Hey James, you can discover some great workspaces on Go-Spaces co. Allows you to try out a few before you get a membership somewhere. I personally like Frizzant, if you like working from a Cafe or La Vaca Coworking ๐Ÿ™‚

I've an assistant taking care of my Digital Nomad visa for me.

PM me if you would like for me to let you know when the process is open.
Hacienda still hasn't clarified things. I actually had a chat today with a law firm re the Beckham law (though EU citizen) and they were expecting the clarifications on how to apply the regime any time now (meaning next few weeks)
stevedee 12d
Hi guys, does anyone know if Tenerife is a good area for Digital Nomads? I've heard mixed reviews, but I quite like the sound of having good weather April-May, would be interested to hear anyones thoughts. Cheers, Steve
Any one have any recommendations for a cross border accountant? Specifically for individual tax filings. Tax regions being US-Canada-Spain.

Hey everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹ planning on coming to Spain in April-May for about 5 weeks. Considering Madrid, Valencia or Seville at the moment.

โ€ข Seems like Seville has barely any short term flats or coliving-style places. Only 3 results on Flatio, and theyโ€™re pretty expensive. Am I just looking in the wrong places?
โ€ข Really keen on Madrid too and thereโ€™s obviously a lot of options there.
โ€ข Would anyone recommend Valencia? Found a couple good coliving spots for good prices and the city looks great, but I donโ€™t hear as much about it compared to the others.
felixh 10d
Iโ€™ve stayed in Valencia in December, I enjoyed it very much! Itโ€™ll be much warmer than Madrid and itโ€™s a bit smaller/less tourists. The old river converted to a park is neat.
duncanb 10d
Thank you! Sounds great, one of the places Iโ€™m looking at is close to that park I think

Been to all three. Madrid is huge and busy, I didnโ€™t really like it there much. Seville is easily walkable and has some amazing historical sites that are well worth a visit.

Valencia is my favorite of the three, Iโ€™ve been there the most often. Itโ€™s between the two cities in terms of size, also very walkable and generally has a great vibe, good restaurants, cafes to work from, etc. Plenty of nomads around, I know a few who have now settled there more or less permanently. In terms of co-living, Iโ€™ve visited Vivarium for a โ€œfamily dinnerโ€ because a friend was staying there. Seems like a good spot and the owners are really nice, but I havenโ€™t stayed there myself yet. You can also get reasonably-priced Airbnbs. I recommend the area of Ruzafa, itโ€™s pretty laid back with nice cafes/bars/restaurants/coworking and close to the center, but also Ciutat Vella (a bit busier but more beautiful) and La Gran Via are great places to stay.

Hey nomads, I am looking at moving back to Barcelona with my partner. We are both thinking of near Turo Park or Poble Nou. Any recommendations on those ?

What did you use to find your perfect homes ?

Already using idealista.

ludzcxkb Amazing! Thanks so much for all that info, really useful. Iโ€™ve been leaning towards Valencia, and coincidentally Vivarium is the main one Iโ€™ve looked at too! Looks really good, I enquired about availability last night

Sevilla is not worth more than two weeks tops, in my opinion, so 5 weeks might get a bit boring
Any tips for activities in Madrid for a first timer ? My friends are going and they asked me but I actually have never been the couple loves music culture museums good wine and culinary experiences and they have twins that are 8years old

Any tips greatly appreciated

hey everyone, anyone rented a van on lanzarote? how was it? do you recommend any specific van provider? ๐Ÿ™‚ i was shocked that lanzarote is almost twice as expensive as fuertaventura ๐Ÿ˜„ anyone knows any accomodations that are a little cheaper than airbnb/booking?
Here's what ChatGPT recommends:

Here are a few tips for activities in Madrid for a first-time visitor:

Visit the Prado Museum to see some of the world's greatest works of art, including pieces by Velรกzquez, Goya, and El Greco.

Take a stroll through Retiro Park, a beautiful green space in the heart of the city that's great for picnics, people-watching, and boat rides on the lake.

Explore the historic neighborhood of El Barrio de las Letras, where many of Spain's most famous writers and poets lived and worked.

Take a day trip to the nearby city of Toledo, known for its well-preserved medieval architecture and stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Check out the local music scene. Madrid has a vibrant nightlife and there are many venues that offer a range of live music performances.

For the twins, They can enjoy the "Parque de Atracciones" a theme park with a lot of attractions for kids.

Enjoy some of the delicious local cuisine, such as tapas, paella, and churros.

Try some local wine, Spain is famous for its Sherry, Tempranillo, Garnacha and Verdejo wines.

