At time of writing, we understand that Portugal has a specific visa category for digital nomads, called the “D-type Visa for Digital Nomads.” This visa is intended for individuals who work remotely and do not have a specific employer or place of work, and who are looking to live and work in Portugal for a period of up to one year. To be eligible for a D-type Visa for Digital Nomads, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. You must be a citizen of a country outside the European Union (EU).
  2. You must have a valid passport with at least 6 months of remaining validity.
  3. You must have proof of sufficient financial means to support yourself during your stay in Portugal.
  4. You must have health insurance coverage valid in Portugal.
  5. You must have a clear criminal record.
  6. You must not have been refused entry to any EU member state.

 

To apply for a D-type Visa for Digital Nomads, you will need to submit the following documents:

  1. A completed and signed application form.
  2. A valid passport with at least 6 months of remaining validity.
  3. Two passport-sized photographs.
  4. Proof of sufficient financial means, such as bank statements or a letter from your employer.
  5. Health insurance coverage valid in Portugal.
  6. A clear criminal record certificate from your home country.
  7. Proof of accommodation in Portugal, such as a rental contract or a letter from a hostel or hotel.

 

The D-type Visa for Digital Nomads, sometimes referred to as  the “D7 Visa for Highly Qualified Activities”,  is valid for up to one year and is renewable for additional one-year periods. It allows you to live and work in Portugal for the duration of your stay, but it does not grant you the right to work for a specific employer or engage in business activities.
