It may sound somewhat absurd, but there are several countries in the world that are ready to provide material support to all those who decide to settle on their territory. True, not everything is so simple and you will need to observe a few key points.
The small village of Ponga, located in the province of Asturias in northeastern Spain, is famous not only for being one of the oldest settlements in the country and located in a protected area, but also for its generous (in the literal sense of the word) hospitality. The thing is that the authorities of this settlement dream of changing the economic and demographic situation, so they are ready to pay € 3,000 to each pair of lovers who are ready to settle in this wonderful place.

And despite the fact that there is practically no work in the settlement (which is why, in fact, the local residents left from there in search of a better life), many people from different countries, whose professional activities presuppose the opportunity to work remotely, decided to take advantage of this opportunity. True, they are all interested in one nuance – is there a high-speed Internet connection in the village and are there any interruptions with cellular communication?
For fans of America, we also found a very interesting offer. For example, the city of Detroit, which in the second half of the 20th century was called the “Paris of the West” and the “Automobile Capital of the USA”, is currently experiencing hard times and is trying to regain its former glory by all means. The city authorities even developed a special program called Challenge Detroit, which should attract specialists from various industries. It is assumed that professionals who have chosen Detroit as a place to live and work will be paid $ 2.5 thousand and will provide all kinds of support during the adaptation period. Continue reading
