I moved to Goa in the year 2020 for the obvious reason: health and better lifestyle. I have found that this place is awesome, despite of having a lot of challenges.

Why Work from Goa?

  1. Health: Your life reduces by 10 years if you live in Metro cities like Delhi because of the rising pollution. Goa is free from the pollution.

Entrepreneurs should consider that there is shortage of staff and business opportunities in Goa. The offices are very less, and rentals and property prices are extremely high. The high cost of living may also be a barrier.


It’s a preferred choice of freelancers as they can work from anywhere. The number of freelancers is increasing in Goa, day by day.
