Spain could soon introduce a digital nomad visa that would give non-EU nationals the chance to live and work there for up to five years.
If the scheme is approved, the country will join a number of other European nations that have introduced some form of digital nomad scheme in the last few years including Italy, Greece and Croatia.
So how could the new digital nomad visa make living and working in the country easier and cheaper? Who will be able to apply for Spain's digital nomad visa?
Anyone looking to apply for a digital nomad visa will only be able to get a maximum of 20 per cent of their income from Spanish firms.
Official sources have indicated that digital nomad visas in Spain will originally be valid for 12 months, renewable for up to five years depending on the applicant’s circumstances. Close relatives, such as a spouse or children, will be eligible to join the applicant.
Spain is expected to offer tax breaks for digital nomads working and living in the country under the visa scheme.
