Türkiye Digital Nomad Visa: What We Know [April 2024]

Last Updated on 22 April 2024 by Brittany

There is a new opportunity for remote workers on the horizon! With the new Türkiye digital nomad visa, remote workers can relocate to this beautiful country, formerly spelled and referred to as Turkey. 

Announced on April 15, 2024, the government of Türkiye announced its official invitation to remote workers with the Türkiye digital nomad visa. While we are unsure of exactly how long the visa allows digital nomads to live in Türkiye, Nomads Embassy will update this article as new information is released. 

The goal of the Turkey digital nomad visa is to attract digital nomads from select countries to specific areas of Türkiye, including Antalya, Marmaris, Bodrum, Fethiye, and more. 

Türkiye joins Mediterranean countries such as Greece, Cyprus, Malta, and Italy in welcoming remote workers to relocate and temporarily live in these beautiful destinations. 

As the government releases more information about the Türkiye digital nomad visa, we will update this article accordingly.
