Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia, has been identified as the top city in the world for UK employees to work remotely, according to research conducted by Currys. This makes it a great option for a weekend getaway.

The computing and tech retailer analyzed 268 cities worldwide. They ranked these cities based on factors such as monthly rent, basic utility price per month, broadband speed, safety index, and the length of stay allowed for UK citizens. Each city was given a score out of 10, resulting in a total score out of 50. The city with the highest score is considered the best location for remote work.

Tbilisi received a score of 37.68 out of 50 because it has affordable living costs and is generally safe. British nationals can use Georgia’s digital nomad visa to work remotely in the city for up to a year. For the first 183 days, there are no taxes to pay. After that, employees become tax residents and have to pay a 20% tax rate.

The city has a low broadband speed, averaging at 26.9 megabytes per second. Although this speed may be sufficient for small work-related tasks, it may not be fast enough for people who stream games.

The city has affordable living costs, with an average rent of £179.84 for a one-bedroom apartment outside the city center and utilities costing around £44.31 per month. The internet connection is fast and it is also safe to live in.

Bucharest in Romania is ranked third, with a score of 36.16 out of 50. It received a high ranking for having affordable rent, fast internet, and a good safety index score.

A spokesperson from Currys Research stated: “We compiled the index by using various data sources to gather the necessary statistics for each factor.” The average rent prices, cost of utilities, and safety index were obtained from Numbeo. The broadband quality was obtained from Ookla. Visa requirements were obtained from Wikipedia and verified through individual research. The score for each factor was on a scale of 1 to 10, and the overall score is out of 50. The locations with scores closest to 50 are considered the best for remote workers to work from anywhere.
