Non-Lucrative Residency Visa

The Spanish Non-Lucrative Residency Visa offers non-working residency to British Citizens and other nationals of non-EU countries, who have the financial means to support themselves without working.  The Spanish Non-Lucrative Visa scheme is ideal if you are retired or have passive income, for example from a portfolio of properties or other investments.  The Spanish Non-Lucrative Visa initially grants a one year residency permit allowing you to live in Spain fulltime.  After the initial year, it can be renewed for 2 years and every 2 years thereafter as long as you continue to meet the qualifying criteria.

Digital Nomad Visa

The Digital Nomad Visa was launched in Spain in December 2022.  It is aimed at citizens of non-EEA countries and is now available to individuals who want to live in Spain and work remotely.

The Digital Nomad residency scheme offers a special resident status, including tax capped at a flat rate of 24% for up 5 years, to those that qualify.

Aside from the general rules which apply to citizens of third countries applying for residency in Spain, applicants for the Digital Nomad Visa must be able to prove that they are contracted, either employed or self-employed to companies or clients outside of Spain.  This visa is therefore ideal for teleworkers, and freelance consultants such as those working in the IT industry.
