Nomads, how much do you earn? Another poll!


by @baia | 5yr  | 0 comments

Hi,

I often wonder how much nomads earn or where do I stand compared with other people in my field. I know it depends on a trillion factors and it doesnโ€™t even have the same impact depending on where the person lives. Still, Iโ€™d like to get an idea of how much you guys are making. And since my idea of creating this poll seemed to appeal to @levelsio himself here we go :smile:

How much, before tax, do you earn on average per year? (remember itโ€™s completely anonymous!)

How to get post abroad for UK Expats??

 

by @davda1546 | 1d 1 day ago | 0 comments

Hi guys, wonder if you can help. I'm from the UK, and my husband and I are looking to go across Europe this coming year.

What's the best solution you've found re having all your post sent to you? I've found a site online that will set up a street address in the UK for you and scan in post to your email address, just wondering if you've found any other ways?

We've set up paperless statements, which has helped but with things like mortgages, official docs etc - how have you got around it?

Thanks so much!

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?

 

in Poland by @davda1546 | 2d 2 days ago | 0 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay?

 

in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 5d 4 days ago | 0 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

Driving from Italy to Croatia..how to handle passport?


in Croatia by @ld | 14d 13 days ago | 3 comments

Hello, we are US citizens that have been able to stay in Italy past our standard visa stay due to covid. Now we must leave. We want to drive to Croatia as our โ€œout of EUโ€ stay. But Iโ€™m now wondering what considerations I need to take care of for my visa. I wonโ€™t go through an airport and get my passport stamped. But I assume I need to get my passport stamped as a way to prove Iโ€™m out of the EU.

Anyone else travel in and out of Schengen zone via car? Or know what I should do to properly handle the visa situation? I get unclear answers online. Hmm.

Appreciate your help!

Introduce yourself โ€” who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo | 18d 18 days ago | 672 comments

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.

We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.

You know the ones - where are you from, whereโ€™ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.

The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but theyโ€™re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So letโ€™s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • whatโ€™s your name?
  • where are you from?
  • how long have you been away from home?
  • what do you do?
  • where are you currently?
  • where are you going?
  • what has been memorable for you so far?
  • will you go home anytime soon?
  • what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
  • [insert your own question here]

**

No need to answer them all if you donโ€™t want to :smile:
But the more you shareโ€ฆ The merrier!

Best/quickest way from Italy to Croatia?


in Croatia by @ld | 20d 20 days ago | 3 comments

Hello,

We are in Umbria until August 31. We've been here since March, but crisis-level visa extensions are over. After that we have to leave the EU. We would like to stay out of the USA (our home) due to it's covid crisis, at the same time we want to be responsible about travel. Ideally we would not travel at all, rather stay hidden in the countryside of Umbria forever until covid is more under control globally, but here we are!

So we must leave the Schengen zone. We should avoid USA. We should avoid long air travel.

We were thinking Croatia.

Do you recommend a route to Croatia? We are open to long train rides. Ideally not long ferry rides. Is there a ferry route under 4 hours? I read about it...I don't see it. If not, the other option is to make our way north and up over to Croatia via train.

I'd appreciate your thoughts and insights!

Thanks.

Where should I set up my company as a remote worker?


by @beloruchka | 24d 24 days ago | 6 comments

Iโ€™m looking for any recommendations for services or people others have used to get answers on the best place to set up their businesses based on their personal circumstances.

Leaning towards Singapore after a ton of research, but would really like some concrete advice before jumping in.

Appreciate it!

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 25d 24 days ago | 1 comment

Iโ€™m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. Iโ€™ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

App/tool/service for nomads to bring things from another country?


by @brmolin | 10mo 10 months ago | 4 comments

I vaguely remember hearing about such a service before, but Iโ€™m drawing a blank on the name. Basically I left my tablet on a connecting flight in Europe, right before my main flight to Thailand. They have my tablet and are willing to ship it out for me, but people have warned me thereโ€™s a big risk of it getting โ€œlost in the mailโ€ if I ship something expensive like that to Thailand.