Lastly, make sure to walk around Gran Via, one of the main shopping street in Madrid with a lot of history and architecture.
Aaah you super star she will be so stoked with the tips - thank you
Hey nomads, American here first time flying overseas to Madrid in March. I booked my ticket one-way, b/c|according to the gov't>, Americans can stay in the Schengen area 90 days in a 180-day period, and I plan to travel b/t Schengen countries during those 90 days. I have no clue how immigration works, since this is my first international flight, so I'm not sure how to answer the "how long will you be here" question. I don't want to lie to a gov't official, but I also feel like answering "3mos" will raise some eyebrows :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Note I did learn about|onewayfly, which should satisfy the "proof of onward travel" if the airline/immigration asks for it.
micayla 8d
If youโ€™re bouncing around the area, Iโ€™d just tell them how long you plan to stay in that exact country. That way the 3 months is broken up over all your destinations and the smaller amounts of time will raise less eyebrows!
That makes sense! Does the passport stamp upon entry have a date that I have to leave by? For example, if I tell them two weeks, will I only get a 2wk stamp and have to leave Spain by then?
micayla 8d
No, I donโ€™t get the sense that they are keeping much record of any of it. They donโ€™t really seem to care from my experience haha and I was bouncing around the area and used up exactly 90 days - some places, even staying for 2 months, and I never ran into any issues.
Sounds exactly like what I'll be doing! Did anybody require that "proof of onward travel"? Was planning on using that OneWayFly service, just in case
micayla 8d
No, again no one asked! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Maybe Iโ€™m super lucky haha bur my plan would just be to show them my flight confirmation info out of the country on my TripIt app if they wanted proof. Iโ€™m sure there are more official ways to prepare for a situation like that, like what you mentioned, but Iโ€™ve never even been asked many follow up questions so I really donโ€™t concern myself with it anymore.
_Googles TripIt app_ :sweat_smile:

Thank you so much, this was really helpful!
> my plan would just be to show them my flight confirmation info out of the country
I don't have one of those (yet) :sweat_smile:

One last question, and I think I know the answer, but just double checking...when traveling b/t Schengen countries, you don't need to go through immigration/customs again like you do upon arrival from the airport, right? I've heard it's much like traveling b/t states here in the US

You have to go through a passport check even between layovers at airports in different countries! So youโ€™ll definitely talk to an agent every time you cross a border, unlike crossing state lines
Sorry, I'll likely be taking the Eurail b/t countries
micayla 8d
Not sure about train travel, sorry woman-shruggingskin-tone-4
No worries, that's good to know in the event the train is too long and I decide to fly bt countries.
Thanks again for all your help!
One way tickets are usually more expensive, though? Why don't you just book a return from the same country?
e.g. arrive in Madrid, return from Madrid
Depending on the country, if you overstay the visa you can be banned for years from Schengen. Had a friend with a girlfriend who almost had that happen because she overstayed 2 days (3 months is actually often 92 days, not 90)
a0viedo 7d
if you travel between countries in Schengen you don't get your passport stamped, that's right. even sometimes you won't get asked to show your passport while boarding, just your flight ticket
a0viedo 7d
I'd be careful of overstaying and maybe expanding those days by traveling to a non-Schengen country in Europe

Hey guys, I have a question related to the 90 day / 180 day rule for Schengen.

Here's my situation.

I landed in Greece (part of Schengen) on the 12th Aug 22 and stayed 33 days. I then left the Schegen and landed in Spain on the 15th December 22 and have been here since. The 180 day period resets on the 8th Feb which happens to be the day I reach the 90 day limit.

Since the 180 days resets, I'm thinking I could just stay where I am and I could do another 90 days.

In short, if the 180 day period resets and someone is in Schegen, can the person stay, or do they have to leave the region?
it doesnโ€™t reset - itโ€™s a moving window
so thereโ€™s a new 180 day window starting on 15 December, so you get maximum 90 days from then (and any other entry/exit day)

but itโ€™s easier to just think about it as โ€œno more than 90 days in any given 180 day periodโ€
sknibaythglx You're right, I've just been reading about that and just assumed that up until a minute ago:)

I now live full time near Valencia.
It's a really nice city. Not too big, not too small, has everything you want and need without being mad busy, beach and mountains not far (a car helps for the latter). Come and enjoy it but keep it a secret ๐Ÿ˜œ
edward_ 4d
Itโ€™s easier to think that every day spent inside Schengen expires after 180 days, and you can only have 90 at the same time

Folks is there one definitive article that lays out differences between the Digital Nomad Visa, the Non Lucrative Freelance and I believe there is another one?
knocte 1d
why do you say you left Schengen when you moved from Greece to Spain?
knocte 1d
you had layover in Switzerland or something?
Ask for people with US visas. Do you know where to call to ask for a visa renewal. Mine is close to expiring
hjbarraza 22h
Gotta make an appointment at the embassy.
Ideally months before it expires, cus' due COVID there are still long waiting times

If your permanent residence is Spain you could try the local consulate

the barcelona aquarium is awesome

I don't know of one, but the differences are rather significant. It's not NLF, it's NLV and is not a freelance visa, it stands for Non Lucrative Visa, you can't work on it at all (not in Spain, not outside), it has to be passive income.
DNV, the new one, is for people who have remote work outside of Spain.
There is also a self employed visa - you need to show solid evidence of a business plan and experience, very hard to get
And so called golden visa (500k cash investment in a property).
