Save the Date: Zagreb Digital Nomad Week Announced for June 21-27

April 29, 2021 - The Zagreb Tourist Board has announced a 'Save the Date' for Zagreb Digital Nomad Week 2021 for June 21-27.  The digital nomad buzz is getting louder in Croatia.

Where once the beach was the main attraction, today lifestyle - and longer-term living - is attracting a new breed of tourist, the digital nomad.  With three unexploited tourism treasures of safety, authentic experiences…

Dubrovnik's Digital Nomads are in Residence: Meet Them! (VIDEO)

April 24, 2021 - Dubrovnik's 10 digital nomads are in residence. Meet them all in their one-minute application video.  The eagles have landed.  Organising an international competition to help Dubrovnik establish its digital nomad identity was always going to be a challenge in the current environment, but the initial challenges have been overcome.

Kristina Grbavac Talks Taxation of Digital Nomads in Croatia

April 23, 2021 - TCN meets the director of the Taxation Services Department at KPMG Croatia, Kristina Grbavac, to discuss the taxation of digital nomads in Croatia. Croatian tax and immigration legislation were amended in 2020 to welcome digital nomads to Croatia: a digital nomad visa was introduced and income based on the acquired status of a digital nomad became tax-exempt and relieved of the tax reporting obligation in Croatia. Even though it might look like all tax matters are covered with this exemption, there are still some open questions to be considered by digital nomads.   Kristina Grbavac, director of the Taxation…

 April 23, 2021 - Congratulations to PR agency Vajt and our favourite Dutchman Jan de Jong for winning the 2021 HUOJ International Grand Prix Award for PR in institutions, NGOs and associations for that Croatian digital nomad permit.

Journey to Get the Croatian Digital Nomad Permit

 April 18, 2021 - The number of successful applicants for the new Croatian Digital Nomad Permit is slowly increasing. Delighted to welcome Steve Tsentserensky to TCN, with a great first piece on the journey and the timeline.  March 26th, 2021 – Zagreb The email is in Croatian. They’re always in Croatian. Which makes sense because I’m in Croatia and it’s the government that’s writing to me. There’s a moment of terror because, ya know, I don’t speak Croatian and I’m certain this email holds the fate of my next 12 months within it. December 8th, 2020 – New Jersey “Will…
