Spain’s Digital Nomad Visa 

Are you a remote worker or a company looking to expand your operations in Europe? Spain’s Digital Nomad Visa gives an exciting opportunity for non-EU nationals to live and work in this vibrant country for up to five years. With its low cost of living, excellent internet infrastructure, and rich culture, Spain has always been a preferred destination for digital nomads and remote workers. Now, it’s easier than ever to establish your base in Spain and take advantage of its many perks.

This visa not only benefits freelancers looking to work in Spain but also offers an excellent solution for companies that wish to extend their operations in Europe by sending their employees to work from Spain.

The Digital Nomad Visa was introduced under Law 28/2022 as part of the Entrepreneur Law. It caters to non-EU nationals seeking remote work opportunities with companies located outside of Spain.

Aside from bringing residency and freedom of movement around the whole Schengen area, the Digital Nomad Visa also brings along tax benefits, making it even more appealing. Visa holders can take advantage of a special tax regime and pay non-resident income tax rates (IRNR) instead of the higher resident income tax rates (IRPF). This means enjoying a significantly reduced tax rate of just 24%, thanks to the renowned Beckham law.
