1. Applying for digital nomad residency
The ideal situation is to apply for digital nomad residency from Spain, although it can also be applied for in the country of residence or nationality, through the consulate, but in these cases the procedure is much more complex. If you apply from Spain, the process is much faster and more effective.
To apply from Spain and prove that we are currently in Spain, we simply need to scan our passport and the entry stamp appears in the passport.
In the case of first arriving in another EU country, the entry stamp in the country’s passport together with a flight ticket to Spain is sufficient.
Another option is to apply to customs for a certificate that you have entered Spain. The last option is to go to a notary to certify that you are in Spain.
2. Main advantages of the digital nomad residency processed from Spain.
The digital nomad residency is very interesting because, among other advantages, it is a type of residency with a very fast procedure, by regulation they have a maximum of 20 working days to resolve the residency and normally, in our experience with our clients, they are taking even less than 20 days.
Furthermore, in the event that they do not respond within 20 working days, the residency is deemed approved by administrative silence according to the regulations themselves. In any case, we ask for confirmation that the residency permit has been approved by administrative silence in order to have the official confirmation.
There are cases of people who want to apply for this type of residency having a visa that is about to expire and has one month or less left, but this situation is not a problem to apply for the residency as a digital nomad, because according to the regulations, you can stay in Spain as long as the application for a residency is being processed, even if the visa expires.
If you want to apply for this type of residency with the whole family, the best way is for everyone to be in Spain at the time of applying, but if only the holder, the father of the family, is in Spain. We would apply for the residency first for the holder and, once his residency is approved, we would apply for the residency of the rest of the family.
In this type of case, the advantage is that it is requested from Spain for the rest of the family, although they then have to go to the consulate for a visa, but it is a preferential visa that is given with preference and is for having fingerprints taken. Well, technically it is a preferential visa. Then the reality is that it depends on each consulate.
This type of residency, the digital nomad residency, authorizes you to work as a freelancer or to create a company, and the family can work or study, or whatever they want to do.