Iโ€™m wondering if thereโ€™s a service or community, where I can find a nomad whoโ€™s in Europe/heading to Thailand soon, so I can have it shipped to them in Europe and pay them to ferry it down here for me? I met someone in Budapest a ways back who had built something for this type of use-case, but I canโ€™t remember the name of it. Any help would be appreciated!

Re-Registering Self Employment to Another Country


by @hello513 | 2yr 1 year ago | 5 comments

Hi!
Iโ€™m doing research about how I can register as a self-employed to another country, and I want to ask for some advice.

I have a Hungarian citizenship. I spent the last 4 and a half years abroad. For two years now I have a registered self-employment in Denmark. During this time I have always had an address there even though I was physically there for only half a year. My address was registered at a friendโ€™s place. I want to get rid of my self-employment there due to the language difficulties and high taxes. And here comes the difficult part.
I donโ€™t want to register self-employment in my home country as Iโ€™m not planning going back and I donโ€™t feel supporting it with my taxes (I know, itโ€™s more personal than practical). I thought about Ireland (where I lived half a year twice), but the biggest problem is the address. I donโ€™t have plans of settling down yet, but if I donโ€™t have an address I canโ€™t have a self-employment. Somewhere I read that itโ€™s an option to get a real address, then changing the business address to a mail forwarding company.

Iโ€™m looking into what opportunities I would have to register self-employment somewhere (not in my home country), and continue nomad style of moving from country to country frequently. Is there anyone who had been in a similar situation?

Living in one EU country with a residence from another EU country?


by @robetus | 3yr 3 years ago | 8 comments

I really thought this had already been asked on here but couldnโ€™t find anything specific. Apologies if it has been asked before and a link would be greatly appreciated. Iโ€™m a US citizen and if I have a residence permit for one Western European country that states I only have to live in the country for 6 months out of the year can I live in another European country for the other 6 months. I plan on EU country hoping every other 6 months to avoid becoming a resident of more than one country.

Is anyone doing this now?

Any experiencie airmailing your stuff to yourself when moving from one place to another?


by @chelocoach | 4yr 3 years ago | 5 comments

Hi there!

Iโ€™m going Nomad in about 3 months. Mainly Iโ€™ll stay in some places for at least 1 month, but Iโ€™m planning some backpacking trips in between movings. So Iโ€™m planning to travel carry-on only on this trips. But I also would like to carry with me some non-indispensable stuff that helps me to keep up with my lifestyle and work on the places where Iโ€™ll stay for a longer period. For example a blender, coffee and an Aeropress to prepare my bulleproof coffee. Also my guitar, some camera gear, a good quality screen to work, etcโ€ฆ

Except for the guitar, everything fits into a medium size luggage.

I know I can check in this stuff when moving. But if Iโ€™m going to backpack I donโ€™t want to carry this stuff around.

  • Is airmailing this stuff to myself a good option?
  • Any experience on this?

Iโ€™m a newby on this lifestyle so any advice is welcome :slight_smile: . Many thanks!

Advice on remote working, taxes & moving to another country


by @magalhini | 4yr 4 years ago | 4 comments

Hi there!

I realise this isnโ€™t the right way of asking for legal advice, but Iโ€™d appreciate some initial loose pointers on where to go and what to do.

Iโ€™m currently working for a company which is UK-based (full-time contract), where Iโ€™m paying my taxes, own bank accounts, and so on. However, being a remote worker, Iโ€™ve been working from Berlin this year and for personal reasons, I really donโ€™t want to move back to the UK.

So, being aware that I would need to spend at least 90 days in the UK if I want to continue to legally work, what are my options to avoid this entirely?

  • Should I register as freelancer in Germany and have my company employ me as a freelancer? Would this exempt me from the 90 days rule? If so, what would happen to my pension scheme in the UK?

  • Should, if itโ€™s possible at all, still be employed by this company (non-freelance) but pay my taxes in Germany instead of the UK? Again, is this wise and would it exempt me from the 90 days in the UK rule? (the company has no German affiliate)

Funny enough, I canโ€™t find an available accountant in Berlin to ask all of these questions, hence why Iโ€™m hoping some of you wise folks would point me in some direction :slight_smile:

Thank you!

