Important Information

  1. In order to work in Spain ( specifically Madrid), you will need an NIE. An NIE is a work permit that is required for any non-residents planning to work anywhere in Spain. This is a very simple process which can be completed in two ways. You can either open a Spanish bank account or provide an employment contract. However, if you are already a member of the European Union and you’re coming to Spain to work, you are able to use the NIE from your own country and validate it in Spain!
  2. Madrid is a safe city for women and LGBTQ+ members, which is something digital nomads should research before settling down in any area if they fall under this bracket.
  3. There is no beach in Madrid! So if you’re looking for a nature-filled seaside place to reside, the city may not be for you.
