Interested in spending a year working remotely from Estonia? Estonia launched their Digital Nomad Visa on August 1, 2020 -- inviting digital nomads to spend up to 12 months in Estonia.

"Medical care in Estonia falls short of Western standards outside the larger cities such as Tallinn, Tartu, and P?rnu. Many medical professionals in Estonia are highly-trained, but some hospitals and clinics still suffer from a lack of equipment and resources. Many doctors speak at least some English. Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers overseas only accept cash payments. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage," wrote the US State Department.

Culturally it is a dream, with the concert hall and opera house performing 9 mos of the year, and best seats at only 11 dollars. You can join the Academic Library and check out books in English and many other languages," advised one expat in Tallinn.
