Spain Digital Nomad Visa Requirements

The requirements for the Spain Digital Nomad Visa are as follows:

  1. The Digital Nomad Visa for Spain is available to citizens of countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. Check with your country of origen for visa eligibility.
  2. The applicant has been employed at their current organization for at least three months.
  3. The company must authorize you to work remotely. They must issue a signed letter authorizing you to work remotely. All the functions must be carried out remotely.
  4. The company you work for must have been incorporated for at least the last 12 months.
  5. If you are a freelancer or a company owner, you must prove that you have had a commercial relationship with one or more companies for at least three months.
  6. Applicants must have a clean criminal record history.
  7. As an employee of a company, you must have comprehensive health insurance coverage that is valid in Spain. 
  8. As a self-employed or business owner you will commit to register as self-employed in Spain once the permit is granted.
  9. Must demonstrate sufficient economic resources to support themselves during their residency. The amount represents 200% of the monthly minimum wage (SMI) plus at least 75% of the SMI for the first accompanying family member. 25% of the SMI will be required for each additional member to the two persons mentioned above.

It is important to note that in all cases, the companies authorizing remote work must be located outside of Spain. An exception would be in the case of a self-employed individual or contractor in which the holder of the digital nomad visa may work for a company located in Spain, provided that the percentage of such work does not exceed 20% of his total professional activity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Always from the condition that your work can only be carried out exclusively through computer, telematic and telecommunication means and systems, there are two possible scenarios:

  • Employment relationship: You can only work in Spain for a company or companies located outside the national territory for which you are teleworking.
  • Professional relationship: You can work for a company located in Spain, as long as you maintain the professional relationship with the company or companies with which you request the authorization, you work for the Spanish company/s under a professional relationship (never labor) and the percentage of such work does not exceed 20% of the total of your professional activity.

Yes, the spouse or person with analogous relationship of affectivity, minor or adult children who, being economically dependent on the holder, have not constituted a family unit by themselves and dependent ascendants, who join or accompany the foreigners may apply, jointly and simultaneously or successively, for the authorization and, if applicable, for the visa.

Applicants of the visas or authorizations of residence of telework of international character will have to prove that they have economic resources for themselves and for the members of their family in accordance with the following amounts:

  • Holders of the visas and residence authorizations: amount that represents monthly 200% of the minimum interprofessional salary (SMI).
  • Family units that include two persons counting the holder and the regrouped person: at least 75% of the SMI. A 25% of SMI will be required for each additional member to the two mentioned persons.

You will always have to present your bank statements for the last 3 months showing the receipt of the income. Additionally, you can also present the payslips, invoices, contracts, certificates of the displacing company, etc.

The residence and work permit process is independent of the Tax regulations and its authorities. If you stay in Spain for at least 183 days in a year, you will become a tax resident.

However, many countries have signed a Double Taxation Agreement with Spain to avoid charging additional taxes.

We will need to understand how the tax authorities will treat this income and the general requirements for worldwide income in Spain.

Our Tax colleagues can provide more accurate information, percentages and amounts regarding your tax status. 

The holder must have health insurance from a company authorized to operate in Spain.

Our immigration lawyers can verify whether the insurance provider meets the Ministry’s requirements. Most international insurance providers do not meet these requirements. 

The policy must have the same cover as the Social Security does without co-payments to avoid medical tourism.
