Digital Nomad Visa Applications & All you need to know
Are you a digital nomad looking to live and work remotely in Spain? The Digital Nomads Visa offered by Artemis Law provides you with the opportunity to establish yourself in Spain while engaging in work or professional activities outside the country.
Digital Nomads Visa: General overview:
The Digital Nomads Visa, recently introduced for Spain in December 2022, allows non-EU citizens to live and work remotely in Spain. This visa program is designed for individuals who wish to work for employers or clients located outside of Spain. Applicants must have a graduate or postgraduate qualification, vocational training from prestigious institutions, or a minimum of three years of relevant experience.
The visa distinguishes between employed and self-employed workers, with different provisions for each category. Employees can exclusively work for companies based outside Spain, while self-employed individuals can telework for both Spanish and non-Spanish companies, with a maximum of 20% of their professional activity allocated to Spanish companies. The Digital Nomads Visa is typically issued for one year, and individuals may apply for the Digital Nomad Residence Permit to extend their stay. Artemis Law provides comprehensive assistance throughout the visa application process, ensuring compliance with requirements and making your transition to remote work in Spain seamless.
The Digital Nomads Visa is available to non-EU citizens who wish to carry out employment or professional activities remotely. To be eligible, you must fulfill the following criteria:
1. Hold a graduate or postgraduate qualification, or possess vocational training from recognised prestigious institutions, or have at least three years of relevant experience.
2. Depending on your employment status, you may work for companies based outside Spain as an employee or as a self-employed individual. If you are self-employed, you can telework in Spain for companies based both inside and outside the country, with the restriction that no more than 20% of your total professional activity can be dedicated to companies located in Spain.

Once the documentation is assessed and all the requirements are met, a visa will be issued for a maximum duration of one year. The Digital Nomad Visa allows you to reside and work remotely in Spain for a specified period.
Within sixty calendar days before the visa's expiration, you have the option to apply for the Digital Nomad Residence Permit, provided that you continue to meet the conditions that initially granted the right.
