The CNBC list of the safest cities in the world for digital nomads was heavily influenced by the 2022 Global Peace Index.

1. Iceland

Iceland leads this list. The island nation provides a digital nomad visa, which is a long-term visa for remote work. It allows approved applicants to stay for up to 180 days if they earn around $7,200 per month and do not intend to settle here.

2. Auckland, New Zealand

New Zealand does not have a specific digital nomad visa. It has a working holiday visa that can be used for this purpose for up to a year in most cases or up to 23 months for British and Canadian citizens. You must, however, be an adult of at least 30 or 35 years old, depending on your country. 

3. Portugal

Portugal provides a D7 visa that can be used for those looking to work in a safe environment.

An annual income of around $10,000 is required, and those who are accepted can stay for a year and, most likely, beyond.

4. The Republic of Czechoslovakia

Individuals looking to stay in this particular country will most likely apply for the Zivnostenske opravneni or Zivno. It allows for a stay of up to a year at first.

5. Hungary

Those who are accepted into the program can stay in Hungary for up to a year with the White Card. A monthly salary of at least $2,000 is required.

6. Croatia

Croatia's digital nomad visa is valid for a year and can be renewed. It has been operational since January 20, 2021.

7. Germany

Those who want to reap the benefits of what Germany will have to offer, along with its safety, should pertain to the country's Freiberufler visa.

8. Norway

Svalbard has the only true digital nomad visa usable in Norway. However, one significant advantage is that there is no time limit. If you have a Norwegian client and want to stay on the mainland, you could apply for an independent contractor visa.

9. Australia

Australia, like New Zealand, does not provide a specific digital nomad visa, but it does offer a working holiday permit for adults up to 30 or 35 years old, with a stay of up to a year.

10. Mauritius

This Indian Ocean island country provides a Premium Visa to individuals who wish to find employment as a digital nomad for up to a year. It is regenerative.
