Both Citizens Advice Spain and Spain info appreciate the write up about the Digital Nomad Visa Spain info applicants in the informative magazine, A Place in the Sun.
This new visa has been a long awaited step forward for non EU citizens which now includes UK nationals. There is now the option to reside in Spain and to work remotely for a company/companies outside of Spain.
A lawyer working with the Spain info Card achieved the approval of what may be the first Digital Nomad Visa for an applicant. Furthermore the favourable resolution was given within 10 days of the application.
Applications for the Digital nomad visas are available for employees and the self employed.

2. You can work for a company located in Spain, as long as you maintain the professional relationship with the company with which you are requesting the authorisation. The percentage of said work with the Spanish company/s is a professional relationship (never employment). and does not exceed 20% of their total professional activity
They can be absent for a maximum of six months per calendar year to continue maintaining the requirements of rights under which the visa was obtained.
