Residence application for international teleworkers.
With effect from January 1, 2023, Spain presents important assets for the attraction of highly qualified professionals from a third country (nationals of an EU or non-EU country), who carry out their activity, on their own account or on behalf of others, through the exclusive use of computer, telematic and telecommunication media and systems: the so-called digital nomad.
Said residence and work authorization is governed by Law 14/2013, of September 27, which establishes that two specific cases may occur:
1. In the case of a work activity for someone else, the holder of the authorization for international teleworking may only work for companies located outside the national territory.
2. In the event of exercising a professional activity, the holder of the authorization for international teleworking will be allowed to work for a company located in Spain, as long as the percentage of said work does not exceed 20% of the total of its professional activity.
What is the duration of the nomadic visa?
The international teleworking visa will be valid for one year, extendable for a period of 3 years, unless the work period is shorter, in which case the visa will be valid for the same period.
