The bill initiated by the USR PLUS parliamentary group defined the “digital nomad” as being the foreigner who works under an employment contract with a company registered outside the Romanian borders, or the foreigner who exercises an economic activity through the intermediary of a company registered by himself outside Romania. and could undertake the given work remotely, using information and communication technologies.
“This legal initiative was developed after months of work in collaboration with the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Digitization, as well as with experts working with the Ministry of the Interior and with the Ministry of Business foreigners. I started the project because I was convinced that it was a law to attract finance researchers to Romania, as many other Member States have already done. I am happy that such a legal initiative is of interest to all public institutions, and that we will unite our efforts to promote Romania abroad and develop the national economy! Today, more than ever, a legal framework is needed to attract resources; therefore, I wish to offer Romania a twenty-first century legal instrument for these purposes. Declares the deputy Diana Buzoianu, initiator of the bill.
Concretely, how will the digital nomad visa help you?
A serious plan for the implementation of the digital nomad visa will position Romania at the top of the member states that will tap into their national economies for financial resources, foreign investments and even allow future digital nomads to set up new businesses in Romania.
Thus, if Romania attracted a certain number of only 2,000 digital nomads each year, who would spend an average of 2,000 euros per month, in one year, this means that around 50 million euros would be attracted to the national economy, which translates into a great impact for the Romanian economy.
States that have regulated the legal framework for digital nomads include Germany, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Croatia, Norway and other non-EU states such as Costa Rica, Georgia, Dubai, Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Barbados. , Antigua, Mexico, Australia and Thailand.
