A new visa has made it simpler to live the Italian dream

Billionaires may now own underwater superyachts; Turkey and Italy may soon have the busiest airport in the world; and new digital nomad visas are available.


New visas for digital nomads

Many people have the desire of moving overseas and starting over, and new visa initiatives and tax breaks are helping to make this goal somewhat more attainable. In addition to the popular digital nomad visas for Portugal, Spain, and Costa Rica, there are now two more choices for remote workers.

Turkey’s new digital nomad visa, available to nationals of 36 countries, including the US, Canada, France, and the UK, is ideal for seeing the country’s dynamic cities and stunning coastline. It is valid for travel from age 21 to 55. A minimum monthly income of $3,000 or $36,000 annually is required.

Applications are currently being accepted for Italy’s much awaited digital nomad visa. Non-EU/EEA nationals who are considered “highly skilled” may be able to remain there for a year as long as they can prove they have a place to live, have health insurance, and make more than $30,000. If you’re interested, you must schedule a face-to-face meeting at the Italian consulate in your home nation. You can navigate the red tape with the assistance of the Italian Consulate General in London.

He describes the village of Latronico, which is located in the southern area of Basilicata, as having “just such a slower lifestyle.” The town “will help me relax, for sure.”

lofty goals

An Australian millionaire has been spearheading efforts for almost ten years to construct Titanic II, a more seaworthy re-creation of the tragic ship that perished in 1912 but continues to pique people’s curiosity worldwide. This is his motivation.

Meanwhile, a business based in Austria plans to construct millionaires’ underwater superyachts. These playthings, shaped like Bond villains, were 166 meters (545 feet) long and could submerge for up to four weeks at a time. Why? Well, that’s a matter for the wealthy.

Investing money straight into space is another fast way to spend it. In other words, you may use it to pay $164,000 for a balloon journey that will take you 40 kilometers (25 miles) above the ground to see the Earth’s curvature.

Errors, misconduct, and mishaps

In the US, a bison wounded a man who was suspected of kicking it at Yellowstone National Park, and the guy was taken into custody. Additionally, a couple from Utah sent their pet cat back to Amazon by mistake. Thankfully, they had a “miracle” reunion three weeks later.

In other headlines related to transportation, two cruise guests, ages 81 and 84, had to rush to catch up with their ship after being left behind in Spain, and Australian tourists were left stranded after a low-cost airline collapsed.

And lastly, there was unrest in paradise when four Americans were charged with smuggling live ammunition into Turks and Caicos in several situations. Although judges are free to exercise discretion, the violation carries a potential 12-year jail sentence.
