For the first time, the Startup Law in Spain regulates international teleworkers, also known as “Digital Nomads”. Following in the footsteps of other European Union countries such as Portugal and Italy, the aim of these measures is to encourage the creation and development of start-up companies in Spain and contribute to the country’s economic growth.
This law includes a series of tax measures (special tax regimes), commercial measures (flexibility in the establishment of emerging companies, startups) and migration measures (adaptation and streamlining of the residency process). The latter allows remote workers from other countries to reside and work in Spain as self-employed or as employees of foreign companies.
Who can apply?
Third-country nationals (non-EU) who work remotely (work contract) for foreign companies or those who are freelance may apply for a residence permit to work from home from Spain.
AGM Abogados’ Immigration and International Mobility Department offers advice and assistance to digital nomads wishing to reside and work in Spain on the residency process, advising them correctly on all legal and tax obligations required to ensure a successful residency process.
