Have you ever dreamed of living in Paris or London, maybe even Singapore or Bariloche? Working remotely has not only made this possible, but it’s becoming more and more popular for Americans to start life in a new country. Montage currently has freelancers living in 14 countries around the world, including Jamaica, Chile, Costa Rica, France and Thailand!
There’s no official tracking system, but the U.S. Department of State estimates that there are more than 9 million American expats worldwide. Last year the number of Americans relocating to another country were triple the year before. Why? Quality of life, tax optimization, and education are some of the top reasons for relocation. According to immigrantinvest.com, Greece, Cyprus, Andorra, Portugal, the Caribbean and Malta are currently among the most favorable places for U.S. expats.
If you’re not looking to move your home base, working remotely makes it easy to travel without taking time off. If you have flexibility and the time to do a little research, you can find great deals on flights, hotels, and vacation rentals by booking ahead and traveling in the off-season.
The COVID-19 crisis forced businesses into doing what Montage freelancers have been doing for 15 years – working remotely. Employers have realized that many employees can be more productive, more efficient – and happier – when they have the flexibility to work from home. And in these times, home can be anywhere.
