If you’re a digital nomad or “location independent” worker hoping to spend some of your freedom and adventure time in the United States, it is essential you follow U.S. immigration and work authorization laws. This means making sure you have the proper permission and documentation for the activities you have planned during your time in the U.S.
Factors to consider:
Who is paying your salary/wages?
Is it a U.S. company or a foreign company?
Are you working at a U.S. employer’s office location?
Are you working with clients based in the U.S.?
Are you soliciting work from U.S. clients as a freelancer?
If you are applying for a tourist visa, do you know what you are allowed to do on that visa, and how it relates to any work you plan to do while in the U.S. on that visa?
How long do you intend to stay in the U.S.?
Why does it matter?
What you do now can affect your future travels to the United States.
It may seem harmless telling little white lies to customs and border patrol when you enter the U.S. (indicating you’re visiting a friend when you’re actually working for a U.S. employer or clients) or checking “no” instead of “yes” on an ESTA waiver or other visa application may seem harmless. (How will they ever know, amirite?)
BUT - Think about how the world you now live in allows you to be a digital nomad, and all the ways technology has made that possible. The U.S. government is quite capable of finding out what you’re doing while in the U.S., as well as things in your past from your applications. If you’re caught providing untrue information, your ability to travel to the U.S. will be more difficult or even impossible. What are some outcomes of willful misrepresentation?
The U.S. does not have a “remote worker” visa or “digital nomad” visa, like some countries have introduced. However, it does have a number of other possible visa options, including a Tourist/Business visa, that could work depending on your specific situation and goals.
