Spain Digital Nomad Visa application with Criminal Records


“Spain Digital Nomad Visa application with Criminal Records: I had an arrest for driving under the influence from 2010, but was only charged with a negligent driving. This is the only thing I have on my record. Does anyone know if this will be an issue with the visa?”


These are the answers of Spainguru’s Facebook group members:

“It should not be.” (Lawyer’s answer)

“I had one similar to you. No problema.”


For individuals applying for the Spain Digital Nomad Visa with minor past convictions such as negligent driving, feedback from community members suggests that such issues might not impede the visa application process.

This insight is especially relevant for those with concerns about how their past legal encounters might affect their ability to live and work legally in Spain.
