This presentation on the Telework and Digital Nomad opportunity was delivered by Martin St-Hilaire, CPA, Chairman of the FCA, to the Vanuatu authorities as the COVID19 pandemic shut down all tourism in the country.

  • COVID19 has accelerated the rise of telework; many employees will stay remote past the pandemic.
  • Knowledge workers from developed countries can work from anywhere they please: they’re “Digital Nomads”.
  • They can get tourist visas around the world but those are short-term and often cumbersome – and that’s before COVID19.
  • Tourism destinations with low infection rates are now courting teleworkers either to make up for lost revenue or add a new revenue stream.
