Italy Announces New Digital Nomad Visa in 2024

Remote workers can now apply for the Digital Nomad Visa in Italy. As of April 2024, the country accepts applications for the highly anticipated Digital Nomad Visa. Call us on +44 (0)333 414 9244 for immediate help and assistance. We’re here to help you in person, via telephone or online.


Italy Joins Digital Nomad Visa Program

European countries like Portugal, Estonia, and Spain have embraced the digital nomad trend, offering visas tailored to this growing remote workforce. Like many European nations, Italy faces a demographic shift with an ageing population. The Digital Nomad Visa allows them to tap into a pool of highly skilled, often young, professionals.

These individuals bring fresh perspectives, entrepreneurial spirit, and in-demand skill sets to the Italian economy, which are beneficial in specific sectors like tech, marketing, and design, where Italy might be looking to bridge a talent gap.

If you have any questions about UK immigration, our team is happy to assist.

Who Can Apply?

The specific eligibility criteria for the Italian Digital Nomad Visa are yet to be disclosed. Based on recent announcements, it’s expected to be open to non-EU/EEA citizens with high-skilled remote jobs. Italy’s new nomad visa minimum income requirement means prospective applicants must make more than three times the amount that exempts them from Italian healthcare costs, roughly €28,000 per year. Freelancers, self-employed persons and employees of companies located outside Italy are likely to qualify.

With a successful application, digital nomads can expect to enjoy a year-long stay in Italy, with the potential for renewal. On top of the income requirement, Italy’s digital nomad visa also requires health insurance for your whole stay, proof you have somewhere to live in Italy, and at least six months of remote work experience elsewhere. You can apply at an Italian consulate in your home country with an employer declaration, and dependant applications may be accepted. 

At this stage, Italy will follow a similar eligibility to other European country’s requirements for the Digital Nomad Visa.

A Gateway to Permanent Residency

Digital nomads aren’t simply remote workers; they’re often hidden tourists. They contribute to the local economy by renting apartments, co-working spaces and frequenting cafes and restaurants. This injection of spending can revitalise local businesses, especially in smaller towns and villages seeking to attract a younger demographic.

Many Digital Nomad Visas, like those offered by Portugal and Spain, often act as a stepping stone to permanent residency. While details of the Italian program are still emerging, successful digital nomads could use this visa to permanently establish themselves in the country, creating a more stable and integrated addition to the Italian workforce and tax base.

The Future of Remote Work

Italy’s embrace of the digital nomad trend reflects a broader shift in the general workforce. As technology allows for greater flexibility, more and more people are choosing location-independent careers. Countries are recognising this shift and adapting their immigration policies to attract this skilled and mobile workforce.

While specifics of the Italian Digital Nomad Visa are still emerging, IAS is committed to bringing you the latest immigration news. Call us on +44 (0)333 414 9244 for immediate help and assistance. We’re here to help you in person, via telephone or online.
