Forecasts of the World Economic Forum show that, in the future, four of every 10 European Union workers will be fully remote. There has also been a significant increase in the number of remote employers in Latvia in recent years, both those based in Latvia and abroad. Additionally, the number of employees who live in Latvia, but work abroad remotely have increased. These processes indicate that migration is increasingly moving to the digital environment. However, is Latvia a suitable place for remote workers? What should be changed to make the working environment more friendly to remote workers?

The online conference ‘digital migration: work.future.community.,’ which took place on October 21st and 22nd, presented the latest research on this situation, both globally and in Latvia. International and local experts, politicians, and representatives of various sectors discussed what changes should be made in Latvian and European laws and regulations regarding international, remote work and how to improve it. “Digital Nomads” and the entrepreneurs who employ them presented their own experiences. The conference built the foundation for the introduction of a digital nomad visa in Latvia.
