Croatia plans to amend legislation on the status of foreigners in the country to cover so-called “digital nomads”, people who use telecommunication technologies to earn a living and can perform their jobs from anywhere with internet access. Plenković made the announcement in a tweet, following a meeting with Dutch entrepreneur Jan de Jong, who resides in Split.

Plenković said he spoke to De Jong about the Foreigners Act and tweeted a picture of himself sitting with the Dutchman.

“Meeting with the Dutch entrepreneur Jan de Jong from Split on the new Foreigners Act, with which we will become one of the first countries in the world to legally regulate the stay of digital nomads,” the PM said in the tweet.

Plenković did not elaborate how Croatia planned to regulate the status of these workers.
