About visa

Digital Nomad is a new Spanish residence, which can be applied for starting from January 2023. If you work remotely and earn €2646 or more this residence is right for you! You can be either an employee of a foreign company or provide services as a freelancer/self-employed, both options work!

✅ Remote work for more than 3 months for a foreign company registered more than 1 year ago?
✅ Income more than €2646 per months (2 minimal wages SMI)?
✅ Relevant diploma title or 3-year work experience?

Three "yes"? You're a digital nomad!
Two ways to apply

🌍 At the Spanish consulate of a country of citizenship/residence
You will be issued a one-year visa, which can be modified to a three-year residence upon arrival to Spain. This visa can be either used only for entry and immediate modification or you can live in Spain the whole year and start the modification process two months in advance. However, if you grab the second option, you will not be able to get a residence card during this year. Moreover, this year will not be counted for a long-term residence in the future.

🇪🇸 From Spain
Legally on any visa/document, including tourist Schengen: apply at once for a three-year residence permit. Then it can be renewed for 2 more years.

Relocation made affordable, transparent and easy

Migrun is the greatest service for relocation – I have received my residence permit in Spain as a digital nomad in less than 1.5 months – from initiation to approval. The best thing about Migrun – they have many affordable solutions combined with lots of free guides, so you get the best value for your money. Plus you never feel pressured to pay more than you really need. Which is truly the mission of the company – to make relocation affordable, transparent and easy. Special thanks to Irina Degtyareva for helping with my case and questions! Looking forward to work with the Migrun team further. Many thanks!

Immigration service with emphatic and fair approach

My immigration to Portugal wouldn't happen if not for Migrun. First, they have a LOT of free guides of how to collect documents for different visas and residency types + a great chat with a lot of immigrants sharing their experience. A year ago it was a very simple website and a chat of a couple thousands - now an extensive platform and a family of useful chats on Portugal the largest being 10K people. I have collected all documents for D7 visa with their help for free.Later I changed my mind and decided to apply for residency as highly-qualified professional from inside of Portugal and did so with a great help of Migrun. Today I have received my residency card.Business with emphatic approach - unlike many other immigration services who just try to rip you off using your lack of knowledge.All people in Migrun have always been friendly, honest and trying to do their best.
