Greece is the latest spot to offer up its sandy beaches and blue watered islands to foreigners who work from home. All in an exchange for helping their economy get back on its feet.
It also promises to make half of their income tax-free, according to Bloomberg Wealth.
Technology means we can now choose where we live and work.

Per the report, the country knows its had a better COVID-19 run when compared to other places and wants to use this leverage to convince people to pack up and move to their country.
Additionally, the government also wants to reportedly bring back investments to Greece following years of economic hardships and "turning around the country’s performance in the wake of a decade-long debt crisis."
The current tax rate is 44% for earnings over $47,000 the report said, but the new incentive would only apply that to half of your income. This tax break plan will apparently also be of use for up to seven years, no matter your nationality or job.
The country "can now offer tax incentives as well as the sun," Alex Patelis, chief economic adviser to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in the report.
