Following the direction of Portugal, the Spanish government has just announced a move to introduce a Digital Nomad Visa.
The visa programme aims to attract international talent from outside the European Union.
Applicants must be remote workers, self-employed, or employed by a non-Spanish company.
The remote worker must also meet the government’s minimum income requirement for the Spain Nomad Visa which is likely to be twice the national minimum wage in Spain, or at least €2,100.
Details regarding the application process for the Digital Nomad Visa in Spain are yet to be fully clarified.
“Spain has long been a destination of choice to non-EU remote workers, and we are looking forward to seeing the unfolding of the Visa program there,” said Patricia Casaburi, MD at Global Citizen Solutions.
Spanish Nomad Visa holders are permitted visa-free travel across the European Union’s Schengen Area.
