Veteran Nomads, Blogger Couple Launches Nomad Visa Calculator

Date:

Digital Nomads and founders of the blog ‘Goats on the Road’ recently developed and launched a tool to help aspiring digital nomads determine the destinations they can travel to based on their annual incomes.

The Digital Nomad Visa Calculator tool uses a database of the minimum income requirements of the various countries offering digital nomad visas to suggest destinations that fit your budget. 

One need only enter their annual income in the field provided, and the website will produce a list of eligible countries. 

The calculator, a startling success among the traveling community worldwide since its development late last year, has been featured on Forbes, NomadList, and countless publications over the past few weeks.

The calculator tool first appeared in a blog post where one of the blog’s founders, Dariece Swift, writes about ’12 easy digital nomad visas.’ 

The 12 countries which made the list include:
