Lum Kamishi from VisaGuide.World, revealed that the low-income requirement that applies to get a nomad work visa in Spain along with the lower costs of living compared to the other countries in the list, are some of the factors that makes Spain the most convenient choice for remote workers.

“It’s also simple things that increase the quality of life for a digital nomad, like good internet speed, the possibility to live there for a year without paying taxes, and the low taxes in the second year.” Kamishi said as per SchengenVisa.Info.
