The top spots for remote workers

Remote work means working from anywhere, not just working from home. But anywhere is a big place. With so many options, how can you choose?

We searched the globe to find the best destinations for remote workers. In our research, we evaluated thousands of locations across seven key factors:

Internet infrastructure

Where are the fastest and most reliable internet services?

Attractiveness

What are the natural, urban, cultural, and other factors that make a destination great?

Safety

Where can remote workers live and work safely?

Quality of life

Where are residents the happiest?

Openness

How welcoming are people in different places, and how transparent are their governments?

Cost of living

How much does it cost to live in one place compared to another?

Incentives for remote workers

Which locations offer incentives, like cash bonuses and special visas, to welcome remote workers?

We weighted each of these factors equally to find out which places in the world are the most welcoming for remote workers. To see which locations made the cut, download the full report.

Find the perfect destination for you

Not everyone has the same priorities. Maybe top internet speeds are non-negotiable for you. Perhaps you want to keep your cost of living low. No matter what your preferences may be, we have the answers you need.

Whatever you expect, prepare to be surprised. These are not your average remote work destinations rankings. Svalbard has polar bears and a population of under 3,000 people. Madeira is far less popular than Lisbon. We could have come up with yet another classic list — but we were committed to finding what everyone else has overlooked, including special incentives for remote workers.

Not every destination will be right for everyone. But why limit your horizons when there is so much more to discover?
