The world has changed substantially due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
As the name suggests, a digital nomad is someone who enjoys a nomadic lifestyle and uses his or her computer to work remotely while outside their country of permanent residence.
However, a remote worker is not per se a digital nomad even though digital nomads are by necessity remote workers.
The difference lies in the fact that remote workers can conduct their work from home which is their permanent residence instead of from an office.
A digital nomad visa is the document or program that gives someone the legal right to work remotely while residing away from their country of permanent residence.
