|What problem are you solving?
|Tortuga eliminates many of the hassles associated with living a location-independent/nomadic lifestyle:1. Finding a nice, affordable place to live and work for an extended period of time takes far too much effort. Tortuga solves this problem by securing long-term, fully equipped accommodations direct from the locals at various levels of comfort and price points; high-speed internet included. Our co-working space is fully-equipped for an individual or team of any size.
2. New or aspiring location-independent professionals often worry about visas. Tortuga eases this worry by processing all visa, permits and extensions for our members. There is no need to leave and re-enter Seychelles or Mauritius, and members have the opportunity to stay up to 12 months.
3. Tax is a complicated issue for digital nomads who earn a living mostly online and from freelance clients all over the world. The Tortuga community have access to certified public accountants, who advise members on their tax obligations and help them remain compliant in their home country while working abroad.
