would be just weird since they are not familiar with the needs of a digital nomad.

Maybe you guys can suggest me somebody who understand the situation and want to make some extra cash every month to pay the bills? Iโ€™m ready to meet in person, provide full proof of identity or any other document, and to make a written agreement that gives the landlord the freedom to cancel this โ€œsituationโ€ at any time.

Note:
This is NOT for tax evasion, itโ€™s the opposite! I WANT to pay full tax as UK resident, I just donโ€™t want to waste money on a rent which I will literally never use.

I would be very grateful for any advice!

Can you recommend any great freelancing videos?


by @nikk | 2mo 1 month ago | 0 comments

Hey Community, Did you ever come across any YouTube videos that sold the freelancing gig to you? That taught you how to freelance? Where to start? The good and bad points of freelancing? or just follow any YouTubers that specialise in freelancing (for inspiration)?

I'd be interested in learning more...

Thanks in advance.

Any Ph.D students dissertating while a digital nomad?


by @larsheather | 4mo 4 months ago | 5 comments

Anyone know of any groups or resources for Ph.D. students working on dissertation while living as a digital nomad? I know there are several virtual writing groups around, but wondered if there were any specifically for digital nomads, particularly those who are dissertating.

How do you deal with โ€œproof of addressโ€ for banking and investing and other random stuff?


by @eljaques | 5mo 4 months ago | 6 comments

How do you guys deal with the dreaded โ€œproof of addressโ€ for banking and investing and other random stuff?

I donโ€™ have the option to have a family member do this for me, sadly (not wanting to use that country as residence for tax implications).

This has to be a pretty regular problem for most who arenโ€™t doing the old timey โ€œlive in one place and pay bills there foreverโ€ thing. Suggestions? Services? Hacks? Workarounds?

Issues with not being a tax resident anywhere?


by @lightworker | 5mo 5 months ago | 2 comments

Anyone with knowledge regarding complications of not being a tax resident anywhere in the world? Iโ€™m aware that primary health care, bank account opening and incorperation can be problematic but are there other practical or legal factors I should be aware of?

And what about paying myself salary from a self-owned OECD company? I would like to know if I risk potentieal issues with the tax authorities in the jurisdiction of the company, especially regarding withholding tax.

Appreciate your input!

What investment options are open to e-resident?


by @64tankman | 5mo 5 months ago | 1 comment

I know from experience that if you have residential status in countries where IG (a broker) serves, you can buy stocks and other assets through this broker. But I wonder what doors to the stock market, asset market or broker can be unlocked with e-residency? Some banks open a terminal for customers to buy assets overseas too, is one of the e-residency friendly bank offering a good portfolio of assets to invest in?

How do you deal with the fear of leaving for the first time?

 

by @eddie | 1yr 1 year ago | 32 comments

Hey everyone!

Iโ€™m getting ready for my first trip abroad alone (this Oct). I decided on Chiang Mai because I feel like it might be the best place to get my feet wet. Plus Iโ€™ve been planning on going to Thailand now for about 3 years. Dream started 3 years ago, started my business 2 years ago, finished college/moved out of my parents 1 year ago, left my part-time crutch job a few months ago and now I make enough online to be location independent.

But now that my dream is becoming a reality, Iโ€™m actually kinda scared. Just thinking about boarding a plane with only a backpack in my possession is liberating but also frightening. Probably the craziest thing Iโ€™ve done in my life and Iโ€™ve worked so hard to get to this point.

Iโ€™m sure that most people here had to deal with the fear of leaving for the first time, the uncertainty of what will happen, and maybe even some resistance from your family. Iโ€™m just wondering how you dealt with it? Maybe I just need to re-read some of the books (4 hour workweek, vagabonding, The $100 startup, etcโ€ฆ) that gave me the motivation and courage to start in the first place. What motivates you to keep going?

Thanks!

What's the best warm destinations in Europe in the winter?

