Digital Nomad Visa (tax-free visa)

Immigration & Residency

The Digital Nomad Visa was approved in Spain on the 23rd of December 2022. It is popularly known as the 'tax-free visa', because applicants don't pay any taxes on their income and assets abroad.


It allows you to work remotely from Spain.


The main advantage of a DNV is that it grants its applicants a special tax regime whereby they pay very few taxes in Spain as opposed to the standard IRPF (personal income tax) sliding scale. Succesful applicants pay no tax for assets or income held abroad Spain.


The DNV is extensive to family members i.e. spouse and children under the age of 18 years old.


Applications are now open for this visa. Please contact us to get the ball rolling.
