South Korea Introduces Digital Nomad Visa for 2024

South Korea [is launching a digital nomad visa](https://www.forbes.com/sites/kaitlynmcinnis/2023/12/31/korea-officially-announces-new-digital-nomad-visa/?utm_campaign=socialflowForbesMainLI&utm_source=ForbesMainLinkedIn&utm_medium=social&sh=59986df831c9) on January 1, 2024, allowing foreign remote workers to stay for up to two years, catering to [the growing workcation trend](https://flamingoapp.com/what-is-a-workation/). Applicants need to provide documentation to the Korean embassy, showing an annual income above $65,000, employment verification, a criminal record check, and private health insurance. They must also have a minimum of one year's experience in their field and be at least 18 years old. This new system extends the stay options beyond the current short-term visa or 90-day visa-free limits.