How do I apply for a visa from another country?


by @mkoehler | 5yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

Hi guys. My plan is to travel from country to country, spending about 2 months in each country respectively. For most countries you can only apply for a visa about 2-3 months prior to your visit and some like China, require you to apply from your home country or country of residence. How do I know apply for visas for my second, third and fourth destination? Say Iโ€™ll apply for a China visa in South Africa (where I live), go to China for 2 months, then I want to go to Thailand for 2 months. Letโ€™s assume I cannot apply for a China and a Thailand visa while still in South Africaโ€ฆ how do I go about that. And then, once I leave Thailand for say Vietnam, same question again. Do I have to go to the respective embassys in the countries Im staying in and apply for my next destination?
Thanks for your feedback and help in advance!

What would you like to learn?


by @munly_leong | 5yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

Just had this fun idea, what would everyone like to learn? especially if it may assist/enable/continue your nomad life possibly in another direction? I was thinking that if there was to be a nomadforum retreat this could be useful for all of us to figure out ideas for talks that we could give to teach each other :slight_smile:

Starting with me.
Internet Marketing/Analytics - Iโ€™m already diving headfirst into this currently as part of dropshipping but itโ€™ll probably be awhile before Iโ€™ve got enough experience to do this for others. Seems to be something that can co-exist well with bootstrapping.

Xamarin mobile development - Not a strong priority depending if I need to contract or if there are even remote roles out there to contract on. Currently it seems the typical full stack JS/Rails type dev is far more in demand in a remote capacity.

Unity/Unreal game engine - Ironically most of my Unity experience comes from actually successfully debugging or helping rewrite friendsโ€™ projects despite having no experience building anything of my own yet lol. Often similar problems that occur with any game development or engine though, yay for experience :wink: Similar to Xamarin the problem is laying the down the foundation for time to focus but my most immediate projects wonโ€™t be built in either quite yet.

Can I be a resident in a country with a company in another country?


by @marcoschwartz | 5yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

Hello there,
I am currently staying in Poland, and Iโ€™d like to stay for more than 6 months which would make me a resident of this country. I really donโ€™t want to open a Polish company (I donโ€™t know the language, there is an initial capital requirement, etc).
So my plan would be to open a limited company somewhere else in Europe first (for example Ireland), then apply for residency in Poland (I am a EU citizen so thatโ€™s no problem), and finally from what I understood I need to declare a โ€˜branchโ€™ of my Irish company in Poland.
Does somebody here have some experience with that? Is that legal? Thanks!

Nomads, how do you generate your income? Let's do a poll!


by @jchatard | 5yr 5 years ago | 3 comments

Hi nomad girls and nomad boys!

Iโ€™m a full stack programmer, DevOps kind of thing, book authorโ€ฆ Bref, I own a company based in France, and Iโ€™ve been traveling around the world for more than a year because I was fortunate enough to have my company running with all my clients. Nowโ€ฆ

Because I canโ€™t really get a precise sense of what digital nomads do for a living. Reading from topics, blogs, stories, etc. Itโ€™s difficult to have a global picture of how skills are spread around different fields. So I was thinking that a poll would help me, you to figure this out!

What do you do for a living while traveling ; being a digital nomad?

Here are the 2 questions for you! :grinning:

First: what type of contract / legal status?

  • Freelance
  • Hired by a remote friendly company (including Toptal & co)
  • Entrepreneur (running a website, webservice, webshop, etc.)

0voters

Second: From what skill is your main income coming from?

  • Software development (front, back, security, whatever)
  • UX, graphic design
  • Hosting
  • Marketing / social media / SEO
  • Writing (blog, book, articles, journalist, translator, etc.)
  • Advertising / affiliation
  • Sponsoring
  • e-commerce
  • Photography
  • Tourism (hotel, restaurant, โ€ฆ)
  • Financial related activity
  • Training
  • Otherโ€ฆ(surfing, karaoke, youโ€™re rich and thatโ€™s it)?

0voters

I know my proposition might not be complete, but if a moderator wants to add more answers, feel free to do it :blush:

Iโ€™d love to have more insights, especially if you fall in the Otherโ€ฆ category from the last question!

Cheers!,
Jรฉrรฉmy
