Recently, global travel restrictions have made it difficult for many of us to travel outside of the United States. With the majority of people no longer working in a physical office and unlikely to return to one in the near future, the itch to travel is even greater.

In response to the shift to remote work, a number of countries have made digital nomad visas available to foreigners — in the case of six countries, U.S. nationals are also eligible to apply. For those of us seeking a change of scenery, these are the six countries that you can move your virtual office to right now.
Antigua and Barbuda
Digital nomads earning at least $50,000 annually can live and work on the islands of Antigua and Barbuda for up to two years, thanks to the country’s Nomad Digital Residence Program. At the time of writing the cost to apply is $1,500 for a single applicant, $2,000 for a couple and $3,000 for a family of three or more.
To enter the country, visa holders must present a negative coronavirus test within one week of arrival, and are monitored for any symptoms for up to 14 days.
As part of Aruba’s recently announced One Happy Workation program, U.S. visitors can stay up to 90 days by booking a package-stay program at a participating hotel, villa or condominium. Applicants are not required to book a participating stay but the website includes many attractive options to choose from!
The Barbados Welcome Stamp program allows visitors earning at least $50,000 annually, including U.S. nationals, to stay on the island visa-free for up to one year. At the time of writing, the online application fee is $2,000 for individuals and $3,000 for families.Those traveling to Barbados for remote work or pleasure during the pandemic must follow new travel protocols.
U.S. nationals are able to travel to Jamaica, however the entry requirements vary depending on the state. Those who identify as business travelers will be given a coronavirus test upon entry into the country. While most travelers are given a 30-day visa on arrival, they can apply for the longer stay visa for digital nomads.
On August 1, the Republic of Estonia launched its digital nomad visa that allows foreigners to stay in Estonia for up to a year. Applicants must earn a gross monthly salary of at least 3,000 euros (about $3,530) for a remote job, which is an extension of Estonia’s e-Residency program for foreign entrepreneurs.
At the time of writing, U.S. nationals are not able to visit the country for tourism-related purposes, but they are allowed in for the purpose of work or study. On arrival, foreigners must self-quarantine for 14 days.
Lastly, on July 16 this tiny country bordering Russia and the Black Sea, announced a new program for foreigners to work remotely from the country. Applicants will be able to apply soon, and must provide proof of employment, as well as consent to self-quarantine for 14 days to be considered. As in the case of Estonia, U.S. Nationals are not able to enter Georgia for tourism, and must be granted a long-term visa of at least six months, traveling for business with a special permit or a spouse of a Georgian citizen.
While the “new normal” has made everyday pleasures like international travel difficult for many of us, select countries are beginning to open up their borders, particularly to digital nomads. If you have the flexibility and are already working outside of a physical office, consider one of the six countries mentioned above for a change of scenery.

For the vast majority of users, online streaming is now the preferred method for viewing TV shows, movies, sports, and events, as well as listening to music. While the portion of music listeners turning to streaming to get their fix varies by country, global statistics point to one undeniable trend: the popularity of online music streaming is growing at an incredible rate.
Research shows that streaming increased from 7% of the U.S. music market’s revenues in 2010 to a whopping 80% in 2019. The numbers also point to jaw-dropping growth in revenues from music streaming services by nearly 20% in 2019 to $8.8 billion, accounting for the largest share of the music industry revenues at 79.5%. Here, “streaming” refers to a range of services, including ad-supported services like Vevo and YouTube, ad-supported tiers of services like Spotify, streaming radio services like Pandora and SiriusXM, and premium subscription services like Spotify Premium, Amazon Music, and Apple Music.
Currently, the top three players in music streaming include YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music. YouTube Music saw a 980% growth in the number of active users between 2017 and 2019. The tech giant reports that more than one billion music fans use their services for streaming music, while their YouTube Music and YouTube Premium services currently boast a combined 20 million subscribers. At the end of March 2020, Spotify reported 286 million monthly active users (including paid and free), and current estimates suggest that Apple Music has around 80 million paying subscribers.
While we’ve drastically changed the way that we consume music thanks to music streaming, this global shift hasn’t been immune to controversy. We all remember Taylor Swift’s three-year boycott of Spotify and her feud with Apple Music over royalties. And more recently, there’s a growing camp in the music industry that cannot agree on a valid system of verifying streams to count them toward music ranking charts.
Music streaming services have vowed to work more closely with the music industry and artists. However, as the landscape inevitably continues to evolve, we can’t be certain that there won’t be more controversies in the future.
Regardless of which streaming service you go with, there are tens of millions of songs waiting for you to explore. Cruise on over to one of the top-three streaming services: YouTube, Spotify or Apple Music for an abundance of artists, albums and playlists that you simply won’t be able to get enough of. Record all your favorites with Replay Music so that you can enjoy them whenever and from wherever you are!

