Who we are

Hi, I'm Daniela

I’m thrilled that you’d like to know more about me and the Digital Nomads Peru website.

In October 2014, I left my home country Germany and have been in Latin America since early 2017. When I first came to Peru in early 2017, the country wasn’t that popular among digital nomads yet and I found it difficult to gather all the information I needed. That’s why I eventually started this website.

Peru is my place of residence now but I still consider myself a digital nomad. I teach German online and write and publish books.

I’m an introvert (translates to: not being very social but normally quite nice) and a very down-to-earth person with an interest in languages, literature and technology. And I love to wear clothes by the Spanish brand Desigual as you can see in the picture.

My two grown-up kids Thiago and Jaciara are half-Brazilian and live in Germany. In the 1990’s, I lived in Brazil which is still one of my favourite countries in Latin America.

Hi, I'm Sergio

I’m originally from Argentina but have lived and worked in Lima for more than 15 years. As one of the founders of NVC Abogados, I’ve helped hundreds of people from all over the world to obtain their residence permit for Peru. As a lawyer, I specialize in immigration and taxes matters for foreigners.

I’m not a digital nomad but often combine work and travel and have become pretty interested in this lifestyle when I met Daniela. Therefore, I immediately agreed when she suggested to help her with the Digital Nomads Peru project and website.

I have to admit that she does most of the writing but I believe that I’m able to provide you with valuable background information about Peru and visas for Peru.

What can you find here?

Digital Nomads Peru focuses on the digital nomad lifestyle and on living and traveling in Peru. It aims to connect digital nomads who are spending some time in the country and helps nomads and other travelers with useful information about Peru. Like every blog, this website is a work in progress. It was launched in August 2018 and new content is added regularly.

Digital Nomads

The articles about digital nomads are mostly not Peru-related but refer to the digital nomad lifestyle in general. No matter whether it’s your dream to become a digital nomad or whether you’ve already set off exploring the world while making money online, you’ll find useful and inspirational blog posts here. This includes critical articles because like everything in life, nothing is perfect. Living as a digital nomad has its downsides and difficulties and can be challenging. However, it also offers incredible opportunities. For some us, it may be just something temporary, for others the way they want to spend the rest of their lives. Both options are fine. It’s your life and your decisions, don’t let anyone judge you. Never ever.

Residency & Visas Peru

On the DNP website, we’re regularly publishing articles about what it’s like to reside in Peru and what options you have to obtain a temporary or a permanent visa for Peru. It’s even possible to run a Peru-registered company without being a resident. All the legal information, you can find here has been approved by Sergio. If you have specific questions regarding your personal situation, you’re welcome to book a consultation with him.

Digital Nomad Interviews

DNP regularly publishes interviews with people who live the digital nomad lifestyle. They have different cultural backgrounds and different professions. We hope that you’ll be inspired by their stories.

Tips & infos about Peru

Digital Nomads Peru is not a travel blog but you’ll rather find useful information about the country which will come in handy if you decide to live in Peru temporarily or even permanently. This includes city guides, information about public transport, internet and nomad-friendly accommodation.

Facebook Group

Daniela  founded the Digital Nomads Peru Facebook group in 2018 as she has always found regional digital nomad groups very useful to connect and share information. It can’t and doesn’t want to replace the big groups like the Digital Nomad Girls Community (sorry guys but our female-only groups are pretty awesome – however, the Peru group is open for everyone). Feel free to join and ask any questions you may have.
