What is a freelance visa?

A freelance visa is the residence authorization that will allow you to live in Spain for one year while you work as a self-employed individual. Nevertheless, when taking into consideration the Spanish Immigration Law, there is no residence permit called “freelance visa”. The official name is work permit as a self-employed worker, also called “autónomo” in Spanish. 

Our lawyers will help you obtain your work permit in record time:

Requirements for the freelance visa

  • Qualifications. It is required to submit your CV, which much includes education and past experience related to the business activity you are planning to start working on.
  • Business plan and viability report. You should also demonstrate, through your business plan, that your activity as freelance will generate enough turnover to sustain its activity over time. Any of the corresponding authorities will analyze it, and once they approve it, emit a viability report.
  • Documents. In order to get your self-employed work permit, you will need to provide a copy of your passport, the application form EX-03, criminal records, the business plan, health insurance, and proof of sufficient funds.

Application process

As we are talking about a general work permit, it is crucial that you start the application process from your country of origin, and not directly from Spain. After submitting all the documents to the Spanish consulate or embassy, you will get a visa, with which you’ll be allowed to travel to Spain and obtain your actual residence card.

Once in Spain, the process must go on. Now you will need to establish yourself as a registered worker in the country. For that, you must enroll in two different institutions: the Tax Agency, as you will need to declare your incomes and pay taxes quarterly; and the Social Security, as you will need to pay a monthly contribution. 

We have been managing successfully the visa application procedure for many citizens from all around the world for more than 40 years, and we want you to be the next one. Are you ready to start working as a freelance in Spain while enjoying the wonders of the country?