Drinking yak blood, eating a moose heart, and sleeping inside a camel… Think you could survive out in the wild? Maybe not… But you can watch all of Bear Grylls’ amazing wilderness feats from the safety of your sofa as he shows you how to survive when stranded in the world’s harshest environments. Brace yourself for edge-of-your-seat action in this series packed full of fascinating tips and stunning landscapes. It’s exhilarating, and educational, all at the same time.
Expect beautiful costumes, very “proper” British accents and some incredible scenery in this TV adaptation of E.M. Forster’s Howards End. Follow the Schlegel sisters as they embark on their journey to seek love and meaning in a world that clashes with their independent and unconventional sensibilities. It’s a period drama that packs a punch, and will quickly have you hooked.
This timeless British comedy series has been a favorite for generations, and for good reason. The show follows the trials, and more often than not, failures of Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson), a plotting and scheming character looking to do whatever it takes to secure an easy-going life for himself. Each season finds Blackadder and his useless sidekick Baldrick in a different time period, with a different boss and different challenges, but the same old disappointing results. Also starring Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, Blackadder is an age-old, laugh-a-minute series that’s not to be missed.
Nothing gets more British than a dark and stormy hillside, and Wuthering Heights is full of them. Starring Kaya Scodelario and directed by Andrea Arnold (of American Honey and Fish Tank), this is an exciting and fresh take on the classic novel by Emily Brontë. Get ready for brooding stares, wind-whipped landscapes and tension you could cut with a knife in this superb British adaptation of the all-time favorite book.
If we ever needed a reminder not to accept a ride from a stranger, then this should do the trick. Under the Skin stars an English-accented Scarlett Johanssen as the creepy, murderous, van-driving alien (yep, you heard that right) who preys on the unsuspecting men of Glasgow — picking them up, and leaving them never to be seen again. With striking and shocking imagery from director Jonathan Glazer, this movie offers a mind-bending experience that leaves you tip-toeing between the unwaveringly mundane of drizzly Glasgow, and the fantasy of Johanssen’s otherworldly underworld. You’ll leave this movie full of questions, but that’s all part of the fun.
Directed by Ken Loach, this Cannes and BAFTA winner tells the story of a widowed carpenter and a single mother who form a formidable bond in their struggle against the complicated and unforgiving British welfare system. Chronicling the reality of daily life for many working-class Brits just struggling to get by, I, Daniel Blake treats its characters with warmth and humanity, when the system treats them as nothing more than a number. It’s a heartwrencher and an eye-opener that will be sure to stick with you.
Nicholas Hoult stars as J.R.R. Tolkien, the incredible author behind the The Lord of the Rings series, in this biopic that covers Tolkien’s early life, career at Oxford University, and the friendships and relationships that defined him. Directed by Dome Karukoski and also starring Lily Collins, it’s a beautifully-shot movie that also takes us up to the outbreak of the First World War and the life-changing events that would inspire his famous Middle-earth novels. This one’s a must-watch for movie-lovers and literature-enthusiasts alike.
Acting heavyweights Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson and Emily Watson are unstoppable forces in this modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare’s King Lear. With the play (thankfully) cut down to a more manageable 2 hours, this is Shakespeare not as you know it: think martial arts, helicopters and British military uniforms, to name a few. Plus, with a star turn for Florence Pugh, there’s more than enough acting mastery for you to enjoy on screen. Don’t miss it.