 

by @jammingsloth | 1yr 1 year ago | 33 comments

Planning ahead for the winter. Iโ€™ll be in Spain in the Fall and want to go someplace warm for the winter in or near Europe, but not Schengen. Was first thinking Cape Town, but the internet is slow and it is very far. Was also thinking:
Israel - but airbnb listings are very pricey.
Morocco?
Turkey - maybe a little chilly.

Any other suggestions?

How to be sure of new tax residence?


by @analogmario | 1yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

Hi, Iโ€™m new here.
I am moving out forever.
So I am going to move to another country my residence.
But, in the new country I donโ€™t plan to spend more than 90 days a year for sure, at least itโ€™s not the plan for the first years.

But I want to be sure that my tax residence is in my new country, even if I spend less than 90 days a year.
I want to be sure I wonโ€™t be reclaimed by my original country or any other country that I might end up spending less than 180 days, but more than the less than 90 I expect to spend in my new country(looks like itโ€™s going to be Portugal).

Hope that was understandable.

Does anyone know where I can get information about this kind related to nomadism?

Thanks

Staying outside major cities?


by @malaclypse | 1yr 1 year ago | 7 comments

My question is about the actual experience of staying outside of major cities, as well as where/how (on this site or elsewhere) to search to find questions and discussions about the same.

Sometimes I like being in the big city, but sometimes I like being away from it. For many people with โ€œregular jobsโ€ you have little choice but to be in a big metro area since thatโ€™s where the jobs are; for me, part of the appeal of considering DN is sometimes being able to work someplace quiet, remote, secluded and beautiful- rather than a concrete jungle.

Iโ€™m curious whoโ€™s actually done stuff like this. Because while it sounds great, I could also imagine all sorts of unpredictable problems that might not be an issue when one is way off the beaten path that wouldnโ€™t come up if one were in a big metro area.

Which countries should I live in from june to december?


by @alexandersupertramp | 1yr 1 year ago | 1 comment

Hi everyone, :wave:

I want to live abroad from June to December 2019 as a digital nomad.

As I live near Paris the plan is to run away from this high cost of living, crazy stressful life and to live in places of good quality of life.

I think it will be nice to live in a few countries (going twice to the same country is ok for me).

I am already looking for places to go on the website but if I can have some feedback from those who already have a good experience in traveling I would be happy :slight_smile:

I think countries in Asia such as Indonesia (I went to Java and Bali last year for a whole month), Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines would be great.

Which places that would suit my needs do you suggest me ?

My criteria are :
-low cost of living : I was self-employed but now I am creating my own online business so during the creation process until I can have a minimum viable product, I wonโ€™t have any income and will live on my savings.
-safe place : Even if there are beautiful and not expensive countries in Central and South America, unfortunately it doesnโ€™t seem to be safe at all. I donโ€™t want to be a victim of extorsion, kidnapping, assault, terrorism, piracy, etc. I know there is no such place on earth but some areas are more risky than others.
-places suitable for work : cafรฉs with wireless internet, coworking spaces. No need for optical fiber, an internet connection that is good enough to load regular websites is fine.
-not a big city : I am not a city person so it would be a pain for me to live in capitals or other big cities. I think Ubud is the maximum for me as far as cars, buildings, amount of concrete are concerned (I went there last April and I appreciated it because people are friendly, there is no huge concrete towers, some quiet and soothing places to chill). People may not be a problem as long as I donโ€™t feel stifling.
-good quality of live : quite peaceful (far from poisonous stress of modern occidental countries), nice landscapes (In France I live near an airport and a power station with fields of transmission towers so I need mountains/seas/forests, in short, nature), not over polluted.
-Even if I will not be there for vacation, I want to be able to get away from my screen in order to discover the country a little (especially hiking in nature and some visiting some cultural places) and have a social life so I donโ€™t want to be isolated and lonely in a place where I would struggle finding a grocery store, a restaurant, a bar, a gym, a diving center, etc. and meet no one. However, I just want to live a simple life so I donโ€™t care about crazy night lifestyle like in really touristic cities, I donโ€™t care if there is not a night club/bar/restaurant in every street corner and I donโ€™t need a place with thousands of things to do.
-vegan-friendly

Do such heavens exist ?

Thank you for your help
