August 3, 2021 – So what is life like in Croatia for those who get the Croatian digital nomad permit? The second ever recipient was Jess Romano, who moved from San Francisco to the island of Hvar back in October last year. She fell in love with Jelsa and managed to find a way to stay there via the permit. Jess has recently been featured on the podcast About Abroad, where she talks about her experiences both with island living in Dalmatia as a remote worker and the permit process.
From About Abroad:
Today’s guest is Jess Romano, an American who made the move to the Croatian island of Hvar. She’s one of the first people in the world to receive the brand new Digital Nomad visa, which allows remote workers to come and live legally in Croatia! Jess walks us through the process to get the visa and the requirements to do so. She also takes us inside island life in a small village and shares how the sense of community and beautiful landscapes has led her to feel like she is living on vacation every day.
