Dubrovnik’s Positioning for Digital Nomads

Croatia was one of the first countries in the world to launch a digital nomad visa in early 2021 and has seen a fair amount of success in becoming a globally recognized hub.

Per a report, around 10,000 nomads stay in the country during any given month. The visa is valid for one year, but those who wish to stay longer might have to navigate some bureaucrat policies

Authorities are now looking to capitalize on the growing global trend of digital nomadism. With the recent boom in remote workers worldwide, Dubrovnik hopes to position itself as an ideal place for those seeking work and leisure.

The Digital Nomad Ambassadors in Dubrovnik project is just one of several initiatives to attract digital nomads to the city.

In addition to offering a range of coworking spaces and networking events, Dubrovnik is also working to improve its digital infrastructure, with plans to install public Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the city.

  1. Neat. I see these opportunities pop up regularly, especially in the Middle East from time to time on the Arabic Peninsula. One part of me loves the idea because enjoying time in a nice place and spreading the word in the process, receiving fringe benefits, works nicely. But I also love controlling my brand voice, online image and getting hyper clear on speaking a singular message. I see the benefits and drawbacks here for sure. Thanks for sharing the opportunity with us.
