The Australian city of Melbourne has been found to be the best city globally for remote working, according to a ranking by on-demand housing platform Nestpick.
Melbourne scored highly on livability factors such as safety, health care, culture and leisure activities, as well as its remote working infrastructure.
It was also just one of 10 cities in Nestpick’s rankings to offer a “digital nomad” visa — a specific visa or equivalent document allowing self-employed and foreign-employed remote workers to enter and work in the country. The others were: Zagreb, Prague, Lisbon, Reykjavik, Tallinn, Athens, Sydney, Dubai and Mexico City.
Nestpick’s study comprised of 75 global cities, which the platform chose based on the locations that were often cited as the “most livable” destinations.
