No office required: Future of Immigration - Issue #1
This is the first issue of my newsletter - No Office Required.
NOR is focused on the future of work, market opportunities, remote work best practices, async communication, and leadership.
Who am I?
I’m currently working with the Product Growth Team at Oyster. Oyster have grown from five people to a hundred plus in the last 14 months, spread across over 35 countries.
Future of visas 🌍
With the acceleration of remote work, more people will be location independent. Remote work is also about bringing more opportunities to talent around the world, especially in emerging economies. This has huge implications. As borders between knowledge workers blur, what would happen to the imaginary lines we have drawn on maps?
Karoli Hindriks talks about the idea of borders and the future of immigration.
The current labour shortage bolsters the case for simplifying documents and procedures for cross-border employment.
A lot of countries are taking advantage of this paradigm shift. Estonia has been at the forefront of this digital innovation and introduced a Digital Nomad visa a while ago. Now, countries are racing to introduce digital nomad visas making it easier for people from all around the world to travel and stay in different parts of the globe.
The second and third-degree effects of remote work will be world-changing. Digital nomads won’t require permanent places to stay. Cities will be built around this concept. Co-living space for knowledge workers combined with local experiences will explode.
Take a look at the fastest growing remote hubs around the world
The future is exciting! 🚀
