If you fancy getting away and jetting off to work somewhere far from home, then Spain might be the next place for you.
With the rise of remote working, Spain is planning to introduce a digital nomad visa that will let you to stay and work for a maximum of 12 months. This could then be increase up to 2 times. Startups may also be given tax incentives to motivate young entrepreneurs to make a move somewhere else.
The new Spanish law is part of the recent Startup Act.
A lack of job opportunities in Spain has left many towns and villages with dwindling populations but these destinations, in particular , are more than ready to welcome remote workers.
Around 30 towns and villages across Spain have decided to join the Red Nacional de Pueblos Acogedores para el Teletrabajo ( or National Network of Welcoming Villages for Remote workers ) to motivate digital nomads to visit. They all have under 5,000 locals and want to attract new locals to repopulate their streets.
Whether people stay for a small break or make these places their temporary homes, it is hoped that an influx of people working from home will help to revitalise communities.
Sooner than having to find you own way, the programme offers remote workers a host who can welcome them to the town or village and connect them with life in the community.
You can find an interactive map of the locations calling out for for digital nomads on the networks website but here is a smaller selections of our favourites.
