Does the Schengen days count freeze upon Spain Digital nomad visa approval?


Do we know if Schengen days are “frozen” on the day we get the DNV approved?


These are the answers of some Facebook group members:

”They freeze the day your application is submitted”

”No, they are not Frozen, they’ll continúe, for travel purposes, until you have yr TIE”

”If you submit your application on day 89 of Schengen the legal responsibility resides within the processing period, as such, you remain in Spain until the decision is made including any appeal period. If you decide to leave Spain and return you will have no document to prove this. However, a good local lawyer can file a request based on a specific reason such as a death in the family and similar”

”Get your tie card appointment”


In conclusion, according to Spainguru Facebook group members, opinions vary regarding Schengen days upon DNV approval: some claim the days freeze upon application submission, while others suggest they continue until obtaining the TIE card. Legally, responsibility may lie during processing if the application nears the Schengen limit. Leaving without documentation might pose challenges unless justified. Getting a TIE card appointment is advised for clarity and smoother travel.
