What Makes Dubai a Popular City For Digital Nomads

As the world has gone into lockdown due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in early 2020, many companies and businesses had to turn to the solution of working remotely in order to go on. Through time, working remotely has become a thing. Dubai is the second most popular destination for digital nomads, as in anyone who prefers working from home. 

In October 2020, Dubai launched an innovative program that allowed overseas telecommuting professionals to live in the city while continuing to serve their employers in their home country. The move offers remote workers — and their families — the opportunity to relocate, on an annual basis, to one of the world’s leading tourist and business destinations and enjoy a safe and high-quality lifestyle supported by a solid digital infrastructure that offers connectivity.

“Very few countries have enacted legislation designed to attract foreign-employed workers. Instead, they only offer visas to those who take jobs on location, therefore missing the opportunity to bring high-wage earners to their cities without the need to generate new jobs”, said Nestpick.

Omer Kucukdere, founder and CEO of Nestpick, said the global pandemic has caused many people to reassess their personal priorities, revealing the benefits of remote working flexibility and prompting the question ‘is it really possible to work from home, anywhere.’

He said the last year really proved to many companies that remote working is not only a possibility but actually something that can be beneficial to everyone involved.
